It's the one that Morrisey and me didn't go down, it was fooked.

P.s. that fall hurt a lot more than I was letting on.

Fabulous pics guys! Really really nice. I was more than gutted to miss this as last years still counts as one of my favourite underground trips, but then I was eating cheese, drinking lots, and yomping through the dales with the girls. So it's not all bad. I've had all the gory details from John as well

Saturday was an excellent and very long trip had a laugh all day being educated about yop socks and how not to traverse the BODOD,was disapointed and relived that i didnt do the BODOD but thats what return trips are about,a 25 strong group in a mine i thought would be way to many but it was no problem and was good to meet folks off other forums.respect goes out to edus and speedy caver for rigging it all up and not letting idiots stop the trip.Looking forward to a return trip already.heres my take on the day.Also if you took the dry route out you are a pussy
