Članska vas Village


40845. Evoking memories of old pals, Jozl and Milan, who left us recently: Žan, Ičo, Ejč, Fofr, Marjan and Metod



Cave Entrance


40846. The entrance received a new tarpaulin rain cover, recycled after a long time use in Logatec. The subtitle (white letters on green) reads: Poleti kot ptica / Fly like a bird.



To the Cave Bottom


40847. The main cave depot, with rocks excavated today, seen from above ...



40854. ... and from below. Interesting to note is the bucket at the right, more or less dry while the others are all moisty. The author attributed this fact to strong air current but was later informed that the bucket was outside for repair and just a short time ago returned to the cave.



40848. The pit below the collapse at the end of the cave has become so deep that some climbing is required to reach its bottom.



40849. Lower right in the picture today's excavation reached ...



40850. ... the ceiling of a new tunnel.



40851. The opening between the ceiling and top of the collapsed rock below is just about 20 cm high ...



40852. ... but quite wide.



40853. Further digging will not be required for the time being, just removing the small rocks until the best direction, where to proceed, is determined.



Članska vas Village


40856. It is departure time: Marjan, Ičo, Metod and Žan ...



40855. ... only the Članska vas banner has to be lowered and packed away in Žan's car for the next week's use: Žan and Marjan.
