TCS Spring Meeting

Posted on April 21, 2007 by Hubert

AuthorJust returned from the TCS, (Tennessee Cave Survey), meeting in Sewanee, Tennessee.  It was a good meeting followed by good fellowship at a nearby restaurant.  The presentation by Matt Niemiller on cave fish was interesting and sightly over my head.  The Talk on Nunley Cave and cave diving was very interesting and I also learned a little bit about bolting, although I am mostly a horizontal caver.  It was great to see some old friends again, I have missed the last couple of meetings due to health issues and am now looking forward to doing a little more caving.

Tennessee now has over 9,000 known caves and the goal is to have a tag stating “Land of 10,000 Caves”.  The TCS added 115 new caves last year to their survey. I understand that a lot of new cave are being found in north central Tennessee near the Kentucky border, this appears to be a neglected part of the state with plenty of caves.  

Grassy Cove Saltpeter Cave During one of my discussions with some cavers form Knoxville, I heard that rabbit hole we discovered on March 18, 1972 had been sealed off.  I am not sure of the reason, they thought that it may be due to the heavy traffic in that area.  Click here to read about the March 18th discovery.
