Cave Care While Exploring

Thursday 22 February 2007 @ 10:34 pm

Cave exploration is a fun and educational activity. If you are interested in spelunking (or recreational cave exploring), however, you need to have a good grasp of the basics of cave exploration. Here are some tips that will help you safely enjoy your underground escapade:

Inform someone about your trip

You need to tell your friends or family about your caving trip. Tell them when you are leaving and when you are expected to be back and who are you with. Provide them with directions or a map to where you are going.

Don’t go alone

Even professional cavers know that it is unwise to go spelunking alone. Cave exploration is very dangerous, so you need to go with at least two people, particularly experienced spelunkers if you are new to the activity.

Civil War Bullet Collecting

Sunday 18 February 2007 @ 2:56 am

A Hobby that Honors the Past

Did you know that during the Civil War, more than 1000 different types of bullets were used?  This is one reason Civil War bullet collecting has become a popular hobby.  Another reason is that the time of the Civil War saw changes taking place in the development of firearms and ammunition.  The old round musketballs of the Revolution were being replaced with bullets in the shape we are accustomed to.  While musketballs are found on Civil War battlefields, the most common type of bullet used was the .58-caliber bullet with three rings around the base.  Many bullets found are splattered out of shape.  If you’ve always been fascinated by the Civil War and firearms, Civil War bullet collecting is a hobby you will enjoy.

With the advent of Internet buying and selling, Civil War bullets have become more collectible, and the prices have gone up quickly.  Not only this, sometimes sellers are not informed and ask more than the bullet is worth.  For these reasons, if you are just starting out in Civil War bullet collecting, you will want to buy a good price guide.  You can even find a price guide online if that works better for you.

Always Be Prepared For These Animals When Cave Exploring

Wednesday 14 February 2007 @ 12:58 am

The dark and damp chambers of a cave serve as home to a number of creatures that can be both creepy and crawly. Some animals are accustomed to go inside caves just to rest or hibernate; while others are true blue dwellers that can’t survive outside the caves. No matter how big a cave is, it is a universe to countless animals that can be delicate or dangerous, minuscule or gargantuan.

Getting into caves could be the ultimate adventure for you. But such activity can present dangers that lurk in the dark. Living creatures can suddenly catch you off guard and bring you an itch or, worse, death. So be prepared for these animals when cave exploring.

Bats dwell inside caves to hide from the light of day. A little disturbance can surely awaken them and before you know it, hundreds or thousands of panic-stricken bats will be flying your way and you can easily get caught in the rush. With razor sharp teeth and claws, bats can rip your cave apparel or your skin. If this happens, watch your eyes or you will live in darkness forever.
