Well, even with CCTV it seemed to be easy, because we were never caught - and for some reason it never occurred to us that somebody might be watching us   :o   We were so trusting     ;D

Though, perhaps it wasn't that we were never caught, but that they just watched you and if you didn't actually try to get into the funnel or pulled out your screwdriver and socket set they didn't say anything.

A number of years ago on a cruise l was taken up to the place we speak of in hushed tones for a private tour.
It was late at night,Beyond the Dog pee lamp post we climbed higher, (well took a few steps) and it was all worth it,
As l stretched out my hands l could feel it throbbing in my hands, all red and hard as could be......
for what seemed like a long time l enjoyed each and every moment and intended to make it last.
 Oh..The funnel was pretty impressive as well :o :o, Since that night nothing has ever recaptured the sensations of my first
Funnel Run,and for good measure l gave it a hug, the Funnel and marvelled at the experience
It did a number of years ago, before CCTV was installed prove to be a very interesting place.....
(perhaps this post should be under sleeping with the crew ???)
When l hear tales of the Funnel Run, modesty permits me asking was it a Funnel Run..OR a Funnel Run ;)
If you know, you know what l mean, if you dont....er....

Then, when you realise that youve had not only a mini Cabin Cavalcade, but an Intransit one, then there is only one place you can go, and thats The Funnel Run, and those that know about it will know what its all about. those that dont... well its best left not spoken about, my first was in 1988 but some things are best left unmentioned...
