Anonymity.

Although I dont hold a divemaster title much in regards any longer, after meeting one that didnt even know what PPO was.

Just go do the dives and screw the rest of it.

I'm aware of the eddy. In fact the third time i surfaced too early and was stuck at the point unable to surface swim to the beach past the kelp. I still hd 1500psi's after 30 min dive so i dropped down to 20 ft and pulled in on kelp. Surfaced at 5 ft on the beach.

I'd recommend following the rule of thirds. Last time I was out there, there was a strong eddy pushing us back into the channel on our way out.

Wow, that's quite the initiation hazing.

Welcome to NWDC Ryan and Scoobie. Hope you guys (at least those of you not moving to CA) stick around in the club. Seriously, the dive does have some ingredients for a good dive for sure. I've always wanted to try some of our better sites at night. Sunrise has been on my list. Glad you guys are geeking out on northwest diving. Keep learning, be safe.

Is that code for extending your trip? Cuz we know you're extending your trip.


Damn, you know me too well. But I'm only extending it if they can provide an alpaca that will fit into Tangfish's latex gimp suit.

You have to add an extra minute for every llama you add to the stack.

Jeff Pack wrote:Not really, you have to really chase them about. Although llamas have 2 kinds of spit. One spit is like ours, and just sprays. Its not a big deal. Now they have a second spit, that comes from way down deep.

You want nothing to do with that one. I watched one of our sheep terrorizing one of our llamas, I heard the loudest, deepest, longest belch since my fraternity days, only to see this vile green spit spray across the side of the shed.

One year later, it was still there...

Like I said, you want nothing to do with that one... :)



Even better!
