I swapped shifts with another doc so I've got the entire weekend free! :bananabat:

Just downloaded my registration, will drop it in the mail.

I'm looking for a vertical trip, not too tight please.

I'm getting WAY too familiar with the eastbound drive down I-70 from Kansas to go caving... :big grin:

Since I may not make it to Indiana Cave Capers this will likely be my major "get-together caving trip" this year.

Well since it doesn't look like I'll make it to CA this year to go caving, I am fairly sure now I'll be coming to see you guys. Just need to check my days off at work, I think I already have most of these days off already. Just downloaded my registration form, just need to figure out logistics before I comment.

I'm planning on attending, and Wendy, I owe you a beer :beer30: It's for waiting on my sorry :nannabooboo: to get out of Breathing Hole during convention. I won't take no for answer. :thanks:
