Recent Trip Reports & March 3 Trip

Greetings, cavers!

Thanks to the earlier persistence of the Davidson Dig participants in 2006, 2011, and most recently by Rand Heazlitt and Tim McLain, possibly the largest-volume room yet found under the sinkhole plain south of Corydon was discovered in Davidson Cave last Friday by the duo. Here is a link to the report by Tim: http://mypage.iu.edu/~deverton/Binkley/Davidson2-23_24-12.pdf.

18 Feb 2012 Binkley Cave Trip Report and 2-25 Trip

Greetings, cavers!

First of all, Tray Heinke has added to the Feb 11 trip report, which was the day we established that Binkley and Blowing Hole are one and the same. Here is a link to that report:

I’ll continue to add the stories of participants as they get them to me; right now the document is 14 pages long and will hopefully continue to grow.

Binkley & Blowing Hole Connection Trip Report

Greetings, cavers! Thanks to each of you who earlier contacted me to express connection congratulations; I really appreciate that. This is the last of two messages regarding this matter that I’ll be sending as widely distributed as I did. If you wish to be added to the regular Binkley e-mail list, please inform me and I will gladly do so.

February 11 Cave Trip Reminder

Greetings, cavers!

Last Saturday, the weather forecast of possibly heavy rainfall amounts nixed the planned survey and push trip into Binkley Cave, but a trip was made instead into what we’ve been calling Boone Blow Hole. Unfortunately no new passage was found, although the currently-short cave was surveyed. Nobody has yet completed a trip report, but I’ll make an announcement if I get one later.

Another January 21 Trip Report & Invitation to Survey a Kentucky Cave

Unusual of me to have two messages in one week, but here are two items of interest.

1. Brad Barcom completed (in his always-entertaining fashion) a trip report of last Saturday’s trip to Binkley Cave; here is the link: http://mypage.iu.edu/~deverton/Binkley/Binkley1-21-12.pdf
