I just got back from Sonora, California after a fun weekend of caving and partying at the NSS Western Regional. It is an annual meeting of all the grottos on the west coast... mostly from California. I had a great time and met some really cool people. I took a bunch of pictures from our trip to Crystal Palace cave. The gallery can be found here in its entirety.
Located in the heart of the Mother Lode, we have an excellent lineup of fun caving trips planned. We're currently planning on trips to the following spots: Grapevine Gulch Caves (Grapevine, Bobcat, Porcupine, Rabbit Hole, Clutch) Volcano Caves (Santa Claus, Mushroom/Lulubel, Connie's) Rippled Natural Bridges Pinnacle Point Toppled Table Talus Crystal Palace
I drove to SF last weekend so Penelope is giving me a break and driving up this time. I just got the new EVDO wireless card from Verizon and it works great... so far i have had a signal and have been on the internet the whole trip!!! That's really spiffy if you ask me... actually i'm speaking too soon because as i type this we are driving through La Vina on our way to Madera and there is no signal here... guess i will have to wait a minute to post this!
This weekend I went to my first OTR, which happened to be the 55th annual Old Timers Reunion which is held every year in West Virginia. It is a massive party for cavers and the cavers come from all around county (and canada if not further) for it every year. Here are some of the pictures i took
i'll plan on returning next year for sure.
