Nicest stalactites I've seen so far. They look almost organic, like the Burnt Fuzz anomaly.

Birth of a Cave Diving Legend - A Tribute to Sheck Exley

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wE3m8FAomn0


---QUOTATION---
This film is a tribute to legendary cave explorer Sheck Exley prepared for the 50th anniversary of his story "Lost in the Slough", one of Sheck's most miraculous dives. Through re-creation and investigation, we rolled back the mysteries and uncovered details missing for 50 years that put this story on par with any classical tale of yore. In this case, a teenage boy takes on an underwater labyrinth completely devoid of light and air. The cave teaches him the discipline of the guideline by hiding the real exit while providing him with a false one that sends him into a primal struggle for survival. In the end, he escapes through dogged determination but also because he had unconsciously reserved enough air to find a new exit.

All these posts about going underwater and exploring or dying. Sounds like you miss Subnautica or something. I think in my experience, the scariest and most terrifying was playing the original Half Life and going underwater and dealing with those huge fish that could move super fast and bite the hell out of you. Imagine if the Stalker Games had some underwater activity.

It's not so much about the water and swimming, as the mindset that comes with diving: exploring hostile, alien environments at the edge of human capability, where laws of nature don't work as we're used to...

I will absolutely replay Subnautica, in fact I've begun to miss real-life diving as well now (may have to do something about that).

Boesmansgat cave diving documentary

Sheck Exley Bushmansgat Cave Part 1
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=268JddzrjXc

Sheck Exley Bushmansgat Cave Part 2
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcQOlhMqF9k

Note the extreme prepping...

Sheck Exley died the following year in a Mexican cave. That same year Deon Dreyer died in Boesmansgat, his body wasn't found again until ten years later, when Dave Shaw and Don Shirley tried to recover it (see previous link 'Ghosts of the abyss').

The documentary above is very good. The videos below are shorter.

Same wreck in 1992, when it was more intact.

One more dive video from 2020

You've got underwater fever. Nothing wrong with that. It's just making me want more PC Games involving the same.

I must simply start diving again. I spend too much time playing PC games anyway. Too bad there are no fun dive sites nearby.
