the total surveyed length to 90,736.6 ft (17.18 miles) and estimated passage length of 83,957.3 ft (15.90 miles). We have now surpassed Mystery Cave for third place on the Missouri cave length list
We always figured that during high flows the Forevers sumped, but we never imagined that Thunder River could back up from the Lake

Restoration Project Trip Report

Participants: Bill Gee (Trip Leader)
Time in: 10:00am

A few weeks before this trip I received a call from Ron Lather. He had promised Bill Pfantz he would lead a trip to Convention Hall with the purpose of checking out some possible ancient inscriptions. Ron was unable to do the trip and asked if I would lead it. I agreed and started organizing.
We have had a ball with this radio and project. The ONLY regret is that Mike is not here saying these things.
