Found a promising quarry

Postby Dutchmudding » Sun Dec 12, 2021 9:48 pm

Hi all. I might have found a good place to sink.
It is a sand quarry with a large settling pool.
That appears to be pretty deep +10 meters.
It contains large heaps of sand a couple of meters high.
I went exploring there at night and found a spot where I began sinking right away.
Sinking deep is new for me so I pulled my boots out right away the suction was pretty intense. The material seemed to be a creamy mix of sand and clay. Now I have a couple of questions.

1. Do boots or shoe wear make it harder to get out?
Do I have to enter barefoot?

2. What kind of clothing do you recommend. I was thinking of buying a shorty wetsuit.

3. Is it possible for materials in the settling pond that haven't settled fully yet to collapse under me and pull me completely down?

4. How do I get out reliably if I sink up to my shoulders or neck?
