Yes, there are air vents.
No, I'm not lifting the floor, or GAMI to lift it, it's too much disruption.
Having been rummaging around in the damp there's no danger I'm putting Kingspan anywhere near it.
Not sure a membrane on it's own to stop draughts will help much as the place is mostly carpeted.
I didn't realise you needed a membrane on top as well as underneath the insulation. I'm rapidly going off the idea. Sigh.

Interesting discovery. I noticed that Tomsk's AUK number is higher than mine, and thought that odd as I was sure he must have been riding before I got involved. Trawling through the Audax archives, it looks as though Tomsk first rode a 300km in 2001, starting in Wrabness. Felstedrider was also a finisher on that day. Tomsk's first 600km was in 2002, from Steeple, with Ed Knight and Dick Nuttall in the finishers list.

My first Audax was the Shaftesbury Spring 200 in 2013, in which Tomsk and the Strangler also rode. My second ride was the 400km Severn Across, 2 months later. Nothing like a gentle introduction to Audax! Phil Whitehurst and Richard Ellis were also riding that one.

Back to my discovery ... AUK numbers do not seem to be sequential in order of date joined.

I was talking Mick Gray about this on Saturday as he was doing Audax almost before I was born. He said that AUK used to give out new numbers every year, but I'm not sure when that stopped.

Are you such a disgraceful liability that the NRL won’t let you play?  Come play for my club.

May's arrival follows the controversial signing of Israel Folau in 2020, after the former Queensland and Australia international had been released by Australian rugby union for homophobic social media posts.
Yeah, we have a track record of this sort of shit.

Yes, those VC 167s can go for you! Is that what Trev and I always called Thorpe Thewles viaduct when we were kids?
