    Need for recompression chambers

    If the NSS-CDfS can generate $400k for local rural city/county land & water conservation projects, why can't y'all set-up a 24/7 stand-by Emergency Recompression Chamber for dive accidents only and...

    Are cannister lights still necessary?

    That's what I saw with the original focus as well. Not quite as good as an HID. Although a lot of people are using them in pretty tough conditions without issue

    the 2.0 however, is better. I'm...

    Scooter gas management

    Edd's right that there is no rule. Think about the specific dive you want to do and add gas/scooters till you feel comfy.

    Swimming out isn't always going to be an option

    Cavern Class 2/8-2/9

    I also took Cavern with Johnny last November and am going back to finish Intro in April. He is truly excellent. And you either did it right or he doesn't sign off...just how it should be done.

    Scooter gas management

    Agreed. Prior to the class I felt having a big safety margin of all that backgas was ultra conservative. As I started to realize the distance one could get back in the cave on a scooter I saw some...

    WTS: Dual Bladder Nomad

    I took a transpac harness, a dual bladder rec wing, and the nomad butt plate and made my own. Only used in Mexico for two trips and twice in cave country. There's 1# weight on each shoulder but they...

    Scooter gas management

    Using only stages works great until you need to swim after scootering. What happens when you are scootering to a nomount restriction and want to pass it? It's a real b*tch to bring the stage through...
