The publication date for issue 289 is the 10th of December, meaning subscribers should receive their copies during the week leading up to that date. It is also available from caving suppliers such as Inglesport and Starless River, or from our new website
Though not necessarily proficiant at either. Anyway to " celebrate " my 60 years in caving. Also maybe to celebrate a remarkable survival considering some events over the years. All of this from yesterday just after my 75th birthday.
A special thanks to my long term mate Peter Glanvill ( Mr O'Doc ). What great fun and discoveries we have made over the decades. New pals as well. Long may it continue. The big boulder in the roof we call " The Elephant " ( The elephant in the room ). We try not to talk about it.
