Re: Great time at Edmonds today

John .. did Bethany try the fins I loaned you? And if so, did it help her floaty feet issue? Glad to have met the two of you Friday evening, and for being able to spend some time talking diving together ... ... Bob (Grateful Diver) She did use them. I asked her and the reply was that she was focuse...

Re: Great time at Edmonds today

I just sent you, Bob and Brian all emails thanking you for the experience. I know Beth and I had a wonderful time and cant wait to do it again. Hopefully we will have our basics down a little bit better, but as you know we all start somewhere. Now that I have a heated trailer and knowing what ~42* w...

Re: Diver Missing At Cove 2 (11am Today 2/19)

I know I am the new guy here but just a thought about civilian vs "pro/paid/job duty" (not sure the correct word to use) dive rescue team. They train together with certain expectations and procedures. I know there are a lot of divers out there that are way more experienced then some/many o...

Re: Beat this.....

It was a Lake Conconully and put on by Okanogan County SAR. There were folks from at least 3 counties and several agencies.

Of course it says "Fire Line Do Not Cross". As I said in my original post I did it for a class. We did not cross the line, we were inside it :supz:

Re: Friday March 2rd dive.

We were hoping to get wet about 10:00. If there are better times that is ok, but that is our goal.

Re: Friday March 2rd dive.

Thanks for the update. It does help some. We are dry siders so all things Ocean are pretty foreign to me. I will be learning though.


Based on the info I got in the other post I did list in my original post that Les Davis would be preferred for those reasons.

Re: Friday March 3rd dive.

I see all the info you listed but it is all jiberish to me. This is why we want to go with experienced divers. I have heard of the terms but have no idea what they mean in practical terms.

So originally I had planned on coming over to the west side on the 25th for a dive day, http://www.nwdiveclub.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=17450 I found out yesterday that is the only day my co-instructor can not get out of work so I have to be here for class. This means I have to pick a different da...

Re: New divers dive (Feb 25)

So after checking the sites it sounds like Les Davis would be a great site. Now it sound like the vis can be varied by weather conditions and tides. How far ahead of time will you be able to tell if it is going to be an issue? We each have an HP-100. We are diving wet so it will most likely just be ...

Re: New divers dive (Feb 25)

Sorry been getting our butts kicked at work. I guess I will have to look up those dive sites and make a choice from there. Hopefully tonight I will be able to do that.

Only looking to go with experienced divers. Too many new factors for us to try it on our own. The 2 sites we dove on our own were in areas we are very familiar with. I will PM you if needed but hoping to keep it open and see if we can get a few folks if they are interested. I am open to going to any...

Re: To GoPro or not GoPro.... that is the question

I got a Gopro last week. Been thinking about one for a while and got a "pro deal" on one so it made the choice easy. Durring snowboarding on Saturday it preformed amazingly. I do need to play with settings and see what works best. Sunday we "dove" in the local 5' deep indoor pool...
