This was supposed to be our annual bat census trip where we count bats from the Lunch Room to the Mountain Room. One of the participants dropped out very early Saturday morning, leaving us no time to recruit a replacement.read more
Fredericks, a local family that built our new road, and Danny
Schupbach, a gentleman who provided great assistant during the
construction of the shaft, and two of his friends saw Carroll for the
first time. They made their trip to Thunder Falls, the Carroll
Passage and Angel Pool Passage without a problem. They enjoyed their
trip and were very complementary of our effort. Three other locals
that had planned to participate were not able to make it this year.read more

The complete paper is attached below as a PDF file. It is 130 pages of pretty dense reading! read more
Participants (riding with Rick)
We finished anchoring the demo/practice cable to the silo floor and finished the installation of a waterproof LED light in the basement that was started on the prior work day. We got started on the installation of a new LED fixture in the silo. We repaired the roof of the school by replacing the torn section of the rubber roofing with a new 11’ by 12’ section of EPDM rubber. Jamie delivered a plaque made to honor Chris Danuser, Greg Fry and Ron Jaeger. We moved the picnic table and a steel wood rack to the Silo. The big effort was prepping the sky crapper for a move across the road to our land north of the silo. After cross bracing the sky crapper Greg Fry picked it up with his tractor and moved it to its new home. As we finished cleaning up and loading up Jay led Nick down the ladder for his first view of Carroll Cave. read more
