Yeah, lots of people do like to dress up. If you are into it I say go for it. . . just remember the weather can be cold. . . last year was pretty warm but some years have been downright frosty.
Yeah i was gonna get a long sleeved shirt to wear under it if it was cold. I was chilly last year but the huge bonfire really helps to stay warm!!!

wendy wrote:So I need to start figuring out what caves I wanna go to during the fall cave-in. I am still outta shape, so I am looking for nice easy walking passage cave without miles of walking back up the mountain to get back to the car. I know I am asking for a lot. lol Does anyone go to Monteagle Saltpeter Cave? Any other suggestions, or anyone going anywhere and wouldn't mind me tagging along?


I am leading a trip to Long Island Saltpeter Cave for Cave-Chatters and folks from out of town. The trip will be limited to 10 people, so I have 8 openings left.
It's about an hour from the Cave-In site, mostly walking, but some crawling and a couple of breakdown climbs too. Trip will be about 3-4 hours long.
If you want to go, PM me and I'll send the release forms to you.

:popcorn: Thursday Night at the Movies :popcorn:
8PM at the Stage

1. The Hobbit (animated, for kids)
2. The Cave of Forgotten Dreams (documentary of Lascoux cave, France by Werner Herzog)
3. Sanctum (The latest cave-diving movie)

and.......

while the kids are watching the movies, parents can wander over to the Pavilion and watch Bill Stringfellow give a presentation on the Cave-In. How it got started and where does the profits go.
