You know you have been caving too long when....

Run with it y'all..... :bat sticker:

You look through the JUly 2015 NSS News and you know the cover and centerfold photographers, the cartographers mapping a huge cavern in Laos, a friend counting "Lrceus in Surgener Cave", an author of an article about an old Commercial Cave in Iowa, most of the veterans in the montage, most of the photographers in the Salon Gallery, and quite a few of the Cave Chronicles contributors.

When your carbide is gone, your batteries all are spent, you're eating the granola crumbs in the bottom of your pack, barbecued bat sounds appetizing, your knee pads are shot, your neck muscles kill -- and you still are 10 hours from the cave entrance! :bananabat:

Caver1: "Just one more turn to see if it still goes."
Caver2: "Ok, it still goes."
Caver1: "I don't know if that really counts as the next turn. It was only about 80 degrees. Let's keep going till the next 'real' turn."
