Anyone planning surface explorations or sub-surface trips now that we're heading towards 'relative normality' again?

Paul.

Had an interesting walk around the Elan mine yesterday Smile

Would love to, but Mendip is now 2 hours away and Wales even further, plus I still have a house to finish off..........so in short not this year, maybe next spring I might start up again.

I have been busy for a few weeks doing maintenance in Reigate caves, but as they are walk in off the pavement sites (literally) and are electrically lit and all walkaound stuff, it really is no different risk-wise to a multitude of other things we are allowed to do now, but without the queues and 2m rule, as the nearest person will be several metres away walking past a closed door!
