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

7th June 2018: with Jake, Mike, Jonathon, Brockers and Alex.

Jake digging, Mike passing the filled buckets up to Jon who was loading the skip. Brockers did the brunt of the hauling up the slope and I was emptying the skips for Alex to shovel the sediment up onto the spoil heap. Some large boulders were shifted but they were retained for use for wall building in the future. There was lots of sand and lots of banter, at our end anyway.

Time passed, it reached beer o’clock, we left the cave, got changed in the car park and headed up to the Hunter’s for well-earned refreshments.
