Bob Biddix and I have begun a book on the Snail Shell Cave System here in Tennessee. Although the system has about 10 miles of surveyed above-water passages, there have been quite a few underwater explorations in the system, too.
Neither Bob or I are cave divers, so we need your help to document the various dives that have been made in the system. Trip Reports are needed and photos, too. Anything we use will be fully credited to the contributor. I see this very much like the Trip Reports by many, many people in the recent Blue Spring Cave book.
We need any information on Snail Shell Cave and the dozen, or so OTHER caves that are part of this vast, subtderranean drainage system that goes all the way to the Stones River north of Murfreesboro.
In my mind, I see a system with 100 miles of underwater passages (or more !!!) and perhaps 10 to 20 miles of passages with air in them. The dye tests tell us that it is there.
