... you start making macrame hanging baskets and doing Joe Wicks HIIT videos. :doubt:
Are we the same person? This is literally my life at the moment

When your eyes have to adjust to bright daylight because you've eventually left the house, rather than a cave.

When you start meticulously perusing every single word that's written on UK Caving.

Well, thanks to Boris and is comrades in arms I can now devote 100 percent to free time and 0 percent to caving.  Lovely.

You have taken to pointlessly surveying the local stone mines (within walking distance, so local) so at least you are underground, even if you will never finish! (absolute maze).

3 trips down 550m surveyed, I guess the survey will be pretty??? Not like anyone will ever use it lol.

Still the blizzards on the walk back across the hill on Wednesday were fun?

Are they the ones where there was that CRO call out many years ago with folk getting lost?
If I remember right they were in there a day or two before being located.

Nah those are further away from me and I really would need several decades to survey those. This one I am doing is more stable and a bit smaller, prob about 5km of passages, rather than 200km!

Still even these are definitely within easy cycling distance...

So you will end with a map like this ?

When you've added a UK Caving shortcut to your home screen and your morning routine now consists of checking UK caving and staring endlessly at the Easegill surveys you glued to your ceiling so that you can go 'caving' from your bed.

I went to Maracaibo and back before 10am today!

Møre info about these mines can be found here
https://bergloper.nl/ . Go to the “Waar ?” Tab and look for Zonneberg under Maastricht


They are called “mergelgrotten” but are not natural😀😀🙁

...you are begging your doctor to send you for an MRI scan so you can experience the feel of a nice tight pasage again.
