Honey Creek Tank Hauls 2015

Location: Honey Creek Cave

Join this massive effort to further exploration in the longest cave in Texas on January 24th and January 31st, 2015. We need your help to haul dive gear and camping gear for cave divers Jean Krejca, James C Brown, David Moore and Matt Turner as they continue to explore the furthest reaches of the cave.

I am coordinating volunteers so please message me off list with what dates you can come. I am trying to recruit 50-60 people for each weekend. Come for one weekend or both!

Honey Creek Cave is the longest cave in Texas at over 20 miles long. The legendary Tank Haul trip includes walking, salamandering, crawling, and "The Mud and The Crud". The trip is challenging but very fun. Some people have done the trip in and out in as few as 4 hours, others take their time and take up to 12 hours. Average pace takes 8-10 hours round trip.

GEAR: Honey Creek Cave is a water cave and you will need a wetsuit and harness with d-ring to be lowered on cable down a 145ft man-made shaft. Bring a helmet and small pack for storing personal gear like lights, batteries plenty of water and snacks. I recommend wearing sturdy lace-up shoes, knee pads, elbow pads, and gloves. I also recommend storing supplies in a watertight container like a nalgene bottle. The packs of group gear shouldn't weigh more than 30 pounds.
