This or That Game

Postby Ralph E. Powers » Nov 10, 2008 5:53 pm

On another forum there's a game being played which is pretty neat... thought I'd import it here... with a specific twist... everything this or that... must be cave/caving related... just to give an idea...

1st person: Lions or Tigers

next person: Tigers

Beach or mountains?

next person: mountains

hiking or swimming

and so on...

there's no right or wrong answer just your preference the more people participating the better variety of this or that questions...
you choose one then present a different choice that is caving/cave related no explaination needed, this game can be a good one for long road trips to/from caves in a vehicle full of cavers... :grin:
to start:

Caves are rare and precious things. Cavers...even more so. Treat each accordingly.

Bobbin.

Alpine rigging or IRT (Indestructable Rope Technique)

<Edit> Sorry I guess that might be a bit derogatory, I didn't mean it to be, I just couldn't think of a term and that's what it's called here :oops: </edit>

Perhaps a better way to say that is:

9mm rope, Rebelays and redirects or 11mm rope, Rope Pads and rope protectors?
