Outlandishly Outsidish 10 – Unzipping

You may have noticed that this series of “Outlandishly Outsidish” posts are really not very “outlandish” at all.  In fact they might be considered by some as being “inlandish”, or they would if “inlandish” was still a word.  This noticing may mean that you have got the point; being outside is an adventure in itself, not enough people do it and not enough people have the adventure.  Every time I go out and do something “outsidish”, no matter how mundane, it makes me feel more alive.  This is Blonde Wisdom of which you should take note!

Lecture over and on to “Outlandishly Outsidish” number 10 which, by a strange twist of Blonde coincidence, was a bit on the odd side.

I met a cave diver down at Deeper Marsh the other day.  Which in itself is a bit odd because cave diving in marshes must be very tricky.  I watched him cave diving (minus the cave) in the river for a while and went for my walk.  When I came back he was in the car park.  Blonde curiosity got the better of me so I asked him what he had been up to.  We had a nice chat about all things cave and Dartmoor and while we were chatting he was struggling a bit with his dry suit zip.  If you have ever tried to remove a dry suit, you will know that it is not the easiest of procedures, particularly while you are trying to hold a conversation with a Blonde.

I think my offer of help went something like this, “I don’t usually offer to undress blokes in the car park but would you like some help with that?”  I will leave it up to you to guess what happened next!
