Ok. How can punting be deemed a suitably thrilling activity for the adrenaline junkies of the outdoor group to include it on their busy itinerary?
Perhaps we should have taken the punt out onto whitewater rapids? Could’ve been interesting, but I’m not sure we’d have got the deposit back (or punt for that matter) if we had.
Or would it be more exciting if I started this with a 999-Lifesaver style introduction?

How Richard saved Tania’s life
For press officer Richard, the 10th of September 2006 started off like any other Sunday. He never dreamed that, before the day was over, people would be calling him ….”A Hero”...
Shocking images of a daring dive into the murky depths of the Cherwell.
Or maybe not.
Truth be told, it was a terribly civilised outing, gliding between colleges and admiring the sights… not quite the Pimms and picnic scenario of Oxbridge undergraduates, but getting there.
Of course, there were the odd encounters with hawthorn bushes which induced impressive outbursts of swearing- from me because I couldn’t get the stupid pole upright enough to push off from the bottom and from the crew because of the inconvenience of being snagged and scratched without warning.
Just a few photos for now- more to come.
Go girl, go!
