Dig outside the cave, maybe not right at the entrance but pretty close. I dug a killer shelter and the best stuff was in the flat area around the entrance. Walk out of the cave and look down for a nice chill spot. *****s probably chilled in the cave at night for protection, nice day your out on the lawn cooking and chipping. Good luck
...any ideas on how to approach digging this shelter is much appreciated.
Excellent input from Diggr & G-twn...I like the OUTSIDE best for small caves..
So another thought to expand on your stated next visit. a "trench" is the fastest way to get a look at the possibilites, as narrow as possible, like 15 inches.
AND lastly, be very aware you where the dug dirt goes...Get it well out of the way of possible / probable future digging..
that'll be my game plan for sure...im gonna try and go back out there tomorrow and see what i can scratch up, will post afterwards for sure, thanks yall... i heard yall are gettin some good rain back down in Texas, bet that flint is a shinning in the sun...........
