Oh well, throwing fantasy away, I'd descend with the full scuba diving kit - diving in cave's waters has to be something really wonderful, we're working on it (me and my scuba diving team), but they need a scientific reason for let you dive there... since the caves we're interested to are also a Paleolithic site, perhaps I could arrange something with the university... but there's a lot of work to do!
Greetings,
Mauro.

If you are going cave diving be VERY CAREFUL!!!!! Cave diving is the most dangerous type of scuba diving. Here in the US you need special certification to cave dive.

We too, it's a license called "Grotte" (litterally, Caves).
It's obtainable only by certified CMAS diving clubs; luckily we're part of the CMAS and sooner or later I've got to get that license!
I'm in my 2nd grade ARA license now, allowing me to descend at a maximum depth of 35 meters (114 feet)... perhaps this summer I'll get another license called "Secche e Relitti" (Shallows and Shipwrecks), but I'd also like to try the "Notturna" (Night diving)... any suggestion?!  Smiley

you swine, guess I've got no choice - okay then: titanium mail, close quarters battle axe, short sling, ear plugs and concussion grenades (easy to make in just about any tech level - they don't have to be pyrotechnical, basically just a pressure bomb) oh yeah a about a dozen expendable 'henchmen' Smiley

mmm the question is what time period can I draw equipment from?

My modern equipment

riot police helmet (strong plastic visor)
Digi Camo BDU's and tactical gloves
E-tool
p-90 and accompanying 5.7 pistol (high mag capacity, light ammo, compact weapon)
Good climbing harness and ropes
Crowbar

Less modern equipment:

hardened leather armor
Hobnailed boots
helmet with nose guard
tomahawk and Bowie knife
Roman Short Sword
Roman Shield
and a roman pickaxe

Ditto on what bk wrote.  I'm sure you're no fool, Mauro but just the same, please be very careful.  I've read quite a few dreadful stories about cave diving accidents.  Most of them involve the divers getting lost and running out of air.

Ahahahaha right  Grin

Don't worry Rat Man, we're planning everything really carefully. That's not our first objective for now, though: a WW2 plane was shot down in the sea near here and we're going to dive there, since one of our older members got it located on the GPS  Shocked
Hopefully we'll make some cool shots  Smiley

youŽll never get me enter that cave.

unless my kidsŽ life are in danger if I didnŽt.

Then I would put my magical protection suit and my special super duper grip shoes on.  On my head I would have my helmet with a strong ever lasting lamp. With me I also would have very very much rope,  a shining sefetyline, warm gloves. In my pockets I will have elves-bread, a self adding waterbottle, a huge choklate and some dried meat. IŽm not much for wapon so I will have a sling with magical self-seeking small bombs and my knife and axe. Just because I love them so much Smiley I donŽt care about bringing that treasure back, just want to save my kids.

Mmmmm... I think we need rope, lamps, perhaps oxygen... and then steel tools like picks, hammers, nails..... and of course a first aid kit!
Oh and a couple of blankets to warm the kids!
Any other idea?
Mauro.

Oh!
I got help! You are so kind!

Well, if they are lost we could put some speakers around and connect a computer game ( for my son) , alternative the Signaturmelodie of Big Brother ( for my daughter), they will come out sooner then the music is over ha ha.

A big lamp so they can see where they are going would be nice.

Well, food to give when they are found, they are always hungry. And something to drink.

Rope is good and warm blankets. And maybe earprotection, becuase I will be mad and yell a lot at them;  what the He"#€/ they where doing in that cave!  Wink

Don't be too rough on them: luckily some kids still know what a cave is  Smiley
