Hello everyone! I'm Steve from Washington. I have been caving for around 4 years and never known that a forum like this existed. I stumbled across it looking for caving rope suggestion. My love for caving started out of sheer boredom. I am a big avid of mountain biking and during the rainy months where I didn't feel like peddling I would easily become bored. I needed something to do! I heard that there were caves on Mount Saint Helen, so my friend Eric and I decided to grab some lights and drove up to Ape Caves. The feeling that you get going underground for the first time and hearing all the different sounds and seeing things you never seen before was major rush. That is when I fell in love with caving and I was hooked. I ended up doing research and realized that there were numerous caves around Mount Adam. So I spent most of my time driving around looking for caves. To date I have been in numerous caves that I lost track, Generally around the PACNW region, but will probably start venturing out and checking other caves. If anyone is in the area and want to explore or want some info, please feel free to contact me. Until then. Happy Caving!!!
