Expeditions 2018
« on: December 16, 2017, 06:40:31 pm »
Is there a list of any expeditions in 2018 looking for members/volunteers/victims?

I know Dachstein 2018 are looking for members, but I'm not a huge fan of SRT.

Suggestions?

TIA

http://www.gharparau.org.uk/map_beta.php may help, although there aren't many 2018 trips listed yet.

Fantastic resource, thanks!

The Royal Geographical Society has something similar but caving expeditions haven’t been updated for a number of years.

Check out Matienzo.  Great caving most of which isn't vertical.  Usually there are Easter and Summer expos which welcome all. 

There is also a lot of this  :beer2:  8)  ;D

can also vouch for the matienzo expedition, relaxed and friendly, and loads of new cave still to be explored. they usually have a meeting in Clapham bunkhouse around February time, a social and some planning.

There is also the ongoing Caving in the Abode of the Clouds project in Meghalaya, India. There's an annual expo to the region in association with the Meghalaya Adventurers. The Grampian Speleological Society are heavily involved with it and members go every year.
Actually, I believe a couple of Brynmawr members have been and may be looking to go again in 2018 so might be worth having a chat with them.
