My family is scared for me and I’m even slightly nervous. This will be my second time leaving the US and my first time to anyplace like Mexico. The longest rappel I have done is only 200 feet, hardly anything compared to what’s in Mexico. But because of these things I am sure to have an adventure.
Members of the VPI Cave Club at Virginia Tech make a trip to the deep cave pits of Mexico every winter break. Rio Choy (~210ft), Cepillo (~400ft), Huahuas (~700ft), Borbollon (~700ft), and Sótano de las Golandrinas (~1200ft) are the main destinations. We will also visit some other above ground places such as the Teotihuacan pyramids near Mexico City and the Cascadas de Tamul. I would show you pictures I’ve found online of the pits, but you don’t want spoilers do you? I don’t know how much wifi will be available to me, so I ask for your forgiveness and will update you whenever possible.
