Ohio Caverns

Ohio Caverns is one of Ohio's most popular tourist attractions. The caverns remain a steady 54 degrees year round featuring some of the most unique formations in America.  Hidden beneath the rolling farmland and wooded countryside of Champaign County, the caverns were formed thousands of years ago when an underground river cut through ancient limestone and created vast rooms and passageways that later filled with countless crystal stalactites, stalagmites and other amazing formations.








Our zipling adventure was one that put Granny and Gpa's exchange program dedication to a true test.  Beforehand, it seemed like a rather fun way to spend an afternoon with our four exchange students, but when you are forty feet up in the air on a small platform about to step off into  space for the first time, doubts about the wisdom of that choice of adventure cannot help but enter your mind.  There was no such doubt in the minds of our four students and they zipped away without hesitation.  Granny prayed to God for help and then screamed all the way from tree to tree.  Gpa was last in line and had no choice but to take that step into space since the girls and Granny had already done so.   







Bullet Making

The right to keep and bear arms does not exist in China and three of our exchange students had never been in the presence of a real pistol or rifle let alone handle one or make their own bullets, so the opportunity of doing both was the experience of a lifetime for them.  Due to scheduling conflicts, the event took place on two different days.
