One thing I have learned over the years is, if you want a new or newish caver to go caving with you again (spouse, girlfriend, kids, etc), give them the biggest, brightest light you have. If they can't see, they will have a bad time.

Your family seems well equipped. Have a great trip!

And the boys will need a lot of light in those light-sucking, darker-than-dark lava tubes! :exploring: I've often run my primary and secondary at the same time in larger walking passages.

Have fun! Report back and post photos.

A great time! The caving was great and the company was even better.

Will have a lighting report later.
