New Caver, long time naturalist from New Jersey

Postby cmb368 » Dec 2, 2012 6:54 pm

Hello,
My name is Chris I have been climbing on and off since High school but got serious about it 4 years ago. I have done 3 caving trips 2 in NY one of those involving a vertical element and one in PA with the Philadelphia Grotto. I am traveling to Turkey in December and it would be such a waste to not go into any caves during my stay, but I am have no idea what the status with the white nose fungus that effects our bats is over in Turkey and who could I find as a guide.

Welcome to the forum, Chris.

Good luck. There are many fine caves in Turkey, too.

I know this is a pretty old post but if you ever plan on going back to Turkey I would suggest that you contact this Turkish caver on Cave Chat with the username "Kuzgun" who has 77 posts so far on Cave Chat.
