    Default OCDA: what is the longest u/w cave in Missouri currently?

    Anyone have an idea? Mike thinks it might be either Roubidoux or Boiling on the big piney or Welsh?

    Thanks!

    2012 – A hundred-year drought in the Ozarks finally allows conditions to improve enough to give the OCDA a chance to explore Roubidoux spring after a ten year hiatus. Visibility reaches up to 30ffw and flow is very low. The team makes project dives to set up and explore an addition 2500 feet of cave passage. Total explored distance is now 8300′, of which 7200′ of the tunnel is surveyed. The habitat is well-used, and 10 hour underwater times are commonplace.

    2014 – With improved conditions and some real long weekends the system has now been pushed out to 11,528′ at a relatively modest depth of 145′.

    Thanks for the linky Patpicos. Looks like this has the most up to date info, short of going to the MSS. Thanks!

    I thought they mentioned having pushed Roubidoux to somewhere around 14k'-15k' at the last Midwest conference, I may be off a bit.

    Almost certain that RBD is out to 16k. We should get to hear a good bit of detail from the OCDA from Tucker on Saturday.

    I gazed longingly at the entrance to Roubidoux on a recent trip to Ft Leonard Wood for my daughter's graduation from basic. No time to dive and I couldn't fit my UV26 in my carry-on.
