Any sump divers in Alabama?

Postby FW » Nov 16, 2007 11:27 am

There is a cave NE of Huntsville, "Dry Creek", that is only accessible during severe droughts, like the one now. It is in serious need of a re-survey. The existing survey was done by a French Canadian team 25 years ago, using Topofil. The original explorer believes there is an error in the existing survey, but he can't dive anymore, and wants to see a re-survey done.

Anyone interested in helping with a re-survey, contact me at sumpdiver@cavediver.net

The sump starts about 50' into the cave :-)

Are y'all game for a gear haul at Snail Shell? :grin:
