transplanted NY caver

Postby geokaver22 » Dec 29, 2010 12:06 pm

Hey everyone!

I took a caving class in college a couple years ago...best thing I've ever done - I'm hooked! We did a lot of trips in the Catskill/Shawangunk/Hudson Valley area of New York. However, I just recently moved to the Portsmouth, NH area for school and the caving here seems to be non-existent. In fact, I've found myself spending more than one long weekend driving 5 hours back to NY to get my fix.

Hi, Kate,

Welcome!

Yep, no caves in Portsmouth, NH :sad:

Your NY caving didn't mention some of the best areas in Albany and Schoharie Counties. Check out the Northeastern Cave Conservancy at http://www.necaveconservancy.org. Some of the caves are open through the winter. There are also some good caves in western Mass. and southern Vermont - not too far for a weekend jaunt; and the Adirondacks have some, but farther away.

You might also head up the coast for some sea caves - a different sort of critter, but nonetheless interesting.

Check the Vermont Cavers Association website at http://www.vermontcavers.org and the Boston Grotto at http://bostongrotto.org/ for trips and related events.
