welcome to the dark side, dave!

even though Deschutes is my current favorite brewery. there are many excellent Oregon beers. i do enjoy many of them and pledge my allegiance to S.N.O.B.

the 13th is still on, too. i believe oregondiver (shell) is interested in diving that day too. the more the merrier. maybe there can be a carpool/caravan going. i'll post a thread about it soon. any requests on a dive site?

I've got a truck with room for one more or would be willing to carpool up. I would be interested in diving Alki Pipeline on the west side of Alki point. :occasion5:

Deshutes has been my favorite for awhile. Ya just can't beat Black Butte Porter.

Thanks to Sparky, a friend and I stopped in at Garibaldi Scuba about 1 month ago. Dick was very friendly and we bought a few items. But I must say the supply of current items seemed to be small. We hope Dick or someone else keeps a shop open in the Tillamook area.

I'm in! What's the dive profile like, .5ffw for oh, about 4-5 hours or until golden brown?


usually 2-3 hours with an MOD of 1ffw. you can go longer but you'll get into an margarita obligation, and really long dives will get you into straight tequila obligations.


Dang it can really get rough when u get in the tequila abligation, the upsurge can get nasty


yeah, i've been in many dives where there was a terrible upsurge. :partyman:
