There are a few misfits who float a thread on here called "Thursday Nighters". If you're Llanberis area and don't mind the drive they're often getting their snouts dirty Gwydyr forest or Ffestiniog way. I popped out with a few of the usual suspects to Aberllyn Mine and they were all good blokes.

The chaps at Parys Mountain are a bunch of muddy bludclats and were very hospitable when taking yours truly for a rummage in their holes. The trip they offer needs no specialist gear, but do supply lid n lamp if necessary. Tip them 10 squid towards upkeep + insurance and you won't regret it.

There are also some highly capable and experienced females in the TNers who can and do run circles around me Surrender

They can run circles around most of us.

As an avid rezpektor of wammin, it is with deep regret that I neglected to mention the clunged-creatures amongst sausage grove!

But realzies, all good people and it's well worth your time acquainting yourself with these keen and knowledgeable folk.
