    We did that in 2001 (funnily enough the rope was tied to the same tree!!) Didn't have Fancy hard hats though!!

      We have do it reasonably regularly, the main reason is that we have made good contacts with a group of CTIs, who seem to be more than helpful.

          I remember being promised adventure training, some years back.

          I remember being promised all sorts of training over the years. Two units & four years later, I finally decided that all officers and CS's are lying ****ers.
          Take these men and women for your example.
          Like them, remember that posterity can only
          be for the free; that freedom is the sure
          possession of those who have the
          courage to defend it.
          Liberty is being free from the things we don't like in order to be slaves of the things we do like.
          If you're not ready to die for it, put the word freedom out of your vocabulary.
