Hey Bill :clap: you crack me up :D

Yeah that is what I do a lot - for the price of gas to/from the caves "around here" I can book a roundtrip flight on Delta (since NW used to have a hub here in Detroit and Atlanta is a hub now...tickets are cheap!) to Atlanta and then David picks me up (or I take the train thingie up to his) and then we can go up caving for about the same price as I can do it around here. Problem is, that takes planning and both of us having the same time off.

But now that I have carpool mates here it will be cheaper to stay "local" and cave. "Local" you know since Michigan is quite far from southern Indiana or Kentucky. :P

I have to agree Atlanta is p awesome and hence why I'm looking to move there later this year - if you or anyone you know is in bio/chem research down there and can hook me up with a good job let me know ;)

Gotta agree with Cavemud . . . I'd agree with T.A.G. being God's country but not Atlanta. . . I avoid Atlanta as much as possible. :yikes: I also avoid Birmingham, Chattanooga, Nashville, and Huntsvile. . . anywhere the is heavily populated. (Due to family obligations I have to go to the outskirts of B'ham and Atlanta on occassion to visit the family)

:big grin: As my closest neighbor is a little over a half mile away and I'm surrounded by over 500 acres of forest, I obviously avoid anywhere that's populated!

While that would be *nice* I do need to have a job...in science...which is usually in city...which means unless I want a crazy commute it means suburb living (not a fan of in-the-city...I am a country girl at heart even though I've never lived in the country). I am open to suggestions though :P I hear north of Atlanta about 30 min is pretty nice.

I have gone every weekend since being back at school. And have several more trips planned in the next few weekends... :banana_yay: I dont know what i would do if i couldnt cave... i think some day soon there will be a room with chairs in a circle in a church basement... in the north it would start like this:

We admitted we were powerless over our cavaholism - that our lives had become unmanageable.

Now down here in the south. it would be more like... this:

LOL well if I were closer I would totally cave more than once a month :P But it costs still a good amount of money to do it ($150 to just get there, basically) and so I'm still quite limited. If I lived closer, well then, that'd be a lot easier!

Amy,

I'll send you a shovel and some rock pursuaders and then you can have your own cave :P
I'm not scared of the dark, it's the things IN the dark that make me nervous. :)

Tell me about it. I think we spent maybe $50-$75, if that, to get down to Arkansas last weekend and our truck tends to be a gas hog. Let's not discuss how much we spent while we were IN Arkansas, but getting there & back wasn't too bad. If I'd known how cheap on gas it was going to be this time I would've been down sooner.

Amy, you totally need to pack up all your stuff & move to MO. Lots of caves here. Lots of friendly cavers, too. Besides, *I'm* here & I'm always good for amusement--even if you're laughing AT me instead of WITH me :rofl: .

I think we'd get along just fine. Having neighbors/living in a heavily populated area is vastly overrated. I live about an hour away from St. Louis *but* I live out in the country on a large amount of privately owned, mostly forested land that's bordered by privately owned, mostly forested and/or pastured land. Nobody really bothers me (except my parents who live right next door :roll: ) & that's how I like it. Don't have any neighbors within shouting distance (except the parents & the dead guy next door--his family had that section rezoned as a cemetery) & the neighbors I do have down the road are totally cool about letting me check out their land for leads...as long as it isn't deer hunting season. Some of the people across the road even have excellent river access that I can use if I want. The bordering landowners, well, we NEVER see them unless we run into them at the store or something because they're too far away AND they gave us full permission to explore the land they own back there. All they want in return is to be notified if I find anything incredibly badass (like a cave) on their property & they want us to try to stay clear of the property lines during hunting season. Works for me :woohoo: .

Oh my gosh! :rofl: wow those are huge! I've never seen fish inside a cave other than I have some vague memory of a show cave when I was little having tiny blind fish and I thought it was the coolest thing ever but they were like minnow-sized if memory serves (this is vague and i might have dreamed it at some point as a child or heard about it and think i saw it or something....I'd say I was maybe 4-5 years old?)
