    Ive not done that series but try and go caving and mine exploring when i can. I'm a member of the Derbyshire Caving club.
    A few weeks ago I did do a mixture of the following videos. Underderground for around 4.5 hours. (videos are not of our club!)

    No way would i go anywhere near that shit, @dibbler how do know nothings gonna shift as your going through all these different bits?
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    Holy crap.... there’s no way I would be squeezing my fat ass in caves like that!

    Interesting tho, and good that people film it so I don’t have to go at all!

    A lot of the mines and caves we visit have surveys so you know if theres any unstable areas like false floors or dodgy rocks.
    One of our club members was climbing a rope and a very large boulder dropped on to his head and shoulder. He managed to get up the rope to a safe spot. The guy that was with him then finished the trip and had to call the cave rescue team. He had to be stretchered out and it took about 8 hours before he was on the surface. Nobody knows where the rock dropped from.
    I was at the bottom of a 90 foot vertical shaft helping to clear old digging crap out of the mine. We sent up some old steel bars when one came back down. I was off running down one passage and another caver went off down the other way. I saw the sparks as it hit the wall and felt it hit my wrist. I'm surprised it didnt break my wrist.
    If you dont like the first one watch this one!

    Two stories that stick in my mind and would prevent me from even trying anything where I have to act like a boa constrictor and wriggle into a hole...

    1) the kid in the us that got stuck upside down in nutty putty...

    2) the English bloke that worked at the bakery. His hobby was potholeing so his manager asked him to go in a bread baking machine to fix a fault. The ovens weren’t cool enough and essentially the conveyor pulled him and some other dude through the machine and ‘baked’ them both coming out at the other end like a couple of crispy minstrels.

    Very grim ways to die, not on my list...

    There are two stories that would prevent me from ever doing anything where i had to wriggle like a boa constrictor in to a hole in the ground...

    1) The store of the kid in the US that got stuck upside down and died in shitty putty caves or something.
    2) The guy in the UK who working in a bakery and his hobby was caving. Essentially his manager asked him to go inside a bread baking oven to fix a fault. It hadn’t cooled enpough and the convert system running through the machine dragged him and some other bloke through the ovens. Coming out the other end dead and looking like a pair of crispy minstrels.

    Both grim ways to die that are not on my list...

    im a qualified rebreather scuba diver and have done deep cave penetration dives in the past. some very deep dives, some involving many hours of decompression.
