      Different people like to eat different things, but usually things that don’t mush or spoil. I tend to prefer cashews and granola bars or those chocolate peanut butter Luna bars! Jelly-bellies are also an awesome treat in a cave! I like to drink water or yellow Gatorade, but you try not to eat or drink *too* much, because you have to bring out whatever waste you make in the cave–including when nature calls!

      What do you think you’d want to bring?

      I don’t see bats nearly as much as I’d like, since we try to stay out of areas where they roost so as not to disturb them, and because we tend to push farther towards the back.
