Springfield Cub Scouts (and Parents) Get Muddy at The Lost Sea

Cub Scout Pack 434, including Victor Chiles, Andrew Mills, Kolby Rothbard and Jack Fiscella, spent part of their weekend caving at The Lost Sea caverns in Sweetwater, Tennessee. One of the highlights of the trip was a boat ride on the 4 acre underground lake, which is the largest in the country. The lake is stocked with some of the largest Rainbow trout you've ever seen.
Kudos go out to Nancy Mills, who not only crawled through some of the tightest crevices of the cavern with Andrew and Talley, but was a trooper as she joined the boys - and girls - for a camp out in the cave (keep in mind there was no running water).
-And a big pat on the back to Trey Chiles, who selflessly skipped watching the Nationwide race at Daytona, to go spelunking with Victor and Macon (he did record it).-
A great time was had by all. No injuries to report!
