The benefits of living in a port-a-loo began to loose it’s charm with the on going supply shortages. Alternatives were found, but the decision to use 10 over 8mm was the obvious choice. The next difficulties were to explain yourself making that ‘essential’ journey just to wash some rope.

At last the long awaited Petzl changing facilities.  Spare the blushes of the villagers of Priddy and Clapham with this fully waterproof changing pod, the Petzl Shroud. 
Test Report: wears away badly at the seams after several uses.

It looks like someone has made a slight mistake when ordering the Hidden Earth beer marquee...

Don't tell Mark I'm teleporting, "I don't want to go caving" a.
And I'm taking the bloody ropes with me

And if you want it a little warmer while you get changed you just connect this pipe to the vans exhaust.
I have a plan so cunning you could pin a tail on it and call it a Weasel.

Unfortunately, despite the description on eBay, when they received it 'top quality tent 5 person, outdoor mountaineering camping' wasn't quite as good as it had appeared.

The club's secret dig was coming along splendidly. 

They'd not been able to get a vaulting horse that would fit in the back of the van, but Inglesport had come up with a couple of alternatives...

I was very tentative about this, but I canvassed opinion and decided not to flap about it.
Anything I say is represents my own opinion and not that of a any club/organisation that I am a member of (unless its good of course)

Many thanks to everyone who entered the caption competition  :thumbsup:

Badlad and I drew up a shortlist as follows:

Vulcan: Even the changing tents are getting involved in the northern access vs southern access debate.

Paul: Two of the most recent members of the Agoraphobic Caving Club preparing for a caving trip.

nearlywhite: When I were a lad the only caving huts we had to pack rope in were a flimsy tent on side of road...Tent? You were
                      lucky! We had a soggy cardboard box in a pothole. Young people today...

aardgoose: ...cunningly disguised as small tents, the Giant Man-eating Ducks found that shy cavers made easy prey.

Pie Muncher: Once fed, they seem to smile contentedly!

aricooperdavis: "Elon swears it's watertight!"

Blackshiver: And if you want it a little warmer while you get changed you just connect this pipe to the vans exhaust.

RogerW: "Really!" said Sue from within the toilet tent.  "What on earth makes you think I suffer from tapeworms?"

dugadig: If he doesn't hurry up in the bog tent..  I'll just shit in his tackle bag!!  >:(

alex: I was very tentative about this, but I canvassed opinion and decided not to flap about it.

and the winner is....thank you random.org....Vulcan!

Congratulations, Vulcan.  I'll be in touch re how you can claim your £50 Inglesport voucher kindly donated by a fellow caver  ;D

More competitions to follow - and I am delighted to say another anonymous donation  ;D  :thumbsup:

Thanks once again to ukcaving for organising it and the mystery caver for the prize.

Great service from Inglesport as usual. I now have some books to read to help get though the lockdown.
