Home Sweet Home! At -2100m (-6890ft) underground, the team’s lowest camp inside Veryovkina [cave] looks like this. After years of experience, the Russian explorers have devised a great system of staying warm and dry by cooking meals and boiling water on gas stoves inside the tent. The heat dries out all wet fleece clothing, whilst the outer suits hang on clotheslines outside (pictured). A week later, during the flood pulse that suddenly plummeted into these chambers, all of this gallery completely filled up with water and was totally submerged. The last of the Russian explorers had to quickly swim over this tent in order to evacuate the chamber as it rapidly filled up with water.
