We call ourselves cave explorers, speleological, mountaineering into discovered depths and length.
The deepest in N. America was this decade found inside Canada, Our longest, exceeding 400 miles,
remains under Kentucky. We've had 18 Congresses of Speloology establishing accord with our
planet authorities, regional interests, and more. We are not all loyal to one person or a political
body. For science what we do crosses lines drawn for political purposes. Like early star gazers
our reversed direction of interest is subject to ideological threats and persecution. But we're still
going where most people do not. Enjoy Mount Everest but that's just for high rollers. How's it
been lately for everybody else ? We who do actual adventuring like to keep up in social media.
