When I closed the lid I saw kangeroos now I see some Shetland pony's. I think I might took a wrong turn somewhere in the cave.

Skippy’s happy for two very good reasons... firstly he stashed all the loo roll where nobody would find it, secondly he made it with seconds to spare after that dodgy curry went right through him.

Unsure if that was a reference to a horse or a Shetland Attack Pony...

I didn't realise that GPS Track stood for "Grinning Potholer Surfacing Track"

A new look to Gaping Gill as it receives a face lift to conform to mendip access requirements.

For April 1st we placed some manholes in the middle of popular paths, with a camera to monitor.

I was thinking the latest Welsh/Mendipian conservation technique of installing fake entrance lids for people to grind locks off.

Or

Smiles all round as a Cornish caver passes their Mendipian lock/gate removal exam.


[Should add, I'm very much in favour of uninformed public dissuading measures such as lids where needed and also I have no reason to suspect the Cornish are more gate breakers than installers but being from Devon,  the odd chance to insult the Cornish is appreciated]

Given the caption and the prize offer, only someone who knows me very personally would come up with that quote 🤔👍

Hey guys you’re not going to believe who this caught breaking lockdown last night!
If a problem can be solved there is no use worrying about it. If it can't be solved, worrying will do no good.

The judge is working on finding a winner.  Announcements to be made as soon as she can.  Sometimes other matters take priority.  Be patient please.
