The Alaskan Caver Volume 27 No. 4 p age 7 So lu tio n to p uz zl e on p ag e 11 MAP OF WALKABOUT CA VE Walkabout Cave, on Prince of W ales Island, was discovered in July 1999 by P ete Smith and John Roe. A report and previous addition of the map were published in 2000, Vol. 20, #1 of the Alaskan Caver The older version of the map was hand drawn, with less passage than is displayed on this new update. In 2003 additional passage was discovered and map beyond what is now called the “Rite of Passage Sump”. The updated map was drawn digitally using Corel Draw. NSS CON VENTION ... continue d from pa ge 4 Sometimes a person tries to prepare for everything while planning for the NSS Convention in an unfamiliar place. And sometimes it is just not enough… I was in the Midwest roughly 5 days when the distinctive bulls-eye rash appeared on my right leg, indicating Lymes Disease from a deer tick. Unfortunately for me, an upset stomach from the medication tainted my whole convention experience. I was feeling sorry for myself until I spoke to the family from Wisconsin whose RV broke down in Milwaukee on the way to the convention. They left it on the side of the road to make arrangements and someone broke into it and stole all of their caving equipment including wetsuits, cave suits, and helmets. Good start or bad, hundr eds of people made the trip to the convention. And whatever, we got over it. My friend Jennifer Schehr and I pulled into Marengo Indiana, after dark Sunday night and couldn't believe the noise from cicadas! If you are not familiar, a cicada looks sort of like an oversized fly and buzzes louder than any noise you ever heard from an insect. Locals often forget about cicadas, as they are on a 17 year cycle. In fact, cicadas were all over the news with people rescheduling their outdoor weddings and other events because of the noise. Camping in our tents, we found that they usually quieted down at night after 2am. (see page 7)
