FAST Riddle #31 - RETIRED
Bummer. We just got home from a day-long excursion and I finally checked my e-mail backlog. Too bad this riddle was retired, since my wife and I were actually at Faslane during our trip to the U.K. last September, so I would’ve nailed this one before any clues!
C’est la vie. Okay, “la vie.”
Och, it appears this one was a wee bit tougher than anticipated, unfortunately. Doug and Alex were the only ones playing. I thought Jim would catch this one for sure, but apparently he did not.
I am retiring FAST #31, and will provide FAST #32 on Tuesday morning.
The answer to FAST #31?
The driver, Clyde, had made the mistake of shifting to the FASLANE (FAST LANE), and so wound up in that bay in Gareloch in bonnie Scotland.
Faslane is the site of HM Naval Base Clyde, in Scotland. It was the home base for U.S. ballistic missile submarines (SSBN's), and now is the home bases for British Vanguard class SSBN's.
FAST #32 also will follow the theme. Look for it Tuesday morning.
Most guesses repeatedly missed the pony that this riddle was back on theme.
Nevertheless, there were some fun guesses along the way, however:
Thanks for playing.
