Its somewhat easier to hump 2-3 tackle bags if you can walk rather than make like a spiderman tribute act.
It’s noticeable that not many people in the UK have used one, let alone own one. Expe still sell them.
And yes, I handed mine over to the the deriggers when we met. Was very grateful after if I recall.

My lad Ben attempts to exit the barrel after the exercise ball is pushed in... He was in there about 20 minutes while we laughed... then he got his arms past the 'constriction' and worked out he could deflate it... clever boy... although 'idiot' according to his little sister.  The video is funnier - paste it here on Flickr

I've been putting some caver training videos together now I have a bit more spare time. Annoyingly I don't have a cave to film in or an appropriate cast of extras, so I have made some compromises. I have not been talking to him, honestly.

Emma’s garage pot - Grade 3
An awkward 1m down climb to a chamber. Hand line might be useful for some.
The chamber quickly degenerates to chokes at both ends.

Glad to make this discovery before the new northern caves comes out!

It goes...I really didn't think skippy's dig was going to go...

I've just realised - that's a different entrance there!

You've got a through trip!!

Yes, quite an outing.
Social distancing is essential after this trip....

I didn’t enter for the tackle bag, I entered for something to do and feel part of it really

Keep us all sane and smiling!

All that gear is quite unnecessary there.  The young lady showed clearly that Grass Sump is quite capable of being free-dived.

Nice, I have still yet to venture under my house, I know there is an underground to this house! If it's anything significant rather than a 2ft by 2ft space I may do another vid, if I can get in without being electrocuted that is.

If you electrocute yourself it'll make a great video.

I had a proper look today, right cowboy doing the wiring down there. No chance am I going down there, its a pity there appears to be several chambers under the house, and standing height in places by the looks of it. A few artefacts I could see too.
