With Jake, Alex and Nick.

Nlck and Jake at the business end, Alex hauling the bags and for a short while I helped out with the shuttling. When a dozen or so bags had been filled and stacked in the entrance it was my turn on the surface to haul out and empty the bags.

A total of 40 bags plus rocks shifted from the dig, we did think it would be a little slower this session as there was some rock barring forward progress. At least one of the rocks was removed and reduced to moveable pieces but the remaining rock(s) will require some chemical persuasion, this will be sorted out as soon as the supplier returns from sunning himself in the Caribbean.

To the Hunter’s for the usual refreshment and chinwag.
