Re: In Memoriam: Lynne Flaherty (LCF, TSandM)

I haven't stopped by here in years, and I wish it wasn't under these circumstances. But, somehow, it seems appropriate to say goodbye to Lynne here. She was a pillar of the global diving community, a tremendously friendly person, and really filled with light. Kids and life pulled me away from diving...

I've been in family mode. Been holding on to this stuff, but just not getting used much. Better to give some people some good deals than have it in the garage gathering dust.

Re: Yes, Virginia, there is diving in Oregon

The swell might not be as bad as it sounds, all depending on the wave period. Is there an offshore buoy there reporting the wave period? (I could look, I'm being lazy...) Yes. There is. If you end up doing this, surf forecasting websites will be good for that. www.stormsurf.com has good resources a...

If it is 220 ma, that makes it Triassic in age, and likely part of a shallow seaway associated with Pangea, probably a slice of carbonate material that ultimately got accreted to the N.A. plate during the subduction event that crea...

I don't know why some of the limestone is grey with white veins (probably 75%) and then there's pure white with no veins at all. I have some pics of both I will try to post tonight.

Maybe corrosion in the holder increased resistance across it-creating heat. What was the fuse rated at? If this is Chad's old scooter, that is probably a fuse holder I installed years ago.

My guess is, if you ask around here, you could find tanks to borrow/rent (some shops have steels) and a buddy or two to show you around.
