Coffee time. Going to help a friend upgrade the living space he’s made available for another elderly, frail friend who had to leave his land in the country because he couldn’t live alone. No real family- cavers are his de facto family & he’s being cared for well by them in his last months. This is a strong community. This guy pretty much taught me mutli flash cave photography 25 years ago.
Here’s a wonderful blog post from an ex-Mefite about the meaning of community: http://middleclasstool.com/blog/2019/7/11/community
Cavers are my community & the closest thing I have to brothers & sisters.
Ha, putting your money where your mouth is means digging ditches in Texas caliche all morning. I hope my kidneys survive- I’m sweating out all the fluids.
We're getting a little old for that kind of work.
@oranje I severely needed the exercise! I’m home now & rehydrating.
