    What do you talk about on trips?

    Life, in general. But I find talking can be a good indicator of how people are fairing. Someone who is not very talkative, or become less so, might be showing the initial signs of hypothermia. At the very least, they might not be happy for some reason... it is worth asking if someone who has...

    Suspension Trauma

    If I ever whitnessed someone struggling and suspected ST I would imediately get them to raise their legs, which I think could potentially buy some time, potentially the difference between life and death.

I have had rope stored in my cellar for years without ANY rodent damage. They were hung up on pegs screwed to the...

    Exploring with Fighters - a warning to all mine explorers, cavers and URBEXers

    Let's be honest, posting on social media dedicated exploring sites is all about ego really, nothing more, nothing less. We should do what we can to encourage explorers to join caving clubs where they can learn the correct etiquate and show respect to all the people who have spent years...

    Lamp & Check Meet - South Yorks

    My glass is not in great condition although you would normally see the flame through it quite readily. Bear in mind I am floursescing with a 365nm torch so it renders the glass opaque. There are scratches inside the glass that doesn't help as well. Yeah worth giving him a shout I guess.
