Greetings from Mammoth Cave, Kentucky!

Several beers, some really hideous root beer liqueur that was left over in the fridge, and some OK Argentinian Malbec, in honour of the new pope.

Virgin booty awaits tomorrow. Yesterday we squeezed through a tight slot to emerge in continuing passage ten feet high by two to three feet wide with excellent airflow heading into the great unknown. About the only drawback is that we'll have to explore and survey while standing in mud and water. Where does that air go?

It's hell in the karst. I think I need another beer...

Ok, I'm having a few tonight.

Makers rocks and Harpoon IPA.

Happy buzz, not getting drunk though, the bud will put me to bed before I can really tie one on...

...and that's a good thing.

PtPP,

I visited Mammoth Cave when I was a kid! Isn't it the longest continuous cave system in North America, or something like that? I think it stretches for about a thousand miles.

As they say down in Kentucky, it's the longest cave system in the whole en-tar world!

Just over 400 miles of surveyed passage, and if I have my way with it tomorrow, it'll be another thousand or two thousand feet longer!

Afternoon outside today & plans for this weekend of "spring clean-up on the ranchette and getting the water system up and running.

A little red-wine from H3 Vineyards & just opened a bottle of Cline Mourvedre.

We are celebrating our one week anniversary of being back from Chilean Patagonia visiting "El Jim's" Bivy site on Largo General Carrera with our wonderful host & guide "La Angela."

So------if I post our trip report on the TFNPWDP thread----maybe it will not go to ST post oblivion as soon as a post on “the frenzied forum?”

Peter! What a question? It is an Ancient Vines 2010 Cline.

Very slight fruit bouquet----and drinks like a very slightly sweeter Merlot.

I saw it at our beloved Boise Co-op wine store------an oasis of wine in our Idaho desert------tried it----and Heidi gave two-thumbs up.

Good Friday evening! [cue the horns]

Um, trying to remember. It started out with a Beast. Then morphed with some nice Aussie Shiraz.

Trolling for wall partners for the spring season via email, phone and text. Trying to line up someone[s] for El Cap Route #50!

And what's this can of beer doing here. Again. And it's even open. Sheesh.

Merlot BUMP.

The California high country snowpack levels are at 52% of normal right now. Will the southeast side of El Cap dry up early this year?

Drip. . . . . drip.

I had the rare drinking DAY yesterday! Went up to Sonoma/Healdsburg area with my visiting niece to do tastings at two wineries. We had a great girls day out, browsing around, lunching and cheese-tasting - a perfect day!
