Made first caving trip of 2020 with Ralf into Goyden pot and also Guscott pot. Bailed sump and went beyond Telegraph aven to Crater chamber then climbed aven we had not climbed before (others have)...came out in flood caused by wind action on reservoir further up the valley. Went to the pub of course to talk about digging plans in 2020

Cut and split the logs collected on last weekend's caving trip.
Thanks to Somerset County Highways, I'm pretty much sorted for next winter  ;D

Sprayed captured water from a hose and removed lots of dirty filthy mud from one of our digs.

I always hum this whilst I'm digging. Actually released as a single - what optimists :smartass:

Finally got round to trying to patch up a monster hole in the Upper back of my PVC oversuit, next up is tackling the holes in the crotch and lower back. Then have a think about how to repair the cuffs that are falling off

Well, it was yesterday actually. Followed the Llangattock Escarpment walk in the excellent Caves and Karst of the Brecon Beacons National Park by Mike Simms. A great walk and we learned a lot about the geology. We're hoping to do more of the walks in the coming weeks.

Yesterday actually went caving. Also left the Facebook Group " Cavers of Facebook " as some photos of "models" appearing here are dreadful. Standing on all sorts of stal. This was getting me into arguments and I can do without the angst.Today I am charging the drill batteries ready for next week.
Oh and of course editing yesterday's" snaps ". ( They are not RAW ).

From yesterday.

My old mucker Peter Rose. 110 combined years of us two digging together. Keep hauling Pete.
