Caving Log


When I first went caving with DUSA in October of 2021, I was immediately hooked! At the time, an experienced caver told me that they wished they had kept a record of all of their trips, and so I started doing so from day one. You can find a simplified version of this record below, listing where I have been, with who, and for what purpose.
