What caving related thing did you do today?

In the shower after a bit of digging, thought it fun to find out what you did today. May be like Twitter, 140-ish letters per post, not counting but short, not full reports

Made a start putting some patches on my somewhat battered Meander suit, to spare others the sight of my arse hanging out of it..

Jet washed Oxlow grit off a load of ropes, krabs and suits. Charged my Duo after having it shining out the window all night to illuminate my BBQ party.

Watched a guy get bitten by a ferocious cave cricket somewhere underground in Venezuela on BBC2's "The Dark" programme.

Me too - I did over 200m of prussicking to try and get back into some sort of rhythm after nine weeks of horizontal steel work...it hurt, but was pleasingly quick.

Wow, some great replies, s'not a contest, just if you did happen to do something caver-like today, e.g. wear rubber/PVC/harness, you can post it here

Had an interesting chat with a surf shop owner about how he used to sell second hand wetsuits to cavers. That's it.

Led a trip through Honister Mine and washed ropes from yesterday's Rowten Big Gully and Jingling Pot trip.
