As a long time caver I?d love to encourage my daughter who is 9 to come along on some easy trips! An outing yesterday had mixed results but was mostly positive!
Main worries seemed to be cold feet and self confidence!
I guess my question is, what are parents top tips for firing and...
Streamlining the amount of stuff I?ve accumulated!
1 x Poseidon Cyklon 300 with a metal 2nd stage and a contents guage on a new short hose. Good condition, probs due a service etc. ?125
2 x BigBlue AL1200NP dive torches. These are the best torches I?ve ever used! Used about 4 times! RRP of...
My friend is running the Manchester Marathon on Sunday for a charity which is very close to both of us. Her little boy was born with a congenital heart defect (I was born with a hole in mine - not as some exes would claim, and entire absense of one..)
If anyone could spare even a couple...
As my Scurion has permanently departed to pastures new..
I have a box of spare O rings, a 4 cell spare battery, some odd screws, replacement lens and Scurion charger etc. Not sure how much life the battery will give as have never used it but it does hold charge and work.

Not a popular place for cavers so I suspect it?s gone for good but if anyone comes across one for sale?
As many will by now know, sadly Rob Dalby of the CDG and former YSS member has died following a diving accident off the Scilly Isles. He has not yet been located but is not alive.
Rob and myself along with Colin Pryer joined the CDG together almost 20 years ago and he was an active caver and...
Does anyone know if a Topo survey exists for Sleets Gill?
Alternatively during flood conditions when the main cave is filled, does anyone have any idea of the distance from the water surface at the entrance to reach a point which would create airspace throughout the main passage. Eg...
Over the summer I had the thrilling experience of my house and all my caving kit washing away down the river swale and should really get round to replacing it! (Top tip-buy contents insurance if you rent)
Specifically I could do with acquiring
Harness and chest...
Firstly I should say quite openly that I have a proffesional interest in this but I also think it's important that it's brought to the attention of cavers who cave in the dales as it will seriously impact the ability of the fire service to attend incidents such as flooding and diving incidents...
If anyone is looking I have a full set of Northern Caves 1-5 for sale, very good condition, prices from oxfam in front page but otherwise they've never left the bookcase so no loose pages or mud! Open to offers...
