| On a ‘regular’
cave trip I would have
the foot and handholds, but with that big drop - unseen but very much
felt - below
me, my mind was shut tight and I had tunnel vision, and thus was very
for the son-in-law’s shoulder to step onto, and the daughter’s hand to
up. As Peggy puts it,
we emerged into “balmy,
breezy darkness”, and made our way to the Pizza Hut in Cave City.
Thanks for the great meal, Ben and Peggy!
Thank you, Jim and Dave, and thanks to all of you – all of you
making that trip possible.
Upcoming events Jerry
Dixon (BGG president)
– 27, 2005. A Rockcastle Karst
Conservancy (RKC) sponsored upcoming event. GSP Work Weekend. Per
Mary Gratsch: Want to work off those Thanksgiving calories? There
will be a GSP work weekend Nov. 26 and 27 to help tidy up the preserve
and cave for the winter. Clean leaves and debris from under shelter.
Clean gutters on shelter and ticket house.
Sweep outhouses and restock toilet paper. Clear leaves from around
ticket house and cave entrance. Remove trash from back rooms of ticket
house. Go through the cave and remove any debris. Sweep and remove
trash from shower house. Clear trails. Rake leaves off Astroturf in
front of lower mondo. Sweep and clean kitchen. Clean
refrigerators/freezers, turn off for winter and prop doors open. Tools
to bring if you have them - loppers, chain saw, broom, shovel, leaf
blower, rake… If someone brings a saw, perhaps some of the rotten wood
beside the shelter could be cut small enough to fit in the dumpster.
Thanks! Hope to see you down there!!!
