• Publication week for Descent 296

    'Having just come back from expedition jetlagged and pushed for time, I thought adding eight extra pages to Descent would be the best way to get back into the swing of things. I hope you'll all find that the extra hours were well spent'.

Another reason for considering Eurail is that you're probably less likely to be affected by strikes at UK airports...

She'll definitely need something substantial. Have you seen the state of her oversuit? :ROFLMAO:
I am going to buy a new one for the summer!! I'm happy to drag my old one through yorkshire caves that I know well for a bit longer but not stupid enough to go down the berger without gaping holes :ROFLMAO: just wait till you see the state of my harness and jammers...

yeah, I do hate airports. I have flown once in the last 5 years and it was a disastrous experience (stuck in the airport for 2 days, slept on the conveyor belt, then when we finally arrived home had to wait 10 hours for our luggage)

I can get all my kit into a 80l bag (weighed in at 20kg) and a 45l petzl transporter. No idea of the weight of the transporter but probably about 12kg. Transporter had all my textiles. Only caving kit in the hand luggage lithium batteries. I have also do Eva 4 day trip to France, with all my cave kit in hand luggage. The French were not impressed when we flew back as all the metal work was covered in mud.
I also suspect that what ever you use for a cooker you will need to buy the fuel in the country as not sure you can fly with it.
