Gotta dress in neoprene and keep a warm sweater handy for when you surface. The wind is usually whipping through the forest and hypothermia is a real possibility when you are wet and cold in sub zero temperatures.
Rockhound’s and cavers – I realize that I have been negligent in my blogging as of late but I have been involved in other writing projects. Firstly my other travel blog – Travel and travel writing are other passions of mine – more on that later.
Anyway – cave subject – My regular caving partner and I dont stop in the winter, if anything we go into overdrive, the colder and more inhospitable the better.
The above photo was taken in an area along the edge of the Canadian shield where there are some really interesting passages that we are considering opening up – it will require a little digging and from the entrance where there is a lot of water you follow inward under an escarpment where we know there are lots of tunnels. In the one spot the passage to the side is choked by formations, I think there might be a surface grike that with a little bit of chemical persuation will give us access.
