Underground caves

Exploration of Dragon Cave continues, got further back into the new section but without help to remove the dirt faster, it is slow going. Some local pricks vandalized my shed and stole and number of tools and an extension cord and even went into the cave and stole two hand shovels. I told the police if I catch these people, they may not be returning home ever again since the police refuse to acknowledge my reports. So far, the hidden camera has not caught the human trespassers just a cat and a black dog with a red collar.  (Feb 23, 2018 | post #197)

Cave trip. It is confirmed the trespassers stole the spool of rope and re entered the cave to steal two hand shovels.  (Feb 18, 2018 | post #196)

Rob is referring to Ocala Caverns. Access can be arranged through the Florida Speleological Society. The police use the property for K-9 unit training so simply showing up and trying to get in will get you arrested. Another cave; White Cliffs, is located in Brick City Park and is operated by the County Parks Department. For a hefty fee you can go in with a group, they provide the equipment needed. I have discovered more new passage in my tribe's cave, I can always use help digging it out and I can give a receipt for time and labor to use on taxes.  (Feb 25, 2017 | post #192)

August 21- More dirt was removed from the clay room's west side to reveal only one passage heading off, not two or three. there could be more passages under the washed in clay. The passage heading off appears to turn to the west after five feet. There was not enough head space to crawl in and map the new passage.  (Aug 28, 2016 | post #190)

Sunday, June 19, 2016- We arrived nearly 30 minutes behind schedule, I lost the oil cap and we had to stop to get a new one. After transferring water and cinder blocks to the shed, I got geared up and it was right to work in Dragon Cave. 9 cubic feet of dirt and leaves were removed, four more feet of newly discovered passage was mapped and all the new passage is completely choked with leaves.&#65279 ;  (Jun 19, 2016 | post #188)

It was just myself and Angelo again. I removed a quarter of the clay mound and discovered continuing passage stuffed with leaves as well as dirt which is being forced back to the new area. Strange markings were found on the collapsed rock, probably natural. Found an interesting fossil, and the live end is blowing cold air indicating a larger chamber beyond the blockage.  (May 22, 2016 | post #25)

The first trip to the property for May was do work on the bathroom. A lot of wood was destroyed by termites and will be replaced with concrete. A new entrance was discovered forming near the shed, along the main path. A gasket has to be replaced on the generator before additional work can be done. The caving trip for me will take place on May 22, weather permitting.  (May 12, 2016 | post #186)
