    Hey Mike,

    I'm in Rochester also.

    The lack of decent local diving generally sucks, but I'm still managing to go diving almost every weekend (when the water isn't solid). It just means a lot of driving... I can tell you of some good places - drop me a PM.

    Cheers,
    Jason.

    Ah, when the water is solid just get a chainsaw.

    Hi, CJM,

    I'm south of you and have family in Blooming Grove/Washingtonville, right by you. Some SB'ers in the Sullivan/Orange County area have invited me to dive with them the next time I'm up north visiting family, you should join us. They dive in the Delaware River and some local lakes and rivers in your area.

    PM me if you're interested and I'll give you their info.

    Sam

    Apologies to Mike, Melissa and upstate area divers, I did not mean to highjack your intro thread. It's just great hearing from others who have the need to dive. Stay safe and wet!

    fppf- Funny you should specifically mention that.......we are planning on doing that drift dive in August with the folks from our local dive shop, and we're stoked.

    No worries Sam, no harm in taking it in whatever direction it flows.

    jmyabeer- will do.

    Yes, training is a must if you want to ice dive for sure.

    Mike, we do that dive weekly, if you want to come down just give a shout.
