Caving Author Tells fictional Tale


New member
:coffee:  Hello and welcome to the 'Gloom Room'
I am a newbie to caving...I have seen many a strange thing.....Chicken tikka...1000 feet deep. But thats a poultry story....During my childhood I lived in dark wallsome places. terraces that towered over my very bones.

My grand dad told me tales from here and Wales.

He spoke of roping, coping, and sloping...all over the place...Turned out he used to be a miner. Back in Welsh wales. dust and slag....Funny coz my sister became an oil rig technician. Diver. It seemed I had an interest........
