Siren sounds, big wave coming,..where would you ride to?
I was intending to post a comical video of the Wavey Davey from Vic Reeves Big Night Out, but you’d have to watch a whole episode to get there.
In the meantime, I discovered Wavey Davey is quite something else in the age of Youtube!!
I have henceforth retreated to high ground!!Posted 4 years agounknownSubscriber
Last year in a coastal city in Chile, the wife and I were walking along the beach and the dirty great tsunami alarm went off. There are signs all over the shop showing you were to go (up, and away from the water) but no one else was panicking. Turns out they test it at that time every Wednesday…Posted 4 years agoandylMember
In all honesty I’d probably just stay in bed and have sex.
time the money shot for when the wave hits 😀
Depending on time I’d either head up to the old fort just up the road (one of the highest points around here) or I’d head up to Crooks Peak as it’s got much more height difference than the surrounding land and nearer to the coast so I’d get a fantastic view of the wave coming ashore.
Would make sure I had plenty of gravy bones for the dog too so as we may be up there for a while.Posted 4 years agohot_fiatSubscriber
Hmm at 4m above sea level if I couldn’t be with the family, I’d go to the beach (its 1/2 a mile away) with the longboard, paddle out and wait for the great leveller. would probably end up over the falls but it’d be good to try.
Otherwise it’s me, heavily pregnant o/h and the dog onto the KTM and off up to deadwater fell above kielder with a tent.
Tbh you’d probably not want to survive at all: if cholera and dysentery didn’t get you in the months after, fallout from our coastal nuclear installations going haywire will.Posted 4 years agodeadkennySubscriber
I’m 80ft above sea level anyway as is the surrounding land and it only goes upwards into the Surrey Hills up to 900ft-ish. Would be like riding on a cliff top with a view over the sea to the south, and maybe the south downs as an island.
Pretty much how it would have been however many millions of years ago. Just look at a terrain map and you can see the North Downs and Surrey Hills are a sea cliff, or the edge of a glacier.Posted 4 years ago
