    Hi Everyone, or anyone that's been arsed to read this....
    I am a 39 year old laydeee (just) who has got quite a few explores under me belt (considering ive been doing them mainly with small people a husband and two dogs in tow, no mean feat I can tell you!!)
    I will put some links up on here.
    I am looking for a group in the somerset/dorset area who would be happy , willing, able to join forces with, that hopefully also have a bit of experience under their belt on a regularish basis . (obviously leaving the kids with their dad) so I can get out and do something a little bit more adventurous. I got in to this quite by chance, and have loved what I have done so far, but theres a few places id like to revisit with some company so that I can push it a bit farther. Be good to hear from anyone.

    Hi :) all sorts really, some things ive found off my own back, others ive heard of or read of. We are based in somerset but on the dorset border, so have done lots of portland, (which is literally rife with stuff) none of it as in depth as i would have liked as ive always have family with me. Ive done a quarry (didnt get to go right in to the mine as i was on my own - kids and husband waiting in the car!!) and Holton Heath (the cordite factory which i think maybe be being demolished as we speak) but only did the outside bits which in themselves were fascinating. Have done (again not in depth) an old ironworks , which was fascinating but too many bits i was worried about heading into with the kids. Apart from that ive done all sorts of bits and pieces, random finds by the side of the road etc etc. Its pretty much a weekend hobby, although like i say im limited with my young kids so be good to get out there once in a while and really get stuck in. im none too shabby with a camera either ;)

    I'm in Weymouth so if you two ever want to do any local stuff then I'll tag along. I'm fascinated with Portland, eventually trying to work my way around it
