    Yep I know this has been done a hundred and one times!

    Here's my take on my visits to this great place. I've been three times now and met some great people from 28DL whilst exploring. I took all the usual 'tourist' shots but tried to get a few different one as well and I'll post these up:

    Cheers guys! Thanks for the great comments :thumb

    You're right Phil.d it was a quiet start. The day I met up with you and Silverstealth, I got there at about 7:00am for a solo explore. After about half an hour I could hear my heart pounding in my chest when I heard someone else was in the next room! :eek: By the end of the day there was quite a group of us. :D Admin is wonderful, It has to be the highlight of 2007 for me.

    Here's a few more from my trips:
