Did you know that there are thousands of caves on the east coast? Many of them here in NY. Geologists and casual explorers have been finding, mapping and studying them for years.
These guys (yes, mostly guys) tend to protect access to these caves through private purchases and other regulations. The primary reason is for our safety. If you get in a cave unprepared and are unable to get back out, you can be rescued, but it's very expensive. So, the fewer people know about these caves, the fewer accidents and fewer resources dedicated to rescues. Those resources can then be invested into discovery, acquisitions and science. That doesn't exclude you; it just makes it much harder to participate in this amazing activity, even if you know you can handle it.
Come and explore one of the longer caves in NY with us. It's not quite a mile and there's not a lot of crawling involved. This invite is for beginners who feel ready to push themselves past their comfort zones and step up their outdoorsy game.
We'll do a proper safety briefing, a discussion about the geology of the cave and explore it safely and responsibly. We promise that after this trip, you'll have the best outdoor adventure story at work.
