Thanks, very informative. A lot of good information that I didn't previously know. So is Horse Farm Road Cave one of the more recently surveyed caves/is it still being surveyed? I have never heard of Horse Farm Road Cave before.

Re: Giant Pit In Russia

bennettbike wrote:Its in Russia, Its in the Permafrost, what if the permafrost is melting underneath and formed a river and it simply kept caving in... hmm interesting and i bet we will never learn anything about it.
