I went to Cumberland Caverns this past weekend with Troop 3. “It don’t get no better than this!” was the mantra our guide Kevin a.k.a Cavin’ would shout when we made it through a particularly tight passage. The yellow box below was a training box full of about 150 feet of crawl space the boys practiced in while we were waiting on our guide.
We started with the walking tour which gave us some of the history of the cave and there was a light show set to music. Then we began the wild tour which involved getting dirty and crawling through tight spaces as you can see below. We had the cave all to ourselves and slept on the ground. The next morning after breakfast, we started another wild historical tour that had ladders, mud, and plenty of crawling.
We had a great time and I look forward to going back again sometime.
