Trying to find the infamous funnel…

If you’re familiar with cave diving, you know that sites under active exploration are taboo to talk about.  While that’s nice if you’re the one exploring it, it makes it incredibly difficult to find various sites if you hear rumors of them and want to follow up to see what all the fuss is about.  That was the case with the site Andreas and I set out to find, we’ll call it “the funnel” in this blog entry to avoid giving the real name away.  We had been told about it, and finally had a general idea of where it was located.  After spending almost 5 hours driving around the forest, we finally found an access road that allowed us to access the riverbank near the GPS coordinates we had.  Because of how late it was, we didn’t have time to dive this site.

Along the drive, we found several sinkholes which we marked on our GPS to look out for next time.

    These pictures are not all from the same site are they? A few look familiar to a SM only cave? Send me a message on fb if you want.

    Most of these sites are from twin river state forest. I honestly don’t know the name of any of them. The cave we were after is over 3 miles long, an easy scooter dive, and we didn’t find it on this trip…the rest of these pics we didn’t even get in the water for since we had a specific site in mind and only had drysuits.
