...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...........
