    Re: Rockin Roll CCR Cave Movie.

    I have always thought I would never want to cave dive. This video offers a window into a world of thought and intrigue. A few thoughts;

    As a biochemist, I was fascinated by the bacterial formations, and found my mind thinking of the development of 'new' life.

    The sheer size and length of these allows the minds eye to dream of new worlds and other fascinations that could otherwise, only be found in science fiction.

    The fact that the water is so clear, allows you to travel as if flying, but without the constraints that physics put on the modern aircraft. It allows exploration to question the statement that "space, the final frontier" should be replaced with something more terrestrial.

    Finally, this gives me a new respect and admiration for the modern CCR/OC cave explorer. Not as glamorous as an astronaut, but certainly as dangerous and as impressive to me!

    Dive safe, and thanks for all that you do and the time you took to put together the video so others may share in your giant strides!

    Veery nice.

    Which rebreathers were used? I think one was a prism maby.

    Do you guys use 2 scooters? One active and one dangling off the butt?

    Re: Rockin Roll CCR Cave Movie.

    The CCR portion of this video was shot on the 4th and final dive of the 2007 expedition.

    Unfortunately we could not bring the camera any further than 3400’ in because at that point our exploration depth was deeper than the Amphico housing was rated to.

    Below 370’ the cave appears to have never been dry and is a brilliant white limestone with incredible striations unlike anything I’ve ever seen

    Once again this is only a 1 chip camera strapped to a 42 amp SS scooter with a death ray 200 strapped to the bottom.

    There are still some sections of the cave that we haven’t even seen the opposing walls as of yet.
    I could go on and on….

    Hope you all enjoy and sorry for the quality…..

    I really enjoyed the video. Thanks.

    I imagine the flow coming out that small crack gives most people an ass kicking. It looked like a thick line was being installed as possibly an aid to pull on to beat the flow?

    Is the cave walled out, or is it still going? What is the max pen? Is there a map we can see?
