Caving with Dave for His Birthday

On February 22, 2002 David Collings met up with some of his friends to survey caves in Southwest Virginia for his 40th Birthday...

The following is their story...


  • All in All this was a very productive extended weekend.
  • We completed the surveys of Cribb, Wrights, Trooper Said, Little Cedar and Triple X Caves, explored Mountain Cave and opened another great blowing lead, found eight new caves, and had a really good time.
  • Thanks to the participants: Brad Blase, Russ Carter, Dave Collings, Mike Ficco, Phil Lucas, Dave Socky, and Ben Schwartz
  • Thanks to Brad and Phil for the Photos
