It’s an exciting morning, though, as I prepare to leave to meet up with my adopted parents so we can go caving this weekend. *cue happy dance* Ever since I first stepped foot inside a real cave a little over two years ago I’ve been an enthusiastic caving fangirl.
So far I haven’t found anything that quite compares to the knowledge that I’m hundreds of feet underground, belly-crawling through tight passageways and relying totally on our flashlights to be able to see.
At the halfway point the guide makes everyone turn off their lights for a few seconds so people can experience what it’s like to be in utter darkness. I always wish that we could leave our lights off for a little bit longer so I can really soak it in.
This is my third year to do the caving adventure, and while I have to admit that I’m a little bit freaked out at the thought of going through those tight spots again (I can’t think about it too long or else panic starts to build), I’m mostly a little ball of happiness.
Caving is one of the events that I’ve looked forward to most this year and I’m thrilled that we’ve been able to work it out so I can go.
I hope to see some of y’all there!
