So, someone happens to find out you're a caver.. They are not but seem to know an awful lot about it somehow. Here's a few of the usual responses I get:
"Aye, and does tha do that potoilin' an'all?"
"You'd never get me down a cave, I'd be claustrophobic"
"I bet it's freezing i'nt it?"
"You'd better be careful it dun't rain and flood t' place"
"Do you go along them really tight passages? What if tha gets stuck?"
and a couple of the best ones I ever heard....:
"Can you go caving at night aswell then"
"Isn't it dark though?" :D :D :D
They then usually get punished for their ignorance with a discourse on digging Bagshawe and an illustrated demonstration of the change from Phreatic to Vadose in a passage. :twisted:
