Not a showcave just not too far from the entrance.  ;)

They are obviously skilled cavers, although it is unusual to see the one on the left underground these days.    :lol:

Is it a showcave? Those guys look remarkably clean and are not wearing oversuits etc.

naaah - they're just double `ard  8)
I didn't wear an under/oversuit while I was there. I actually own warmer stuff now than I did when I visited. Overheated this past weekend in KY!

I bet you wouldn't go down Swildons dressed like you are in your avatar.  :o

It is neither Shatter Cave or Shatter Passage.

Swildons is cold, for sure. And correct, I wouldn't - I didn't even start off lacking clothes in TAG. You can take off clothes, ya know, right?

You don't look so fat there, fair play for getting through :lol:

I have found a few more Mendip Photos so blow yourselves out with this little gem.
Obviously it would be unfair for those that were there when it was taken to guess, if you know where it is then you will know if you were there with me.


Is the one on the left Tusker and the one on the right Ivan?

I did a (mostly) naked caving trip once. A dry cave I hasten to add. I am sure most of us have done that.

Hope I haven't just put anyone off their tea.

The one on the left is Known (Gnome) who no longer caves.  :lol: The one on the right is a friend of mine that you won't know.

Not even sure I know. I'm not kitted up, so it can't have been more than a bimble inside! I resent the remark about me not caving! Just taking a hiatus and sorting life out with my good lady.  :tease:

I wondered when you would be along  :lol:

If you need help recalling the trip it was that time when Hughie had inadvertently told the whole of Mendip where we were going to  :spank: and there were more people in that cave than there were in Swildons  :lol:

I saw Known once. And again some time later. It wasn't underground, though.

Can't be! I saw him underground just this past November! Did you miss him? I mean, okay, he did run off ahead with my pack so fast I never got it back so I lack photos from about half the cave. tsk tsk! Maybe he was just a flash of my imagination...
