I went caving this weekend with some friends from work. We drove to Columbia, MO and went to the Devil's Ice Box cave... four of us, a guide, and three guide trainees, so it was pretty cool. Canoed in and spent about four hours crawling around in clay and wading through water, looking at bats and cave formations and all that. I was wearing an LED headlamp which emitted a very pleasant white light... other headlamps were a bit more harsh. But the cave was beautiful. Didn't take any pictures because, well, it's in a cave, but it was fun.

I was exhausted at night so I went right to sleep before the campfire was set up for food, woke up in the morning still tired, and stiff. I'm still sore today and I have no idea why. Oh well.

I have all these gunky clothes hanging on a drying rack in my kitchen. I tried to wash them in the apartment washers twice and it didn't get all the crud out, so now I'm not sure what to do. We came out of that cave just caked with gray mud. Gratifying to be that dirty, yes, and it's not like I wore any new clothes in there, but it's a pain now that I'm trying to wash this stuff out.
