    Default Russell Cave and Montague Cave connected!

    The connection dive today was a success- 2006 feet long in 7 foot visibility. Took longer (53 minutes) to lay the line then it did to survey it. (47 minutes) The gear was a KISS Sidewinder and SM 50s, and Light monkey lights, reels and heated vest (thank god.)

    You can read the details and see some sweet pics over here:

    Congrats Jason! 2000' in 7' of visibility... I need your help on some of my projects! You must use echolocation.

    Good work Jason. Did you have some help getting gear to the sump?

    Yes, this was a holiday weekend at the Abode, so there were plenty to chose from.

    Yes, we went over there on Saturday, with the plan to finish the sketch, but Chrissy was not able to get in the entrance. The flow was pretty high, which was a little strange, but the vis was 8-9.

    I don't even try to get in, if the flow over the spillway is over a couple of inches. FWIW, I have seen it 6 feet over the spillway, and the color of chocolate milk. I assume you aborted too?
