Caving With Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania Council 11-18-18

Yes, they were at it again. This time there were two new Troops to introduce to caving. Eastern PA Council set this one up at the same time as the one in October. This trip originally had sixteen people, but one Troop backed out at the last minute. It’s a shame because they missed a very good time with these girls. Maybe they’ll come out again when they can. We have been having a tremendous amount of rain and unprecedented snowfall for this time of year. As a result the cave actually had a good bit of water in it.

I like to use this cave for beginner trips because it is stable. But I’ve never seen this much water in this cave. Parts that usually have a little sticky mud had water over the top of my thigh. I choose to avoid the lower parts of the cave. For most of the girls this was their first wild caving trip. I didn’t want to take any chances with them and I didn’t want anyone cold and miserable. But they all got very muddy, and had a blast. How could I tell? Watch the video. L…

Caving with Friends

There are some great benefits from doing what I do. One is I get to meet some great people who I get to share my passion for caves and caving with. Another is with the pictures and videos I take I get relive it over again and share my fun with other friends. The last trip was no exception. But I’m starting to have to make tough decisions. How do you edit 4 hours of fun into a few minutes of video? So, OK, here are 2 videos from that last trip.
The first was a spontaneous light saber battle in the cave.

The other is a squeeze in this cave we call the “Wishing Well”. When you get into it you’re wishing you weren’t.
