rambling on

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

4th October 2018

With Roz, Jonathon, Duncan and Mike

A mellow evening. Jon and Mike rotated the digging, Roz transferred the filled buckets to the skip, Duncan hauled the skip up the slope and I emptied the filled buckets. The procedure was repeated at a regular rate. A large rock was reduced in size, the pieces were added to the wall retaining the spoil.

The evening was concluded at the Hunter’s Lodge Inn in time honoured fashion.

27th September 2018

Duncan, Mike, Jonathon and Alex kept up the effort. Buckets were filled and emptied, rocks were removed.
