    Yep, my wife did that drive for a couple of years while going to school too. I work in Gardner, so I have not heard of any quarries, but it may now be the Gardner lake? I will have to ask around here at work to see if any long timers have heard of the place.

    Found the hand sketched map. This is from the days long before internet, GPS, etc. Spent a little time deciphering the map with satellite images. Add in a little memory of nearly 30 years ago. Doesn't happen that it has been closed for 20+years.
    For Scuba Only. 1914 W 24th st. Lawrence, KS But that isn't the location, guessing the place that owned it. Pretty sure the place is here.

    Welcome! I was stationed at McConnell in Wichita for about 6 years total (got my open water in a little pond in Wichita). If you get a chance Beaver Lake is actually a fun little dive destination or if you have the cash/time Bonne Terre Mine is highly recommend (note, nothing other than your open water certification is required as it is guided tour along very controlled routes but it's chilly!).
