    Default Cave exploration with Zombie Caving

    Had another great trip up north. Went back to a big cave we found last trip and hit a few others. Great weather, 50 at night and 78 during the day. Good thunderstorm Sunday afternoon too. Spotted some deer, skunk, endangered Tiger Salamander, really cool snake and an eagle. Also heard tons of elk bugeling at night

    On Sunday we we fanned out through the forest heading towards our destination. I happened to run into a sink hole and then spotted a new cave near by. We spent some time exploring that one. After a VERY TIGHT squeeze in we were awarded with some great formations including cave bacon. We found a cave registry inside and signed it with our official cave club name Zombie Caving. It hadn't been signed for over a year so its not a very well known cave

    After a few hours we continued our hike, I happened to find another cave but it had been filled in with mud and dirt from all of the rain. We are going to go back and dig it out a little but to see if it goes anywhere

    We finally made it to the hole Jonathan spotted last trip and explored it for a ways. They reported back that they didnt spot any formations but it looked like it kept going.

    We made a quick trip back to camp for lunch then headed out to a bigger cave that we didnt explore completely last trip. After several hours inside everyone agreed it was about time to head home.

    When we were leaving Mike spotted 2 more from the road that looked interesting. We didnt have time to go in them since it was already past 4 but will check them out on another trip

    Sounds fun. I would love to do that sort of thing.

    Why do you all look upset?
    It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard...is what makes it great.

    The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

    Had a great time with you guys. Really enjoy the teamwork involved, even if it's just an encouraging voice when when you're crawling blindly, trying hard just to keep your helmet from becoming lodged.
    Poured before we got there and poured when we left. The woods were ripe with freshness.
    Kudos to Jonathan for being the rabbit, and a brave one at that.
    Awesome seeing Steve back in the caves and very cool that Laurel took right to it. (also- awesome pic on the snake!)
    Good eyes Chris for sure.
    Thanks for the help J&J.

    Michael prefers serious pose pics for caves. I had a hard time not smiling, you can barely see a smirk on my face in that pic
