Into the Void

Apologies for making a blog post almost solely about myself. But today, I went into The Void. At least part of me did. The archaeologists decided that they needed better pictures and better (non-Blair Witch style) video. I immediately volunteered. Unfortunately, the opening is somewhat awkward, so it was nearly impossible to angle myself well enough to take good shots, but the archaeologists were happy. As soon as I get copies of the pictures of the interior that I took, I'll post them. In the meantime, here's what we went through today.

Just to refresh your memory, this is what the entrance to The Void looks like. We did break away two more bricks, just to give me a little more wiggle room.

Testing the set up and making sure that both the camera and I will fit into the opening.
