Join the Blue Ridge Explorers Club on a caving adventure. Sunday, March 26th from 12-5pm (or there about). Limited to 10 people. Must be relatively fit and comfortable in dark, tight spaces. Appropriate attire a must. Location to be determined based on attendees but will be in Wythe County.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the list.
Participants should bring the following:
A complete change of clothes, including shoes for after-cave wear
A large garbage bag (for dirty cave clothes)
Four AAA batteries
Lug-soled shoes/boots are a requirement as well. Flip flops,sandals, tennis shoes and anything with a smooth sole can be a danger due to the muddy and slippery conditions. (Falls are the number cause of injury in caves) We'll provide helmets for the participants.
Participants should dress warmly and in layers. Long johns under blue jeans or coveralls and a long sleeved shirt would be most appropriate. cave temperatures will be in the mid-50s and the participants will get wet.
Participants will spend about half the time walking and half the time crawling on hands and knees and/or on their bellies. Because of that, we recommend gloves and knee pads but those certainly aren't requirements.
