    As a Child More

    I explored caves that were on a beach in County Donegal, each summer, with my parents, my eldest brother and his wife.  They were Maghera Caves and they were a few miles outside the town that my family would stay in each year.  The beach itself was always...

    The Allegory of the Cave

    I've Explored A Cave... Or Two, Or Three...

    I've been a caver since 1973, although I've had spells of doing little caving for quite a time, for one reason or another. I'm planning to be caving again this coming weekend, in Yorkshire. I've had the unique experience of helping to discover "new" caves in the UK and in Norway...

    Many

    Tomorrow morning, I am going with a group to explore a cave which we need full wetsuits for. It is a very wet cave, and it is recommended we bring life jackets too just because the bulk of it is sooooo deep.

    Getting There Is Half the Adventure

    Went to one yesterday, had to be five miles from the nearest paved road, seven dry creek beds, and no telling how many "are you sure the truck can do that?" When we got there, we saw some of the most incredible formations, ribbons of bacon, crystalizations, rim stone...

    Caves

    I went to this dam in San Antonio and this guy showed us a neat little cave.  Inside it we found a note that said, "Welcome Home". Also went to Carlsbad Caverns when I was 13.  It was actually a little bit boring.  Cool at first, but not interesting...

    Cave Man

    ...and Saw the Monkey!

    No, get your mind out of the gutter.  This isn't a naughty story. It really wasn't exploring a cave, since many others had been in it, but it was new to us, and we were unguided.  It was a cave in a state park; a straight shot in one side of a mountain and out the...
