    I've been reading up a little on the subject.


    I just assumed that you would want at least 50% O2 if not pure O2.
    Diving is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it.

    yes I prefer 100%.
    If you want some good deco reading get deco for divers. I've been reading it and even with my deco class I am learning a few things. It is in depth without going to far..so far at least. No math unless you look in the back of the book.

    I have a PhD in Bovinian Excremetology.

    A second vote for Mark Powell's book. It is outstanding. The TDI book absolutely suck when it comes to decompression theory. It actually sucks period. However, this book is very thorough. It presents a detailed study of the prevailing theories, both traditional (haldanian) and more recent (bubble models), but without going into mind numbing detail found in the technical texts on the subject.
    The views expressed above are simply my opinion and do not necessarily bare any resemblance to the truth. As a matter of fact, they are typically a load of bunk and should be summarily disregarded.

    TDI updated their books and I hear that they are better.
    I actually enjoy reading Mark's book. Hopefully all of us knew what was going on while diving after OW, but this takes it one step further.

    OK so I should say more. The group that dove FRP last weekend decided to dive Pennyroyal Labor Day weekend. It was reported that they have built MORE shelters quarry side. The cabin on the hill is done and ready to rent. And many changes are on the way.
    For those that have never been there or are just getting certified, we don't care we will dive with you. Check out the above link to Pennyroyal and you will see that they have depths for everyone. Including those deco divers (hint, hint, hint)

    I know that I will be camping for the weekend and maybe be there on Friday evening. Just depends on the schedule.
    Will you dive with me? I have to stay in the kiddie pool though.

    Are you still paying the buddy fee this year?

    I might forgo taking your money for some tacos!

    I'm into a good book at the moment (Deep Descent) but I'll check that out for my next read. Thanks.

    As far as tech/deco diving, I ordered a sling tank and reg set-up today to get used to diving with it. I pretty much committed to take ADV nitrox and deco under Larry at Aquatech if he'll give me some dates.

    I was somewhat planning on taking it elsewhere in warmer water since I'll be diving wet but Larry convinced me to take it in the cold conditions of the quarry. I guess if you can survive that, you can survive anything. I can't wait to spend 30 minutes in 43deg water

    Maybe I'll get to make your and Tammy's next deco dive.

    Hey the burgers at the quarry are good and the tenderloin (if they have it) are to die for.

    Hold out for one of those instead of tacos.

    Seriously? I might be interested in a used one at a decent price. I just can't afford a new one right now.

    I think that I'm close to your height (a little shorter) but a lot bigger around the middle. Think it would fit?
