    Andy Pitkin (he is on CDF) would probably have something. They have done tons in and around M2 Blue.

    There is another cave called Firecracker that is north of Vortex.

    Yes, that is the one I was referring to Walter. I've had some locals showing me a number of sinkholes and springs not too far from madison blue lately, many of which appear to have very little published information available.

    The one near M2 Blue was discovered by Buford Pruitt and explored by him and Mark Long in the early 90s. It is on Suwannee River Water Management District property so a permit is required to dive it. If you can find the article Buford wrote for NSS News (I think it was in about 1991 or 92) about his exploration of M2 Blue it has a sketch map of Firecracker in it.

    No, I mean Firecracker. NSS News, April 1992, p.97.
