, I hope I haven't misled you. David has quite a website and he and his wife, Martha, work on it together. As far as why he's "doing his dig," I dare say because--IMHO, anyway--its something that cavers do. He never used to be a caver, until he started working at Oregon Caves. He was a miner! As far as CND being closed up, several cavers have been into it, taking pictures, etc., but as David indicates it closed up one winter, I believe it was, back in 1999 or 2000; thus, like a cave that we have an MOU with, down in California, we wanted to re-open it, for we hadn't really begun to see how far that cave went. In the beginning when I was working with him a few times, I thought he was working on CND, but he calls this dig "The Mistress." So after figuring things out a little, I believe he's trying to get back into CND, but through The Mistress." Hope that makes sense. From the way CND went, I believe everyone that's worked on the project, feels that it might connect up with Oregon Caves, so that's my thought, too!I wish that website would have more history of the Cave Next Door and why David is doing his dig. I don't quite understand what he's trying to do. I always thought he was trying to reopen Cave Next Door because it had closed up somehow. But you seem to suggest that he's connecting both Cave Next Door and the nearby Oregon Caves monument.
