Yes- the things down there have tentacles, and they don't half tickle!

The reason why the woman at the back was always remembered as 'Di Hard' was revealed only moments later, when the monster came back to life and devoured her.

Only Tim knew that the creature's next victim had already been marked for sacrifice. Looking back down the tunnel at the spot where its terrible head and jaws would soon become manifest, he felt guilty about persuading her she would be much more comfortable if she wore blue cordura than yellow PVC.

The team tried to put a brave face on it. But there was no getting away from it: getting this tunnel ready for HS3 was going to be a hell of a lot of work. And apart from that, it was in totally the wrong place - despite the media reports, this Three Counties thing was mile and miles from the M62!

Cavers call Cthulhu!

Congratulations, Alex - you win!

I didn't get it, so Googled Cthulhu - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cthulhu

...and you were spot on - and I've learnt something  ;D

Thanks very much to all who entered, there were some excellent captions as always and I wish I had tickets to give to you all....

Alex, please PM Badlad to arrange collection - he'll have them with him on the night.

Thanks also to Kendal Mountain Festival - not only for the tickets but more importantly for helping to showcase caving to a wider audience  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Cheers, Pegasus  :)

PS - if you haven't bought your tickets yet:

http://www.mountainfest.co.uk/tickets/buy/776530

....come and listen to awesome lectures and watch a caving film premier then have a beer afterwards with your caving mates - much better than staying in and watching the tellybox :)

Wow thanks! I must admit I thought it was Saturday, when I entered... I am now desperate scrabbling to see if I can get someone to come with me as I am not sure John can come on friday. I assume I am best booking a bed at the red rose or something as that will be a late night drive back for an hour and a half back to mine from Kendal.
