For several days I have been thinking of cave diving. Strange maybe, since I know that it’s something that I, most likely, will never do. I don’t like the idea of diving with a “roof” over my head, and not being able to surface directly. Ice diving being the only exception. At least to me. “Regular” decompression diving is bad enough, but diving in a cave or a mine!? Nah, I don’t think so.
Despite my brain’s inability to deal with the idea, I am absolutely fascinated with cave diving, and the people who do it. And I really admire their psyche.
The film “Into the Darkness”, by Marcus Taylor of Real Adventure Film, follows British cave divers Rick Stanton and John Volanthen on expeditions to Cogol die Veci in 2004 & 2005, and gives you an insight into their personalities. Enjoy!
