Today was the big day! We began to do some science.
We can’t all be in the cave at once, of course.
We’ve been here for two days now, and have figured out some of the nuances and needs of our large crew. We needed some more groceries. We’ve also set up the screen-washing area, which used up most of our water supply. A trip into Lovell was needed, and I volunteered for the task.
As the crow flies, Lovell isn’t too far. It is, nevertheless, a very long and tiring drive.
I got back to camp just in time for the cave crew to start their ascents back to the surface.
After dinner, we made use of the “Trapparatus” for a little more training in rappelling and ascending.
Tomorrow, I’ll be going into the cave. I can’t wait to see what lies below!
