Spent yesterday dangling on string and lugging Acrows in a project.   Today I am just about to head off for an over 50s bimble (think Last of the Summer Wine) down one of our pre covid finds to tie up some loose ends.

Robbed Warmbac of £130 (metaphorically speaking) by repairing two tackle bags  :)

[edit: I did actually buy two new bags from them this week as well]

Well, it was actually Sunday, but close enough...  Finally managed to get out of daylight for first time in months.  Testing out some new kit for filming and re-started a project that's been on the back burner since the world ended several times ago.  Managed to increase dithering and faffing around levels by quite some margin in doing so.  Of course could have just taken the TG-6 compact, but where would the fun be in that?  Unfortunately I seem to have a face for radio and a voice for the silent movies so may need to re-do some of the audio I recorded!

I hope you made it a bit wider than the ones they used to have in 1984.

On a bank holiday weekend the batteries would go flat after about 30 or so trips and we had to revert to footing them. The boat got a bit close to the wall lights on one trip and everybody shuffled to one side resulting in me falling in and having to wade all the way back to the entrance.

An interesting looking space! Church or art gallery? or something else?

Drove 200 miles from Kent to Blaenavon hoping to not find any evidence in Blaenavon Woods and above Cwmavon of any traces of old Draenen conduits between 350m and 300m. Then drove 200 miles back with very sore feet. As no evidence of conduits was found this counts as a completely successful expedition!

Got tired of having all my caving gloves develop a large hole between thumb and index finger after only two trips. And I'm even decadent enough to have separate SRT and digging gloves  :dig:
So made a glove out of an old oversuit earlier today, let's see how long that lasts. Probably three trips  ::)

Just back from a 7 hour caving trip. Also a bit knackered...

Here's proof:

I have a plan for tomorrow. See if my lighting arrangement can film video under water remotely.
