It's in the New to Caving section. Are you a novice too?

The problem is that if you abseil into the system via the "Recent Topics" shaft it isn't immediately obvious where you've landed.

Yes - I know it is marked at the bottom of the page, but you've read the latest posts and replied to 'em before you get that far down!

I can teach you all four:
1) Do
2) Don't
3) Avoid
4) Run away

Something else you shouldn't do, order a Bacardi Breezer at the Hunters, as one member of my club once did !
Now be thankful for good things below
