1st Trip: On 1/12/2000, Rod Horrocks led Steve Baldwin and Sammi Langendorf to the Overland Trail in the Historic Section to push a lead Steve had discovered during the Rachel Cox rescue in 1989.
Trip Report: We went to the Overland Trail to find a room that Steve Baldwin had found during the 1989 Rachel Cox rescue. We started surveying at UIA5 at a bellycrawl that had seen little traffic and was nearly virgin. This started as a sandy calcite floor that turned into a tall fissure passage that followed a fault and then went into a low, wide bedding plane crawl with gypsum sand floors. We found a dome in a large walking canyon we named Lycos Hall, which opened into a 40-foot diameter virgin upper level passage that we named Yahoo, which we didn't have time to survey. We found lots of frostwork and moonmilk in the canyon and left a dozen leads for a return trip. We surveyed 419 feet, using the YH1-25 survey designation. We closed a loop with AU1, a short side passage near the Cairn Room along the Overland Trail that was surveyed back in 1970.
