Well, Peter and I just got home from our whirlwind trip through cave country.
Our sincere thanks to Dive-aholic and his wife, for arranging tanks, playing guides, and putting us up. There's no way we could have enjoyed the trip anywhere near as much if we had been on our own.
Thank you to Perrone Ford and Vayu for showing up and playing with us in the Ballroom on Saturday, and I hope they enjoyed the comic relief of watching my first attempts to run line in flow. It was also good to meet chickdiver and Benthic, even if we didn't get to dive together. And it was great to meet One Bright Gator and his dive buddy, and I hope someday I can show the same grace and poise on deco in the Eye that Ben does
Thanks to Edd at Cave Adventures for providing the tanks, and for having such great prices that we came home with a bunch more dive gear than we left with! And thanks to GDI for writing to Ginnie Springs with the TDI standards, to support our bid to dive there in doubles. And many thanks to Larry Green, who I don't think posts here, for solving the problem when the guard and office said they hadn't gotten Rick's message.
Now I just want to know if anybody has an estimate for how long it will take before I have skin on my fingers again . . .
We WILL be back. Peter's, if anything, more hooked than I am now -- Jackson Blue did that to him.
I have the three days of diving written up in excruciating detail here, here and here.
Come with me and Peter to the Philippines this fall!
A journal of my open water class (from 2005) can be read here.
Okay, you've heard all our opinions. Want to know what the science is? http://archive.rubicon-foundation.org/
About GUE Fundamentals versus Intro to Tech: "ITT informed me that I was expected to donate my long hose whereas Fundies beat me into actually doing it, thirty times, halfway through shooting an SMB, upside down while swimming backwards in sulphuric acid."
