Dry Creek is near Huntsville, AL. It is a sump that starts a short way into a "dry" cave. Depending on the water level, it can be as short as 1500', and as long as a mile. There is over a mile of "Dry" cave beyone the sump, and not fully explored. It was mapped by a French team, using "topofil", and needs a better survey, and could easly double (or more) in size. Water levels this low only happen every 10-20 years, so we should get in there while we can. It hasn't been fully explored, and was poorly mapped with topofil.

It can be done backmount, but for hauling gear over the sand/gravel bar, sidemount would be easier.
