into the hole again!

day five was a HUGE day in the cave. there is now enough room to sit up all the way, to work on my hands and knees, and -this is the big news- there's room to turn around and exit forward-facing instead of having to creep backward up out of the hole.

i've moved hundreds of sledloads of mined snow, but because it's spread out when i get it to the structure, you don't notice it getting all that much taller.

building the elevated walkway is slow going, because each foot of it eats hundreds of pounds of snow as its foundation, four feet high and several feet wide.
