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.

Caving With Crew 21

August 12, 2017 I took Venturing Crew 21, from Woodbury, NJ, on a cave exploring trip in central Pennsylvania. We started working on this in June and pulled it together fairly quickly.

The Crew planned a camping trip around the day of caving, which is a great way to do this if it’s too far for a day trip. You can probably get some feedback from them on where they stayed and their experience there.

 You can find more information on them on their Facebook page at https://m.facebook.com/Venturing-Crew-21-Presbyterian-Church-of-Woodbury-400192137021627/
