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.

Taking Troop 855 Caving

This past Spring I ran into Mike Rogers at the BSA NER Area 6 Phenomenon. I was there with the squeeze box promoting cave exploring to the Venturers. Mike was interested in taking his Boy Scout Troop caving.

After a while of playing tag with emails, we came up with July 1 as the day we would be taking members from Troop 855 caving in central Pennsylvania.

Troop 855 is a large Troop. The group that went was a small portion of the Troop. We’ll get the others underground at a later date. But these guys are going to take back some good stories from their day underground.

Want more proof? Here’s the video. Well, about 5 minutes of the three hour trip.
