Delivering the 1600kph Bloodhound wheel…

But first to secure the cheese in the RRS's boot. Last night, at about 10pm, I received a text message from an unknown number. It read: a couple of 500kg ratchet straps, some chocks and a LOT of bubblewrap... This wasn't - I established in the course of a mildly embarrassing text exchange - the kinkiest booty-call SMS in history, but rather a missive from a worried Bloodhound engineer making sure I'd considered the realities of securing 220kg of slippery metal on a flat bootfloor. Clearly, I hadn't.
