Day 652: up and down mining

Day 652:

One of the biggest challenges I face when chasing a seam is deciding whether to chase it up or chase it down.

Usually I go up to the top of it and then chase it down… but when chasing it up means chasing it to a cave entrance where the monsters like to hang out, that’s not always the best-sounding idea.

Anyway, I’ve got a pretty nasty black eye where a zombie punched me in the face earlier, and I’m thinking I might wall off this particular surprise cave entrance and dig down for a bit.
