    Another transit day just moving East across the country. About 4 1/2hrs today thru more cattle country the weather is starting to come in with the edge of Hurricane Norbert reaching over to where we are. Driving down the highway the car radio and the kids electronic gear started going funny, then we knew why the next road sign we saw was for Roswell,New Mexico the home of the UFO. I ...

    ... 8 on **** again. Weight ever gaining. We arrive at Carlsbad caverns around 1pm, after time change (hour back). The cave is 3 mile long and 800 ft deep. We all set off as group but soon tail off on our own pace. Capturing photos was difficult task due to the low light conditions, but fiddling around with manual setting some photos came out. Stalactites, stalagmites and ...

The caverns are over 750 below the surface and, yes, we walked down that far (but took a 1 minute elevator ride up at the end!). There are over 100 miles of caves, but there are only a few open to the public. The Big Room (and Natural Entrance) ...

    ... the last minute feeling inspired we decided to hike back out the Natural Entrance. The 800ft 1.5 mile climb out was a lot tougher than coming down, but with umbrella and knife in hand we made it out. We truly are rockstar hikers now.

    Back at the campsite we rewarded ourselves with a dinner of BBQ pork and beef. Talking to the owners we discovered that for two months in the summer here they are infested with tarantulas. I'm pleased we came here in the winter.

    ... strange to go down there; I followed GŁnter as he disappeared behind the many turns, trying not to lose the faint light from his headlamp ahead of me. If you sit in a cave, turn the lamps off and don't make a sound, it is so totally dark and quiet – hard to put into words.

    Forget all the wellness retreats where you get kneaded, stretched, heated and cooled, just lock the poor stressed people down into a cave and turn the lights ...
