I got stuck in the obstacle course, they had to lift the squeeze box so I could fit can't do that in real caves, huh?
Tito the Turtle wrote:Today in lab we watched that cave diving movie... uh, Sanctum! and we were supposed to make a list of good and bad caving techniques. That was a scary movie and a bold reminder to never bite off more than you can chew. Does anyone know the true story that the movie was based off of?

(not that I mind, that thing was purchased for field expeditions anyway, but if I can keep it nice it'll last longer, right?) I plan to wear my caving coveralls over it.
Squirrel Girl wrote:Yeah--buy a cheaper wetsuit!!! Well, wearing coveralls and kneepads (maybe elbow pads) might solve the problem. But I don't think I'd buy such an expensive suit for caving--or at least know that it will have a short-ish lifespan. FYI, there's always Aquaseal.
