Down the Mountain – Part 2

This is the second and final part of last month’s article about the fascinating sport of bobsledding, here transcribed by me for the blog in Anniversary.

  1. Well after reading this (and part 1) I should be able to jump into a bob-sled and win a race or two.

    I’ve some questions as usual though:
    p2c1l20 – 1st outline
    p2c2l20 – “driver ? the whole show”
    p4c2l16 – 1st outline

    and clarifications:
    p3c2l21/22 – is it “unusually high”?
    p5c1l5 – is the second outline “fun”
    p5c1l6 presumably the last outline is “chocolate”.

    I encountered a confusion between “line “and “lane”. (p4c1l22 outline 2; pc1l22 last outline; and p4c2l2; p4c2l3.)  Whichever word it is makes a sort of sense but in this case the dictionary l-a-n for line may be ambiguous. (Is that why you used l-i-n when we first encountered the word?)

    1. The word was “line” in all instances; I thought I had corrected all the “line” outlines, but I missed two. Here are the other ones:

      p2c1l20 – “It must have”
      p2c2l20 – “driver seems to be the whole show”
      p4c2l16 – “first class”
      p3c2l21/22 – “unusually icy”
      p5c1l5 – “foreign”
      p5c1l6 – “chocolate”

      Incidentally, if there is a need to distinguish between “line” and “lane”, I would mark the long a in “lane” accordingly to make it clear.
