Well 2010 has been a busy year for caving so I thought I would post a photo year in review.

My 2010 caving season kicked off late 2009 when Myself,My wife Nina , and my friend Luke went to horne lake caves to do the 5hour extreme adventure tour as Peter Curtis had advised my to do.

Next trip came in January 2010 after I ran into peter in the grocery store and expressed my interest in going caving. A few days later myself David Wall and Peter Curtis where heading for lost Richard cave to finish surveying up some lose ends.

Awesome pictures, however even with me being with Arrowsmith Search and Rescue you still wouldn't catch me doing this. No thank-you boys and girls. This isn't my idea of fun in confined places(oops Baddog).
