With Nick, Jake and Tav.

Nick and me did the digging stint this session, Tav was in the pot, Jake did the haul and shuttle to the entrance. At the end the way north seems to be closing down a bit but there is always the east side or over the top. 40 bags and a few rocks were shifted out to the surface. The claggy fill is not at all easy to extract from the bags especially those that have been compressed at the bottom of the pile and with slippery gloves leading to some cursing on occasion. If it was summer we could dry the lumps in the sun, like adobes, and build ourselves a hut, or another wall.
