Yup 2010!! Found a HDD full of photos some of which I just never went through! I remember this being quite an experience so thought I'd share. I can't for the life of me remember who I went on the explore with, other than DHL and The Engineer! IIRC I think Adders was there, maybe Bubblehead, someone else?? :confused

This place is reported several million times already but I thought I'd add some info :)
