Guy Stover Entrance to Binkley's Cleanup

Postby caveflower » Oct 27, 2011 6:50 am

Guy Stover cave is a newly reopend cave that was full of trash. Earlier this year members of the newly reformed ISS contected it with Binkley cave system via a nasty low air space 200' bath tub. This will afford a shorter trip to some of the far reaches of Binkley's. The cleanup will make the entrance more inviting to cave in and also has made a very happy cave owner who will let us cave there for years to come.

Here's a link to the video. Sorry it was to large to put on youtube.

Nicely done Brenda! Enjoyed the music - who was it? Have to listen to the "Wayne's lyrics" closer!

That would be my son Johnny. It won a merit award in 2008 in the cave ballad salons.
