    16340 batteries

    Well, I've just paid over £25 for a branded Fenix 18650, due to (a possibly over-abundance of) caution - which stung a bit, but I felt better safe than sorry with Li-Ions. So I'm interested in what "treating your batteries right" means in this context. Does it mean I would have to watch a...

    Small mammal to greasy slab

    Sleets Gill was on our club meets list for this weekend, which we've obviously had to cancel due to the amount of rain we have had/will have. Now I know it needs 'a period of settled weather' before safely attempting it - but it made me wonder just how much? Three dry days? A whole week...

    How big is the average UK caving club?

    I wonder how many of the 90+ years are active cavers? (Whatever 'active' means... please don't discuss!)
