With Tav, Jake and Nick.

The prime task was to clear the backlog of bags, Jake took up position in the pot, Tav hauling from Stal Bend, Nick on the shuttle run to the bottom of the entrance, while I was on the surface hauling and emptying the bags. After a while, and half the bags cleared, the buzzing of flies around my head proved too much and Nick and I swapped places. When the bags were cleared Tav and I went along to the end to fill some more bags, Tav doing the filling while I was in T Junction. There was a strong draught today and got a little chilled at the junction. We are following a well developed and very old fossil passage that is just full of crap; it will keep us happy for quite a while yet!
