From Pots and Pans to Potholing

After taking a break of about two years, I resumed writing my Arkansas caving blog, We Once Were Cavers. From those of you who who might enjoy an in depth visit to the strange Stygian netherworld where cavers frolic, I invite you to take a look.
Change of levels here.

(Don't forget to carry three reliable sources of light, and remember: Leave nothing but footprints. Take nothing but pictures. And keep your carbide dry.)
Our regular programming will resume soon.

Hey, I never knew you were once cavers!  I was urged to do it constantly by my geologist colleagues years and years ago but was just hopeless at wriggling through small spaces without panicking.

Rachel, my wife and I first met in part from our mutual interest in caving. (I was much more the fanatic.) She had an opportunity, during a semester abroad, to go caving with the Swansea College Caving Club, with Ogof Ffynnon Ddu the most outstanding of the lot that she visited.
Saludos, Don Cuevas

We too were cavers, our undrground adventures were West Virginia, virginia, and Pennsylvania. We attempted it in Colorado but I ended up with hypothermia, no fun.

Hola, Debinmerida,

I never caved in PA, maybe one cave in VA, several in WVA (at NSS Conventions) and never in CO. Mostly New England, MO, AR
 I encourage you to post on the We Once Were Cavers blog. I'll consider a switch over to the Disqus commenting system to make it easier.Saludos, Don Cuevas
