    Lunar caves

    I thought this was very ill researched by the BBC.. We all know, that should it be possible to colonise the moon.or Mars, in caves, a quango would have been set up prior, to prohibit the right to roam in a cave without a permit, signed in triplicate by said quango. A fee would be payable, an...

    Las Breñas Lanzarote.

    Today, Connie and I went caving in Las Breñas cave. A lava tube extended during COVID by an English/Dutch group of cavers. The end. Translation follows for the Wokerati generation, in the interest of diversity and inclusion. Today, a #homophobic #racist #xenophobic English Brexiteer went...

    BCA AGM 11th June 2023 - details

    What on earth are you on about Alex. What ideas are shit? Have we met? I guess not because I'm not a pal. I'm libertarian, I'm not one for over arching political structures, believing that the best things get down by folk behind the scenes without the need for committees. I don't know...

    BCA AGM 11th June 2023 - details

    I'm a fan of old institutions dying out. I'm no anarchist ( well maybe a little) but all institutions have clogged themselves into stale mate where any form of action is almost impossible as a result of red tape and legislation. I'm all for collapsing institutions and returning to basics...

    For those who are scared..

    I think caving just has all the most common phobias in one sport. From heights, to enclosed spaces, the dark or spiders. Even just being cold and wet is unpleasant without any preconceptions and puts many people off. That said, we had a guy in a club I belonged to that didn't like the dark...

    AditNow vanished?

    Sometimes these sites are more trouble than they're worth to those who host them. I hosted a caves of Lanzarote site for a while, many UK cavers benefited and enjoyed the free guide to the world class caves here. It's lead to NASA Mars caves scientific involvement and symposiums as a result of...

    Choice of outdoor gear brand

    Ironically, fewer people will be able to afford Patagonia clothing with the fight against plant food in gaseous form, partly responsible for increasing the prices on everything. 😏

    Lava giveth and the lava taketh away

    One of today's post caving bar discussions was La Palma. For those of us also interested in vulcanspeleology, we could be witnessing the creation of the new lava tube. Conversely, the flow is very near Cueva Todoque ( Cueva de las Paloma's), and so where some new caves may be created we hope...
