Insieme per Daniel

Daniel, un ragazzo come noi, uno speleologo, un padre, dopo una vita dinamica, sportiva e attiva improvvisamente e misteriosamente si è ammalto di Sclerosi Laterale Amiotrofica (SLA), diagnosticata nel marzo 2015.
Daniel è stato anche varie volte con noi in spedizione.
E' passato solo un anno e mezzo e Daniel ora non si muove più e parla a stento. Ora c'è la possibilità di provare una nuova cura ma purtroppo costosa e insostenibile per lui che non lavora più.
Aiutiamo Daniel ad affrontare le spese per una vita dignitosa e per curarsi con le cellule staminali.

Parasites and parasitized

Sometimes, back from expeditions, we feel inquiries about animals present in those areas. In particular of those considered dangerous (jaguars, snakes, crocodiles...). Sure encounters with these animals will take place. And certainly they are often dangerous encounters.

But often are animals so small as not to be taken into account that makes expeditions problematic. One of them, for sure, is the Tunga Penetrans or Nigua, the smallest existing flea (for more information refer to the wikipedia page).

Finally news from Albania

In Albania everything is ok, they have finished to explore the cave Spella Mark detecting other 400m of new branch. There are still some points to be explored but the majority was done. It is not too difficult, a lot of mud and some bestial narrow but it goes. Above all the logistics is very difficult.

Uzbekistan 2016: La Venta on Chul Bair, twenty five years later

We are on Chul Bair, the central sector of the Sur Khan Tau chain, at base camp Boj Bulok, to 2670 m altitude.

As in the previous five mornings, we are preparing to climb up to 3550 m of the entrance in the wall of Chul Bair 15, a cave discovered in 2015 and that this year is unfolding definitely. The past few days we have explored down to approximately -200 m: after a succession of short jumps there is a wonderful and very hard meander, tight at the start and then wide an average of half a meter, to go through in the top, in the bottom, or in split or in opposition seamlessly. Soaked and slimy in the final part (explored), in pure Boj Bulok style to be clear.

Albania - Curraj

A new collaboration for La Venta. The Martinese Speleological group, in collaboration with the Bolognese Speleological Group GSB-USB and the Faentino Speleological Group, is leaving for the second consecutive year for an expedition on the Albanian Alps.

The project takes its name from the village of Curraj I Ëperm  located in a river valley in the foothills of the mountains Kakise (2.359 m.) and Boshit (2.415 m.).

Started the explorations on the great wall

12 hours by bus. 6 hours by "cattle truck". Just as many hours walking helped by mules but loaded like and more of them.

Saturday was prepared the base camp at an altitude of 3500 and already yesterday started the operations with some who have climbed on top of the wall. Their goal is to reach some entrances in the wall already seen last year. The hope is that are caves that somehow go to connect to Boi Bulok.
