Blue Spring Cave, TN Mapbook available

"Jason Richard's map books can now be ordered. He has a commitment of fifty books that the publisher required. The cost is ninety dollars per book and this charge is covering Jason's expenses and that's all. Kind of like the mouse: "I don't want any cheese, just want to get out of the trap". He has devoted a lot of time and energy to this endeavor and those that have visited Blue Spring over the years would do well to purchase a book from him if it doesn't create any financial hardship. Thanks."

Here's a link to purchase:

and some of the info there:

Blue Spring Cave, White County, Tennessee

"The 164 page Blue Spring Cave map is a compilation of more than 20 years of survey trips into the cave by hundreds of surveyors, and almost three years of drawing by one cartographer to bring the map to print. The entire map, to include the underwater passages, are rendered at one inch = 50 feet, showing all of the details shown on the original sketches. All of the survey stations and attached notes, where appropriate, are included from the original sketches, making the book an essential component for continuing exploration and survey in the longest cave in Tennessee. The book is in 11 inch x 17 inch format with extra thick satin faced pages, making each page durable and easy to read, The book is bound with an attractive and durable formed wire binding, and features an attractive card stock cover designed by Christina Richards, with photos by Bob Biddix and Clinton Elmore."

There was a copy of this book on display at the 2014 NSS Convention last month and it was awesome. I've already ordered my copy. It is over-sized, which is nice. It gives better quality maps.

Any fan of Blue Spring Cave should have a copy of this Map Book.

I just got an email notice today that said the funding goal had been met. So, hopefully the books will be mailed out soon.

I think it was a limited edition printing and was not available or printed until all the books were sold. I have one and will consider selling it after I
look it over.
