Slovakia and Slovenia have some excellent karst, and instead of rivers they got mountains. Definitely places to be if you like caves!

I wish. Had to settle for tourist free volcanic beaches instead. Rolling Eyes

Does anyone have the current info for the owner of Roubidoux? I'd also be interested in seeing a map, if anyone has access to one. I try not to just blindly walk into caves, even if they are well known.

By popular demand, here's the cave map of Roubidoux. As this is a long cave, the map is large. The native resolution is too big for this forum page so this is how it has to be. If you want a copy of the full resolution map pm me with your email address.

Baileybrucem, I'm sending you a pm too.

Wow, that's a long cave. How much of it is crawling or laying down pulling and pushing yourself forward? Crawling I might could handle but the belly pulling gives me the heeby jeebies.....

I would say the majority of it is either walking or hands and knees crawling/stooping. The worst part by far is the meatgrinder passage, a small stomach crawl through a few inches of water with chert cobbles and jagged walls/ceiling that turns exposed skin into hamburger.
Other than that, the cave is great! Mud Alley makes sure you are caked with peanut buttery clay and the subsequent sphincter cleans you off on the way through. What a fantastic cave!

Yeah, no thanks on that part of it then. I don't like to think I'm claustrophobic but I ain't too proud to admit it either. I can handle small spaces if I know I can get out but not something like that where I might get stuck. You can keep that stuff.....
