When I got back to the squeeze I could barely talk fast enough to let B know everything I had discovered. As for the reference to the small opening in the cave, there is a saying among cavers: "If it blows, it goes". I seemed to get tired a little quicker on the way out. Once we reached the entrance to Floyd’s Tomb, however, we were once again ready to blaze the trail leading to an undiscovered part of the cave. The rumbling had ceased, too. Still, I had B tie webbing to my feet, just in case he had to pull me out. I was getting all kinds of phone calls from people but I just let the answering machine take the calls.

After several futile moments, the caver turns his head at a sound- perhaps another caver- only to have the other senses return, and then heighten. My daily routine was mechanical and empty. Once the caver gets down to the 6X6 room he can take a break under a ledge while the rest of the party comes down. The first resembled several chunks of grated cheese tied together on one end, with the rest of the “cheese” just flopping down.

As a rule, I get my pictures put onto disc at the time of developing so I don't have to scan them later. I want to update everyone as to my condition, my plans for the cave, and the events of the past few weeks. My head was still throbbing and the squeeze looked tighter than ever.

He said that he swore he just heard a strange noise emanating from the hole. Break times are used to chat momentarily about whatever topic pops into mind.

The second battery lasted a little longer because we hammered and chiseled a little more often and a little longer each time. He agreed. Just a short drive from just about anywhere in the country is a cave waiting to be explored. I took an oath. I chucked it on the ground and searched my pack for another one.

I now see why ITS SO FUCKING LONG, DAMN Wow Hopefully I can get through this in the next couple of weeks. Then something bizarre happened that I can’t quite explain. B went to the hole and yelled into it. The rock could not have moved by itself. I’d only been out of the house a few times in the last two weeks. We really had to push on the drill, and it was still slow progress. Then was not the time, though. My dreams seemed so real I had a hard time telling if I was awake or not.

(This is the first time in three weeks that I have heard any reference to Floyds Tomb. Getting back into the darkness of the cave brought back the memories of the night before. There was no way I was going to crawl back in to release it so I decided to just forget the rope and get my harness on and get out of the cave. B would give us two hours to return. The first time it looked like someone was home, but no one answered the door. I took a better camera into the cave on one or two of the trips. B helped me as I wiggled my upper body out of the passage. I will try to finish the site as soon as possible. That was difficult work. It almost seemed out of place in the jagged atmosphere of a cave. I also made a device to hold my drill that attached to our pipe.
