    Video: Dead Horse Cave Trip

    This is the first time out in the Blackbird in the Snow. I am out with my Scout Troop in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. We caved in the Dead Horse Cave, the largest Lava tube cave in North America.
    It was a great weekend. The Blackbird did fantastic, two great toasty nights!

    Embedding is done by putting everything right of the equal (=) sign in the original Youtube link, between the two bracketed "YOUTUBE's" created when you click on the Youtube logo in the menu above the post frame.

    In this case "63-H3Ta3S4w" (without the ") between []'ed YOUTUBE and /YOUTUBE.

    Great looking trip ... glad you fellers are out there teaching those kids the joy of backpacking!

    Action packed adventure. Looks like a very active troop.
    Tortoise never for a moment stopped, but went on with a slow but steady pace straight to the end of the course.
