>>Continue on by asking yourself WHY does the WKKP hold all the world records for the most demanding of diving and with ZERO fatality rate in the last (ten?) years. Forget the Parker
Turner freak cave in that couldn't have been helped, DIR or not.
I'm curious, according to the WKPP's website itself, more specifically the history of the WKPP found at http://www.wkpp.org/chrono.htm, it states quite specifically that August 1993, "Bill Gavin, Lamar English and Sherwood Schile carried out an 8,000 ft./2,440 meter penetration upstream in Cheryl Sink looking for the passage to Big Dismal. On their return Schile began having problems in the Short-Cut Restriction and died there from undetermined causes."
So why do you claim that the WKPP has had no deaths during dives, when their website freely admits two?
-- Hopefully that was put politely enough.
