Well . . . It rained . . . and rained . . . and rained. It was cold and very muddy. My camper leaked. A waterfall formed in the cliffs behind my camp and a wide river began to run through my camp. Every piece of gear I brought got wet and muddy.
Because of the nature of the caves and the archaeology, we were able to do very little work in the caves. I worked with a crew that dug over 200 test pits and found only a handfull of artifacts.
And while I was freezing in the wet, muddy Arkansas rain it seems like a lot happened here. I can't possibly catch up with all the posts I missed. Apparently in the absense of my stablizing presence, the site nearly self-destructed. Anyone want to offer a capsulized version of what's been going on? Or direct me to the key threads?
