Monday Memories

Monday Memories: Did I ever tell you about The Time I Spent The Night In A Cave

I found this idea on another website and thought I would use it on my blog today. . Doing a memory sounds like fun. Even though I am a little late getting it in since the clock says it is really Tuesday already I thought it might be fun so I am going to give it a try.

About ten years ago when I was still married to my ex, I spent the night in a cave with 100 kids. Yep you read it right. A Cave! This is how it happened. My ex was teaching NJROTC at the time in Knoxville TN. Part of the job was taking the kids on field trips. The best I remember this trip was probably to learn survival. I am sure though that I am the only one who worried if I would survive. Our group actually only consisted of about 20 kids, but we had both boys and girls. We went toThe Lost Sea Which is a cavern in Sweetwater, Tennessee. It is a beautiful cave, and is listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's largest underground lake. We took what is called "The Wild Tour" which took us into parts of the cave that is not open to the general public. It had very narrow passage ways and tiny openings. It was a lot of fun, and the best part was we spent the night. The cave itself was very muddy and damp. It wouldn't have been so bad, but the night that we were there so were the boy scouts. Yep, about 100 of them for a jamboreee. Here we were with about 8 high school girls and the rest was boys. Needless to say I did not get any sleep that night.

I once spent a night disrupting a rendezvous between 2 determined 14 year olds on a 4-H trip. The worst part was when they were pretending that they were just up watching TV and so I pretended to be excited about CHIPS at 2:00 AM also just to annoy them into obedience. That was the longest hour of my life and good sleep time that I'm never getting back!

We should go camping, and make some memories. Although Bruce said he would not go camping unless it was in a well stocked camper with elecricity and tv. Men, humph.
