    What would you pay for a few minuites added to your life to try to correct the problem at hand? What if you could have 5 or 10 times those minutes for little or no more $$?

    That is the spare air issue.

    Spare airs have their place. They are great for traveling and diving shallow reefs. It is obviously not a tool to be used for tech diving and it is not marketed as such so why all the fuss about it?

    Well now there I thought all Cave Divers carry Spare AIR!
    If they don't Darwin is waiting for them!
    Sorry could not resist.

    In Jan 2013, @TraceMalin...Trace Malinowski and I were joking that we thought it would be a great inside joke (at last for certified cave divers) to put one of those "In Case of Emergency, Break Glass" boxes on the wall way back near the Henkle that had a SpareAir inside it.
    Our biggest fear was that some would make it a "too fast, too soon" destination to take a hero photo with it...seeing this brought back memories of some great laughs...
    "I got this!" C.M.
