Mostly trying to figure out a good way to not have to carry weights to the site in preparation for some more remote stuff.

This video makes me not feel so weird.

There is a section of the Kettle River that we have floated for year. It is about 4 miles long. Last year, since it was the first time having scuba gear, we floated using our wet suites, snorkel and mask. Add a light weight belt so that you can actually dive down and it was lots of fun. Most of it has an average depth around 10' but there are some spots that drop as low as 30' or so.

This year since we have a couple of 40cf tanks we took them with us. Did a little monkey diving, as I hear it called, by just slinging the pony over your side.

It's lots of fun. There are tons of fish to see. Lots of odds and ends people drop in the water that they can not recover.
