    Cave Diver's Forum 1st Anniversary Social

    The CDF becomes one year old this July 2002. To celebrate this anniversary, the Cave Diver's Forum is sponsoring a social at Ginnie Springs Outdoors, on the 20th of July. ( Midwest divers, unable to attend this social in Florida, have their own social at Roubidoux. Contact Marvin Zaske at zdiver@misn.com .)
    We have the Devil's Eye Pavilion reserved all day. This is the pavilion closest to the river. Remember you can dive right up to midnight... We solicit your input, since, after all..... this is YOUR site and YOUR social. Please email Mr_Social@Cavediver.net (James Hurley) if you want to help or have any good ideas, suggestions or comments.
    Picnic items are being donated by some cave diving organizations and individuals, and we will have some giveaways from others, like Cave Diver's Forum T-shirts (the first ever). If your organization wants to help make this social a success, please contact Mr_Social@Cavediver.net.Tentative Menu:

    The original G250 came with various add ons to the name such as "graphite" but there were no significant differences until the G250 HP came out. The G250 HP used an entirely different air barrel and...

    Moving to FL, Tampa or Orlando?

    Tampa has the second highest rate of insurance fraud in the nation. Miami is no. 1

    Moving to FL, Tampa or Orlando?

    Just move to cave country. You are within 2 hours of either JAX, MCO, or TPA. Take your pick of the cheapest flight from any one of them. Orlando is a nightmare and I would not recommend living there...

    Ebay is the way to go. I've bought 10 sets of MK10/G250s off of ebay in the past 6 months and never paid over $75 per set (except for the crystal but that's a very special reg). I send them all over...

    Moving to FL, Tampa or Orlando?

    I picked Orlando over Tampa, to move to, 30 years ago. It has changed a lot.. very busy now, but I still say its the center of the universe. I am staying.

    I love living in Tampa. Lots to do here and nothing is far away. Good access to the highway makes cruising up to cave country relatively painless. The airport is very accessible. I live in south...
