As I Sit Here In The Den.....

Postby MUD » Jan 13, 2011 12:00 pm

...and look over some of these posts, I'm sad I can't be sitting here with you discussing it in person. I'm NOT a writer! I can sit and chat with the best of them though. :big grin: Seriously, I'd love to be able to cave with and socialize with many here on the forum. I can communicate much better in person than trying to type it and show emotion. Gotta love the smilies! :laughing: Some are good with the printed word. I'm better with face to face, look ya in the eye conversation! :waving: I have met several of you since I got on board here a few years ago. I do hope to meet more of you in the future! :grin:

I want to meet you, Cavemud!

I now dub this the "sitting in the warm den after a full day of caving chatting with friends and drinking" thread. We can make up the most awesome cave ever we just visited.

I mean, that 2 mile hike through the woods up the mountain was a bit rough but man it was so worth it once we got to that entrance - waterfall pouring right out of the entrance into a 150 foot pit! Can you believe it? I've never seen anything like that.

...pretend we are having a conversation after a day of caving in the most awesome cave EVER.
So we basically make it all up. It's a fake conversation. For all of us who wish we could be caving!

...I thought it was a good idea anyway. Use your IMAGINATION!!!!

:shrug: I still don't get it. Start a new thread for the imaginary cave trip? :shrug:

I'm sure I've hijacked a thread or two in the past...or at least derailed them! :laughing:

I like this idea. What is at the bottom of the pit?

speleo - well it was rather wet down there with the water and all - but there was another hole that it poured into! We didn't have enough rope to rig it though :( However at the top of the waterfall since it was c oming out the entrance of a cave, that we went into some. THe first long ways was really just yuck - crawling in cold water, sometimes needing to slide through areas on your back to be able to breathe still. A few times we thought it would turn into a sump but we made it! All of a sudden it opened up into a huge room (compartively, at least) was maybe 50 ft dome ceiling and covered with curtains/draperies/and some stuff I think you call bacon? mmm bacon. I dunno, yuo did more wandering around in that room than I did, what did you see?

There was a low lead that opened into a meandering canyon passage about 20 io 25 feet high by 4 to 6 feet wide, nice clean washed stream passage with scalloping on the walls. After a couple hundred feet it opened into a nice dome about 40 feet high with what looked like a good lead going off the top. I wonder if anbody has climbed it to see if it goes.

I think I heard that Clive McClimberson did make it up there once, and it was just a small passage that had boulders blocking the way on. :(

Did you check out the lead over on the opposite side? If you crawled through some boulders the right way it looked like there was a passage over there!
