Anyone like to dig deep holes?

This may seem like a stupid or childish question, but does anyone here love to dig deep holes by hand for no point really?

Ever since I was about 2 years old I've been magnetically attracted to shovels, digging holes, trying to make homemade underground mine-like tunnels, amongst other ground-related things. No idea why I have the obsession, but I think it's ultimately why I've decided to go into excavation/road constriction for a living.

Without further delay...
- what's the deepest hole you've ever dug by hand and why?
- have you also ever dug an underground tunnel/cave/mine?

Please post pictures of things you've "dug" by hand if possible.

When I was much younger... around 10. Me and some friends dug a "pit" about 3' wide 5.5' deep and about 7' long. We then put some metal supports over it and put an old door on top. Covered it with dirt and put a piece of ply over one end that we could move. 4 of us would go down and just hang out. No real point we just thought it was cool to be underground.
