We went back to Hardins Cave this past Wednesday night for our monthly grotto trip. We recruited people from the Earth Day Festival in Nashville last weekend, and we had 4 or 5 people show up because of that. We had 17 people on the trip, and several of them were first time cavers, including a 5 year old and 7 year old that did pretty well.
I've lost about 10 lbs since last month when I went, plus I've been exercising more, so this time it was easier for me. We went back to the rope climb-up and then turned around, which is our usual route. Not a bad trip and everyone seemed to have fun.
