I go to Pearl Lake alot to dive cause its close to my house. I've seen about everything there is to see in it, so to keep from getting bored, I think of new skills to practice. I've been doing a lot of navigation work with my compass the last few times out. This weekend I'm thinking of borrowing a lift bag from the LDS and practicing some recovery skills. Maybe just move some of the cinder blocks around that are found all around on the lake bottom.
What kinds of things do other people do to practice/learn new skills? Or what do you do just because its fun?
But an Aerobie might work - those flying rings? I think they're negatively bouyant. But realistically - you shouldn't be far enough apart from your buddy in a local lake that throwing anything back and forth would be any fun. I imagine the visibility isn't like the Carribean?
