We have knowledgeable guides who will go through caving practices, ecological practices, and safety-oriented instruction. So, if you are a newbie – no worries! Or, if you have done caving before -- it never gets old! This is going to be an AWESOME adventure.

MD: Meet at the Shady Grove Metro station. The cost includes bus transportation back and forth to WV. Exit Shady Grove Metro and meet at the Kiss & Ride on the Right Side (That's the side where you'll see the parking deck, look for the green Calleva bus).

If you meet in WV - you must be on time. The bus will not wait for you! Please let us know if you want to do this option.

CARPOOLING:
If you are not taking the group bus from the Shady Grove Metro, we encourage you to carpool – save the environment, gas, money, and make new friends! Please put up a message either in your response or at the bottom whether you have a ride, how many spots you have, and where you are leaving from. If you need a ride, please put up a post or e-mail the folks that are offering.
