With last week’s question garnering such an unexpected response, we thought that it would be fun to ask another question to gauge our readership.

After much though, we decided on the fun question of “How many caves have you visited?” Answer the poll and let us know.

How many caves have you visited?

50 or Less 34% (43 Votes)

Over 1000 10% (12 Votes)

  Total Voters: 126

Last Week’s Results

Last week’s poll was nearly unanimous, with 95% of folks answering that they were trained in SRT. That’s pretty impressive seeing as we had only been expecting somewhere around 60%. The calibre of our readers continues to amaze us.

Thanks everyone for your answers!

    Consider breaking that 50 – 250 category down into smaller chunks, as that’s a pretty large jump. The categories for this quiz ought to be logarithmic, like the volume knob on a stereo. The lowest category should be *low* to indicate a novice; does it make sense to lump someone who has visited 50 caves with someone who has just visited their first? How about starting with < 10?

      This is always a difficult issue. Perhaps 50 or less is a bit large to start, but all to often we have been amazed at polls with the majority of answers being at the higher end of the spectrum. We’ll try to do better next week.

    I like the wide number scale, because I’ve never been able to force myself to keep track. I tend to go to the same 10 or so caves over and over, and then I force myself to get some variety. I really should count.

    Took a guess. Could be more, certainly not less. Have to agree that they are large jumps, but in reality, I only know a couple of cavers that actually keep a log/dairy.
