Geo-Quiz of the Week: Caves

By December 15, 2013

Follow me on:

I used to be a caver—spent a fair amount of my late teens visiting wild caves. Then I moved to a place with no caves, moved again, and many years later I'm not sure I could repeat anything I used to do underground. But I still enjoy a tour of a good show cave, especially when they lay on the science instead of the "this formation looks like Snoopy" stuff. And I can still put up a mean quiz on caves. Don't let the questions drive you BATS.

I used to LOVE caving when I was a young, slim kid with no fear.

Now that I’m a fat old fart, with the whisper of the Grim Reaper in my ears… Hell, even the ENTRANCE to the cave system I explored when I was young and stupid is now blocked to me…

You wanna know where I grew up exploring? Google “Sovereign Hill, Ballarat” to see how lucky I was…

Can we say that a person trapped in a cave is ‘inkarsterated’?
