  Posing with Tucker and the sign Tucker takes off ahead of Laura Bob digs his hole The other Bob digs his hole. Will they meet? Break-through - the 2 caves meet!

  Digging out the interior takes a while to move the blocks all the way outside. Easier with 2 people. Tall enough inside to sit upright! Lots of room inside, with an alcove at the left

  This entrace hole is HUGE, but we plan to use blocks from digging out the inside to make the hole smaller Laura's 6 feet up from the bottom of the pit It got a lot colder inside when the caves were joined and the wind could blow through the two entrances. We'd block off one of them to make it warmer, but it was faster to dig with two.
