What's your worst nightmare

I can't imagine how those cave kids must have felt. I panic when I get stuck in a lift.
Well done the rescuers .

I have been in a cave in that area. (not that particular one) I bumped into an elephant in the cave in the pitch dark!

I used to tell my former boss, who is American, that in Yorkshire we have a waterfall significantly higher than Niagara, (though admittedly nowt like the volume of water) which rarely did people get to see, it being completely underground.

He simply refused to believe it.

There was a TV programme (maybe Countryfile) where Julia Bradbury went down Gaping Gill, it was quite fascinating and interesting to view.

I wouldn't like to go caving or potholing either here or Thailand, I couldn't fit through some of them holes they slither through, the views from the rescue divers head cams shows the terrain like an assault course and that's just inside the caves, they said it was even more treacherous further in, why did they go into these caves was it some sort of team treat or reward.

Apparently the reason the Thai boys and their coach went into those caves was for an initiation ritual.

They certainly won't forget it, thank God they're out safe and well.

I recently saw a video of Sondoon Cave. This is in Vietnam and was only discovered by chance by a farmer who saw a gap in the cliffs. What is inside is amazing.
