Today was interesting. It's 12:26 pm and I just got back from crawling underneath my church. The reason: looking for dead animals.
I may not be claustrophobic, but I admit that mi corazón was beating pretty fast. There are all these thoughts of, "Man, an earthquake right now would NOT be good," or even, "God I pray I get out of here alive!"
But yeah, I now have a high regard for those who can crawl through tight spaces routinely and extricate dead animals or run wires through houses.
And there's a lot of space underneath our church. I probably crawled through ~200 feet total of waist high and below spaces, sometimes having to crawl on hands and knees to get under pipes.

Since this doesn't do well w/ showing homemade schematics, I suppose you will just have to imagine it...
