    South African to Cave Country: When? Where to stay? What to dive?

    Weird seeing a fellow South African here so let me add a couple of words...

    Dries, the flow here is halacious in many caves, and while it takes some getting used to, it's an amazing experience....

    Cave ccr. How much, how soon?

    100% Agree. I just felt that we needed to clarify that this is as much an individual skills problem as an equipment problem. It breaks my heart to go areas in JB and HITW that were pristine just a...

    Trimix ~250cf 17/50 -- Help me get rid of this

    I have two lp85's cranked full of 17/50 that I have no use for. If you dive sidemount or need this mix, let me know. We can either try to Haskell it out or you can borrow the cylinders. I will trade...

    Roll-offs in Sidemount? Have you ever?

    Only 339 cave dives, 200+/- in BM and the rest in SM. No rolloffs yet in either configuration.

    Roll-offs in Sidemount? Have you ever?

    Only a couple hundred SM cave hours so far, but I've yet to see a dive where my valves begin roll in any SM configuration... New, but I am not in the habit of bashing my tanks along the cave walls...

    Cave ccr. How much, how soon?

    To be fair, I've seen way more SPG drag marks from SM divers than CCR diver induced damage. And the biggest culprit - BM banging into the ceiling. It isn't so much the equipment as it is people...
