    Visited with Zippy, Si O' Doom, Angel and Explorette.

    Met up with Si and Zippy at Waterloo as planned, and got the Eurostar over...

    Zippy...

    Met up with the girls at Paris, got changed, stashed our return kit, and got the metro to the usual start point...

    On the way, stocked up with booze and food at the supermarket, and made our way in. Running a bit late, we went straight to Bysance to meet rug.

    This set of pictures from Rue Sarratte...

    Angel...

    Well, we met up with Rug, who had a bag of beer and his famous Blueberry liqueur. A few drinks and we were off looking at other rooms in the SW.

    While the others were doing the photo thing, I went off with Rug and saw some hidden stuff...

    Then it was a pleasure to meet Doctor Zvinkel in Le Plage, and a plan was hatched.

    It was Si's birthday, and although our plan was 'OK', we didn't expect a party. Balloons, cakes, candles, pressies, booze...

    The time came when we had to head North, so we said farewell to the French, and set off. Found two more ossuaries...

    Eventually made it to the room we were going kill a few hours at.

    Si's feet...

    This is NOT what you want to see in the middle of the night, in the middle of nowhere, several hours from the outside world...

    After breakfast, set off to the East...

    Don't recall seeing this before... 'Iron Ladder'... it's just that, a change in levels in a tunnel...

    Eventuall made our way to the South. Angel, Zippy and Explorette went to the Ram room, while I sussed the exit out.

    Five of us were to leave by a manhole in the pavement, on a road junction, in broad daylight, at 5pm...

    ...and we pulled it off perfectly. Planned to perfection and executed flawlessly.

    Manhole open, OT out, bags out, people out, lid closed, leg it. The looks on the onlookers faces was priceless.

    Straight to a bar for a large well-deserved beer, then start the long journey home.

    Thanks to everyone involved, a great trip :thumb
