    I have some new gear to configure! Looking forward to it! Woot!
    It should only get to 65* today in the air. I can't wait!

    Going out myself today with a high of 52 in the forecast. Don't think the water temp is going to be any warmer than that. Have fun n be safe.

    Man it was nice to dive dry. Water wasn't cold (66-63) and the therma-cline was at about 50'. First dive sucked getting it dialed in, second was fun!

    Woot! I assumed you were diving your dry suit all summer long... Glad to hear you are back in it and it went well! I've got 31 dives on mine now - it's all I dive up here. :) But it's time for me to pull out the thicker undergarments - I've been diving with just cold weather running gear layered up, and that's not cutting it anymore. Weight check in my future.... :)

    Air temperatures yesterday were in the low 40's with about a 15 kt wind; water was 50 degrees. I was very happy to be dry!

    Hey Mitch, where did you dive, LLM? I'm thinking of getting a night dive in there this Saturday. I'm going to dive wet with my SM.
    I have some rig changes to check out. I'll be doing that late afternoon before the night dive.

    I'll be there. I'm camping. I'll dive dry, my last dry night dive was an abortion. My gear was all gacked up. My second dive was awesome and I could not make myself invert. Got to get my trim better, but it is much better than before.

    I really wanted to dive all year dry but in tn it gets damn hot and humid. Maybe some day. I think I have about 20 dives on mine.
