Bad air / pollution / bad bolts / etc

<< < (2/15) > >>

Cap'n Chris:
July 2008, Poor air in Swildons Hole; noted Sunday 20th.

10:40am-12:00pm
Barometric pressure: 997

Pressure in preceeding weeks >=1005-1010

Suggest reason for poor air is recent heavy rains washing in organic detritus which is now rotting in situ.

Hatstand:

was thinking of going to the 20 or the sump next week not so sure now :doubt:
any bits to spesally stay away from?

Cap'n Chris:
No reason to stay away; merely pointing out that the air in the cave isn't pure and wholesome - it won't kill you or nuffin*. In fact, come to think of it, there's nothing wrong with the air in the cave whatsoever, unless you happen to like running everywhere and prefer not to be out of breath while doing so.
