I went in not feeling much excitement. Further into the cave I did venture. Claustrophobia robs my enjoyment As I began my scary adventure; Far from ideal stroll out in nature. I vowed "I'm done being a thrill seeker!" As I trailed other spelunkers deeper... Into the cave afraid it might cave in! Luckily, I didn't meet the grim reaper! Try again? Now that's a cardinal sin!

Thanks, Jenna:-) The last thing you wanna do when you're claustrophobic, lol. It's been over two decades and I still laugh when I look back wondering "how in the world did you get talked into doing that!?" Crazy.
