I have a plan for tomorrow. See if my lighting arrangement can film video under water remotely.





Same video lights I use, find them really good and great value in fact the camera and much of the other is the same it looks like you have stolen all my kit  :lol: Is it the TG5 ?
I dont know where I am going, but will know where I am when I get there.

Renewed my Descent subscription for the next 2 years and bought both John and Rick's new books while I was on the Wild Places website..

Very tenuous connection to caving, but bats live in caves, right.  :)

Sat through a 2 hour meeting for work today with this epic backdrop. Needless to say we spent a while admiring this (and all the other interesting vehicles) in the warehouse after we'd finished  ;D

“Mine related “ more but could help dig projects in caves continued reading my timbering in mines teaches you every design their is and how to install them right down to the cut dimensions with the angle & measurements.

material collecting for 31th expedition towards two new systems in France :-) We leave on the 2nd of july after being  blocked for over half a year due to covid. We skipped about 4-5 trips due to pandamic.

Very happy to go

Ha Ha Mike. I could have told you that. Only our minuscule Kate has done just that. We have thought about capping it bigger. Maybe one day ---

The infamous squeeze marked here. Currently a challenge to any visiting caver who thinks that they are small enough. There are still possibilities with digging here but currently The Tuesday Diggers are working elsewhere.

We did have one who was thin enough, but she didn't want to commit until we'd seen both ends (& then didn't fancy going up it). Still an LHB just before it.

Visited FPS Air Compressors Ltd in Oxford to collect the breathing air compressor that they've generously donated for the raffle at the Cave Diving Group 75th Anniversary dinner!

I'll certainly be buying plenty of raffle tickets, though it might look a bit suspect if I win it myself...

You're too modest. But yes, it is finally done, and lockable too. Derbyshire Key now required :)

Had a walk up to GG, then a walk towards Newby Moss. Saw a big yellow frog near the entrance to Grey Wife.
