Trip: On 2/27/2010, Rod Horrocks led Roger Harris, Ken Geu, & Janice Tucker to eastern edge of the Historic Section where they found a historic specimen label from the 1890's.
Trip Report: We went to the east edge of the cave to push the PRC survey, which showed some leads on the map. We started at PRC3 and shot up into a dome that opened into a small spherical room that dead-ended. We then looked at a belly crawl at the base of the dome that was heading off the eastern edge of the map. Unfortunately, the ceiling drops to 4-5 inches before opening back up and continuing out of sight. We had to abandon the lead. We then resurveyed PRC4-5 and shot eight other shots to complete the area. We named this area, the PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF CHINA. We choose this name because Roger asked what the survey designation was when we started and we said "PRC" and he responded, "Is that "Peoples Republic of China"? We also choose this name since China had done well in the Winter Olympics last night.
