Welcome to the forums. Great videos, but I would have been afraid of there being methane in there, too.




Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Actually...the methane didn't really bother me...( I guess the flowing water helps) ....it was the "cave ins". You can reach right up and grab a rock off the ceiling.

I see alot of Canada on this board. I am in NJ ...US . But my wife is Canadian... (Victoria BC) ...beautiful place

At least you can say you done it - not really somethig I would be real eager to do, I've worked underground in too many places and now have a healthy respect for the weight of rock over my head, especially loose rock. Can't believe that the tunnel openings are so easily accessible especially in the lawsuit-happy USA, somewhere there is a huge liability there.
