After my first trip down Daren Cilau in 1985 to the White Company & back. I got there from Mendip riding pillion on my mate's motorbike. I wore my caving wellies for the journey to save weight. They were wet through for the trip home and my feet were frozen by the time I got back to Somerset.
My feet are cold just thinking about all the times my feet have been cold.
We were once helped out in one of our digs by a gang from a university club. Part way through the dig one of the guys said (after working very hard) that he was going as his feet were a bit cold as he pulled off his wellies to empty out the water. To our surprise he had bare feet! When asked why he said 'I forgot me wet socks so I chose to come like this so I a have something to change into when I get back to the car'
I really think this is the sort of competition i might be able to win....
Peachey had himself forgotten his wellies (still not really an adult),
Sam Richards once told a few of our novices that wetsocks are great because they keep your feet so much warmer. They didn't realise that he meant wetsuit socks, so filled a teapot up with warm water and decanted it into their wellies just before a trip to make their socks warm and wet. 5 minutes into waiting on the surface in the falling snow and they were looking daggers at him
I'm quite enjoying reading these stories, but am I the only person whose feet don't really seem to get cold? I'm not sure I can remember any trips that would qualify as an entry for this!
Did you not even have cold feet when I saw you at rowter farm in the freezing rain and sheet ice. that coated the springs on the gates so you had to whack them with a descender just to unbolt the gate.
