Just dig it


I made my way up to cave city to Join S&P excavations and help out at the dig in California caverns again. We had a good turn out, thirteen people showed up and while we only pulled 233 buckets of dirt out of the cave, they were removed completely (no stockpiling at the dump site for later) and an entirely new section of track was added, extending the range of digging even further into the cave. I had to chuckle when I heard one of the tours going by, someone exclaimed about the plastic skull sitting at the entrance to the dig, “is it real?” The guide answered with a straight face, “Yes, of course it’s real” then added “real plastic” as they moved off along the trail.

We had a good day of digging followed by a good dinner at good friends buffet, what more could you ask for.
