Take a pontonniere and walk through the canals. If it?s wet and you are rigging leave it on to the bottom.

Its somewhat easier to hump 2-3 tackle bags if you can walk rather than make like a spiderman tribute act.
It?s noticeable that not many people in the UK have used one, let alone own one. Expe still sell them.
And yes, I handed mine over to the the deriggers when we met. Was very grateful after if I recall.

My lad Ben attempts to exit the barrel after the exercise ball is pushed in... He was in there about 20 minutes while we laughed... then he got his arms past the 'constriction' and worked out he could deflate it... clever boy... although 'idiot' according to his little sister.  The video is funnier - paste it here on Flickr

I've been putting some caver training videos together now I have a bit more spare time. Annoyingly I don't have a cave to film in or an appropriate cast of extras, so I have made some compromises. I have not been talking to him, honestly.
Playlist of YouTube vids here if anyone wants to see how I have been attempting to keep myself sane: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPtjeyu5Unm190qg2HFuehCHoR1kAlrNg

Emma?s garage pot - Grade 3
An awkward 1m down climb to a chamber. Hand line might be useful for some.
The chamber quickly degenerates to chokes at both ends.

Glad to make this discovery before the new northern caves comes out!
