      Hey there. I'm trying to post this question on the boards but can't find where I should. Hey everyone, I live in Lake Arrowhead at 5670' elevation. I'l be going to long beach to dive Catalina and need to come back home the night of the dive day. Should I be ok to do this? Do you have an answer for this?

        Sounds like you need to plan on taking @9 hours to get home after the dive.

        Agreed. If I stay down for 6 and slowly come up, might that be ok or too risky?

        That sounds like a safe plan.
        Enjoy the diving!

      Hey Jim
      Just reading your 1000 Island report. Can't reply because I am not a member of the group :( lol oh well. Wanted to say glad you enjoyed the diving here! It is loads of fun! And as far as exposure protection we got all kinds here - from people diving 7mm shorties, farmer johns and drysuits. Forget about dive gloves - cheap hardware store kind work great at this temp and you don't care if they get wrecked. Take care and dive safe

      Hiya Jim, just saw you were online too so I thought I'd give a shout....after reading Eugene's write up, I'm wondering what I've gotten myself signed up for! :dontknow: Should be fun by the end of the w/e regardless or at least an opportunity to laugh at myself!
