    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.

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:

    Gene Broom's Urinal behind the chimmney in Little River.

    Two comments: I swam that passage as recently as three weeks ago and many more times over the years and "never" seen a urinal in that area. Must have been moved or removed back in the day.

    gear collection

    Thinning out the gear... here are a bunch of items I need to find a home for. Prices do not include shipping, they can be shipped, picked up in Jacksonville, FL or possibly dropped off in cave...

    New to sidemount - which rig?

    There are two very different types of sidemount diving. Tight caves ask for a totally different setup compared to big cave / open water. I prefer alu tanks in tight caves because you have the tanks...

    New to sidemount - which rig?

    I have very close to zero experience, but have the same questions as the TO. As I've tried the Xdeep and found it quite reasonable, would you care to elaborate?

    Hart Info....

    Black Lagoon was the only entrance at the time Hart was opened to guided diving. Little Hart was sand choked and quite an experience going through; check it out in the first (I believe) Waters...

    Gene Broom's Urinal behind the chimmney in Little River.

    It would have been behind the drop off above the chimney...as you face the the descent, there is passage way behind it. I was only informed of the shinnaggins by the perps involved with the affair...

    Hart Info....

    That makes sense. I've never seen either but have wanted to dive them.
    Does the line in hart start in ow because of the flow or is it deeper in the cave because of the swimmers there?

    Wasnt hart...
