I was just thinking that had to be YellowEye with the flooded suit. One of these days he will stay dry in his dry suit. Hope the wind will get it's act together and only freak out on the bad tide days :)

Yes, I talking to John G and I was the one with a flooded suit! :eek:
You're right this weekend is a bit dicey on keystone weather -- so likely another time, maybe next weekend!
Thanks for the info on Baker!

Thanks for the welcome guys! I was at Keystone on MLK weekend when a bunch of you guys were there. I think my friend John from Gone Diving (with the giant beard) might have been talking with a few of you. I recall someone having a flooded drysuit! Yelloweye, Mt Baker is having a pretty good season so far, although I missed January with a strained hamstring. Luckily the snow base is over 200" up top so I should be able to make up for lost time in the next couple months. Enjoy Keystone this weekend if you guys make it out there. The weather isn't looking great at the moment! I am actually down in the greater Seattle area for work pretty regularly, so I have a pretty good chance of making the occasional earlier afterwork dive on the way home (Anywhere from Cove 2 north). I was even able to sneak off the clock early this week and made it out to 3 Tree for the first time for an afternoon dive with a friend who had the day off. There was a lot of cool macro stuff going on there (no lumpies for us though) and I really want to get back for more exploring when the vis is better.

Very cool! Welcome!

Scubajess and I and several others on here often make the trek to Keystone. So maybe see you there? We may in fact be there this weekend!

I still haven't skied at mt baker, is it pretty good these days?

Welcome aboard Ross!!! We’re glad to have you! Feel free to hop in on any discussions and keep your eyes on the dive planning section and I’m sure you’ll find some of us up north.

There’s also a group that meets on Wednesday’s at Mukilteo (still pretty far for you).

Cheers!

After a bit of time lurking around on this site and poaching gear from the buy/sell, I figured it was time to finally join and contribute. I've also probably said hi to a few of you out at Keystone on the busier weekends. I live up in Bellingham and try to get out diving a couple weekends a month. I unfortunately... also have a season pass to Mt Baker and a couple mountain bikes so getting in the water more often can be challenging sometimes! Keystone is definitely my go-to site, although this year Skyline will also hopefully be a regular spot. I got certified at home four years ago for my honeymoon in Belize, and enjoyed the cold water so much I bought a drysuit and didn't stop after we got back. I'm closing in on 200 dives and have been able to to visit Belize, Bonaire and Key Largo, along with a couple amazing trips out to Hornby Island. I also got a trip out to Neah Bay last summer with Capt. Phil on the Lu Jack which was pretty incredible. Chances of me making it south for the ThThTh dives are probably slim, but I look forward to officially meeting and possibly diving with you guys in the future.
