Lock - no key!

I secured my ladder to the bar outside, and climbed down. I knew I had another padlock in my box, so I also locked up the bottom of the ladder to the steel eye that hangs from the roof of the entrance crawl. I immediately wondered if I also had the key to this lock, and quickly realised that I didn't. Geoff reassured me that had a hacksaw in his car, and we decided to cut off the bolt immediately, rather than leave it for later since we didn't know how long it might take. The moral of this tale is that if you carry a lock around in case it might come in handy, keep it snapped shut. That way you can only use it if you also have the key!
