    There is much travel planned, but that is from my wife. I would like to do more lake dives around Kansas area, but she loves to travel. No, Midwest Aquatics is in Overland Park, right off 69 and 159th street. They go to Table Rock lake for certification, but pool time is right at their location.

    I am in south eastern kansas. about an hour or so south of KC.

    We must be fairly close to each other.

    I am right south of Paola KS - if you know where that is? Not many do, but I am surprised sometimes.

    Beaver Lake in Arkansas (just up stream from Tablerock) has a decent Scuba park near the damn. Look up C and J Sports in Eureka Springs.

    Let me know if you find any local lakes to dive. I am in Wichita and would like to find somewhere closer than Tablerock or Beaver for a quick diving getaway.

    I am going to Lake Wilson with the local dive club for a scouting trip in a couple weeks. There are a lot of reservoirs in Kansas, some of them have to be somewhat diveable.

    It's been 20 years since I lived there. Now that you mention it I remember that Midwest Aquatics. I drove 69 a lot, going to school down in Pittsburg. Grew up in the North end of Johnson county.
    I have been through Paola, can't say I did anything in that town besides just drive through it.

    Even longer ago there was a scuba park in Kansas. It was an old Limestone quarry that was used in the construction of I-35. I believe it closed before I left town. I might still have a hand drawn map of how to get there. Around Gardener? Only dove it for my checkout.
