Last time I was in the Eldon as in NCCC with the Eldon PC must be 45 years ago and there was a snow plug in Summer at the bottom. How is that decent and exit as I would love to wander down this Spring and pull out a bucket full for old times sake.  Or would that be trolling.

We had another good session at the dig face yesterday. Mark R, Mark S, Adam P and me finally got the next section of roof completed and installed a fair bit more scaffolding. There was a howling draught blowing out of the dig floor, getting stronger as we hauled more and more buckets out of the bottom.

It shouldn't be long now.

Be careful the remaining fill doesn't suddenly fall away beneath you.

Anyway, well done and good luck.

We did have such a discussion yesterday.

We will be very careful.
