    First Aid Kits

    Not sure if this has been mentioned, but eye wash! It’s so easy to get grit in your eye and it can really affect your ability to get operate. Plus, you don’t want someone’s grubby hands in there trying to get it out. I’ve seen some people out there who seem to be prepared for a real “worst...

    Browns Folly Mine

    Haha no, it’s still incredibly clean. Like being in a museum! There’s also a couple of very beautifully written hand made signs pointing you in the right direction around the place too.

    Sallys Rift

    As an enthusiast of “collectors item” caves Sallys Rift is one of those that I’ve read about and considered a trip for a while. Does anyone have any information about it? There’s a lot of academic material on the formation of gull caves out there that feature it, but mainly I’m wondering is it...

    Somerset Underground 4

    I Thought that might be the case! But I have been trying to get a copy of MU for the last few years and I’m starting to worry I’ll expire before I get one.

    Somerset Underground 4

    Somerset Underground Vol 4 is listed on the back of my copy of Vol 3, but I can’t find it on any forums. Does it exist? Has it been published? Is there a date for publication? Oh and if anyone has a copy of Mendip Underground Vol 4 I’m also after one of those.

    User friendly rigging? More like loser friendly rigging, right?

    Rope Etiquette

    Nice! Free rope right here! 😂 Depending on how well it’s rigged probably leave my rope there and use theirs, I guess it would depend on a lot of factors. Some venues allow for a second rig, and a second group quite well, some don’t.

    Why do you do this for fun?

    Because I like climbing, mountaineering, and canyoning. Since caving is a combination of the best parts of those things, it’s essentially an exercise in efficiency. Honestly I don’t know. Someone once said it’s like being on the moon - it’s a totally different environment. I’m sure a lot of...

    Interesting challenge for someone wanting a house in the Dales ...

    Perhaps that’s the kind of remote but not remote thing some wealthy person is looking for 😂 The house on the road up to Leck Fell (the one on the right not long before the first gate) sold for something like £1.6m if I recall correctly. It’s in a national park and rural space is at a premium...

    Interesting challenge for someone wanting a house in the Dales ...

    I think if you knocked it down and invested maybe a bit more than that, went with solar, recycled grey water/rainwater, etc you could make an eco house that would probably sell for well over £1m. Lots of people willing to pay lots of money for a nice house in that kind of off grid location.
