David Grimes wrote:Southern Indiana people really have a unique way of pronouncing things. Most people I know from this area tend to use the incorrect word or at least sound like they do. I really do not see many writing samples so I cannot confirm that positively. We also pronounce very easy words in odd ways. For instance most people in my area pronounce Louisville, Ky. (lool-vool) even though it is obviously incorrect. I guess it's just one of those strange regional speech anomalies.

I suspect not, and it seems plausible that if they had one then they may have been able to locate the Bone entrance and avoid a rescue. Learning whether they had a map or not might go a long way towards settling this debate about whether having a map increases or decreases caving safety.
