Najdena jama Cave Forest Venue


32063. The rope which Metod and Manč brought from Najdena jama cave as muddy as it gets, after Žan passed it through his hands, submerged in the water, three times and left it for another 36 hours in Malenščica, a tributary of Unica river.



Cave Entrance


32064. Brajko, in a nice clean caving suit, descending down the entrance shaft



32065. View from the entrance shaft out, to the green tarpaulin, to the roof above the bucket haul tripod



Upper Depot at -5.5 m


32066. Brajko with the bucket. He will pass it to the author of these lines who will ...



32067. ... attach it to the rope with a carabiner so that Ile can pull it up to the entrance. The process was repeated 51 times.



Ground Zero at -14 m


32068. Marjan and Gregor at the beginning of the bottom tunnel, to call them Radošca Dream Team would be no exaggeration.



32069. Gregor is assessing the situation at the excavation front at the end of today's work for the most efficient start next time.



32071. View of the excavation front down the access tunnel. The small chamber is no more - only its more distant wall remained and now serves as the place where digging will continue.

32073. Another recent automotive acquisition, now in the limelight as the BMW X1 departed west for a romantic, love-is-in-the-air voyage to Monti Pallidi. It is a Citroën Berlingo, 2006, 200.000 km, near-mint condition, 3.500 euros.



32074. Marjan in his seat - the roof is still in the making but prospects are good.



32075. Brajko, with some assistance by the barbecue-chef Gregor, prepared himself two juicy cheeseburgers - one is shown here.



32076. Gregor and Marjan are just about to taste these 8 king-size čevapčići on a stick.



32077. Ile fearlessly tackled a serving of grilled sausages.



32078. Žan, Gregor and Marjan at the table



32079. Lunch: cooked celery, carrots and potatos with a touch of baked pork, contributed by Žan, and a compote of apples and plums (bio raspberry jam was not used)
