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.

What do you mean you missed it???

A couple weeks back I was asked by the National Speleological Society to present a webinar on the NSS Youth Group Liaison Committee, and I did. You missed it??

Well, don’t worry. The NSS has it and other webinars on line for on demand so your in luck. Don’t wait too long because I don’t know how long it’s going to be there.

I’ve been asked to do another one on putting together a youth group caving trip. I have a lot of good stuff for that one. Some funny stories, too.

I’ve been thinking there are a few other youth caving topics I’d like to talk about. What would you like to hear about? Send me your suggestions and I’ll put something together.
