North Wales Digging

Another Sunday spent in the company of Heather and friends of North Wales Caving Club. A great volume of dry sand was dug, bagged up, hauled up to the chamber above the dig and made into sandcastles. This continued until we were exhausted, the oxygen had run out at the dig face, the fan to pump fresh air to the diggers had packed up and and one member stabbed himself trying to repair the connector to the fan. The connection between cave X and cave Y is now 4m closer, unless of course we are going in the wrong direction and we are now 4m further away.
