Your caving and TSS
TSS is an
organization of cavers, volunteering their time and money for
caving. But we can't do it all alone. TSS needs you to actively
contribute your trip reports, maps, and copies of survey notes.
Caving is one way of literally making it into the record books, but
you need to record your data to be remembered and so others can
enjoy, benefit, and learn from your efforts. The main TSS files are
in Austin and are available for use by conservation-minded folks who
indicate that they intend to contribute new information to the
files. Please call or send information to TSS Office Manager Ron
