rambling on

is all about excursions in the countryside including caving and digging trips, walks and thoughts.

24th May 2018: with Jake, Jonathon, Alex, Duncan, Nick and Mike.

Nick, after a longish stint working away, was keen to get back to digging, so we let him, Mike clearing away the filled buckets to Jake, who was loading the skip. I was at the first stage of the haul with Jonathon and Duncan pulling the skip up the slope to Alex on spoil dispersal. The sediment was added to the ever-increasing spoil heap, there weren’t many stones, mostly silty sand.

When the time reached ‘ten past beer o’clock’ we finished digging and headed out of the cave.
