Great! :woohoo: Leaving Rhos on Sea at 5.30, if you can get here, great, if not, I'll swing by Mochdre and pick you up. Can't really give an accurate time we'll be back, but we usually go for a quick pint after a trip. Shouldn't be mega late though as the other guy who is traveling with us has over an hours drive after Rhos on Sea.

I assume you have a headlight / torch as my spare is already spoken for? Helmet is a must but I've thrown a couple of spare ones in the van if you haven't got one! B)

Welcome to the forum Bear.

I will be at spar mine tomorrow so will see you there.

Do you need a helmet & lamp or have you already got your own?

I will bring a few spares in case either way


Ant - your forum threads taken on a life of its own, lol

The water level in the mine is rising, but the majority is dry. I'm wearing wellies to give you an idea, as some areas may be knee high or deeper (spare socks & jeans advisable but top half should stay dry but will get dirty). Do you know Conwy Candies sweet shop on Colwyn Ave in Rhos? (just up from Spar & the chippy) I work there for my sins and I'll be leaving there at 5.30.

Any probs, my mobile is 07729444248 and work phone is 01492 543622.

I'll be offline now for the rest of tonight but will be online from 10ish in the morning.

See ya tomorrow :woohoo:

Because what I hate more than all of those things is being scared of anything. I love mooching around old mines and in order for me to it, I need to push myself out of my comfort zone. I did a trip a few weeks ago which consisted of 24 ladders down. It wasn't a big deal for most people on the trip but for me it was hugely satisfying getting to the bottom then even more so getting back to the surface :woohoo:

Cheers dude. As the t-shirts say "I live with fear everyday, but sometimes she lets me go caving" (please don't tell the Mrs. I said that though)

There is a small section (muddy) where there is water which should not go over your wellies ... there are "stepping stones" in the water and provided you don't fall off them you won't get wet (with wellies).
