With Roz and Alex
We arrived at the farm to find that the cows had escaped from the field and were exploring the yard. We helped to round them up and persuaded the cows to return to the fields, before getting ready to walk up to the cave.
After many years of digging, all have gone down the slippery slope and followed Another Emotional Journey, it now seems that we are being led Up the Garden Path.
The skip route Up the Garden Path is obstructed by two boulders and a bulge of rock; 4no. 500mm x 12mm holes were drilled, 2no. in the bulge and 1no. into each boulder. While this was being done Roz and Alex carried on to the dig where they dug some more sediment from the floor and bagged it up. They went through to the end to look at the newly accessed rift chamber and see the potential ahead for themselves. Alex took some bearings, confirming that the passage is trending west to east.
When they returned, I could make the necessary connections, retire to a safe location and bring the evening to a satisfactory conclusion.
There will be plenty to clear on the weekend.
