It's true - you can get oversuits in any colour you like, these days...

Fed up of struggling though tight squeezes? Try super lube to slip right through. Caver edit out now - only available in brown.

Finding themselves short of caves, the newly formed Essex Speleo Group has taken to exploring local sewers.

In hindsight they unanimously agreed that going for a curry the evening prior to the arduous day of caving was not their wisest decision.

Go caving they said,
It'll be fun they said,
It's not muddy they said,
It's sporting they said,

They never said it was like this though.

"I'm not sure about that Northern Caves book. That was nothing like it looks in the picture! I was expecting a nice streamway and a pretty waterfall to keep our kit looking shiny and new."

"I thought you said it was right next to the road. How the hell are you expecting us to get back up that B****d hill now?"

Mate, did you take us to the wrong cave?"

Some stains contain strong natural dyes that are almost impossible to shift. Dab with a strong solution of detergent before laundering. Soak stubborn stains in a solution of hydrogen peroxide bleach.

Research shows that one out of seven dwarfs is Grumpy.

Stuck in a tight spot? New cave mud will have you free in no time! Simply apply to the caver in peril and watch them slide free in mere seconds! Availible from all good sporting caves. Colours may vary.
