    That is a possibility. But I am concerned with when I return/before I jump in.



    It's actually fairly large - roughly 12 feet by 12 feet in diameter.
    Could you post a photo, and say what the nearest town to it is? Do you know if it is a new development, and if so if it appeared gradually or suddenly? It might be a sinkhole.

    Do not jump in, and do not get close to the edge. You do not know how stable the ground is, and you will not be able to tell if there is a risk of the hole widening just by looking. If you do feel the need to enter the hole, take proper safety precautions - use a harness attached by rope to something on solid ground (like a tree), have someone with you, bring something to call for help with in case of emergency, and tell someone else that where you're going and when you should be back so they can contact the emergency services if you don't come back.

    Let's just jump together in it holding each other's hands :ahee:
