Subject: JOIN YOU
Hi everybody……First of all I would like to thank all the staff who made this website a reality. Thanks as well to those brave cavers who cross the kingdom for discovering places and coming up with valuable information for the public. It would be a pleasure for me if you let me join you. I like traveling, discovering and challenging, so I would glad to help you guys in any trip you are going to make later on. And since I'm one of the locals living in between two cities Riyadh and Sharourah (1000 km south of Riyadh, west the Empty Quarter), I may help you in any information you might need.
Another thing I want to say is, if somebody has GPS coordinates of some caves around Riyadh I would be appreciated if I could get them. I have some GPS's coordination of some non-cave places around Riyadh, so if some one is interested in that, just drop me a line.

Thanks for your news. We don’t get many messages from “between Riyadh and Sharourah” … Does this mean that maybe you live in Sulayyil? If so, maybe you can tell us if you have ever seen caves in your area.
Ali, we are adding your name to our list of people who would like to go out and see some of the caves near Riyadh. Hopefully, this year we will be able to organize such a visit.
In the meantime, we are happy to report that the first steps are being taken to prepare some Saudi caves for visits by the public. Soon we’ll put some news about this on Saudicaves… so please check our home page occasionally!
