    Last weekend, at 163' Conley Pit in middle Tennessee, a few reprobates managed to get on rope and pull off a rainy day bounce.

    Fun trip, as always. O'l Kevin looks like a rock star with all that S&M gear on.

    We'll be doing it again April 21-23 on the SRT class. Stephens Gap is on the list this time.

    Folks don't want to miss this one. Stephen's Gap is an iconic TAG cave, and my understanding is that the class will get to experience multiple scenarios and evolutions at the SG Preserve.

    It's featured on the cover of Caves and Karst of the USA.

    Here's a pic of me (right) and the S&M rock star (left) on the pedestal.

    Wait. Is there a difference between a rock star with S&M gear and an S&M rock star? I may owe someone an apology.

    We will finish up the class Sunday morning then it will be optional for the students to go with us to the gap as a group outing. Stephens Gap is not part of the actual class though.

    Roger that. I hope folks join in. I want to bounce Pipeside and maybe try the wet route with 9mm.

    I am rocking the S&M gear! #woll tyde. PS, I have squinty eyes because it was overcast and bright out. I know how Mud feels now.
