    Input on Books needed.

    I got 3 second hand books last week:
    Tom Mount-Mixed Gas Diving. A little bit outdated, but still a nice book, and I dove with Tom.
    Rob Palmer-Deeper into blue holes.
    Guy de Laveur-Caves and...

    Cave CCR certification required at Ginnie Springs

    Such a silly turn. You can make up 50 different calculations but you're never gonna know ginnie's annual income on divers. All you need to know is we arent special cause we're dumb enough to swim...

    Cave CCR certification required at Ginnie Springs

    Far too simple of an analysis to convince me of anything.
    Sure the OW divers matter. Even Intro divers who pay more.
    How many Ann pass holders are out there? I wouldn't even hazard a guess....

    Green Cove Springs?

    Wow, they really put a lot of effort into making it look even less natural than id did before. Its a really nice facility though. I guess it just makes me sad to see a spring so domesticated.

    Ginnie Fatality?

    My cave DPV instructor (Paul Heinerth) and my mentor on my early DPV cave dives (FW) both emphasized that when you add a DPV to the plan, gas planning needs to become more conservative, not less.

    Ginnie Fatality?

    Thanks Ted. My thanks also to all involved with recovery, and condolences to friends and family.

    Ginnie Fatality?

    @nitrogenius, the argument against not being able to go farther on a dpv is hilarious.

    I budget 5.2cf/100ft for entry, and 10.4cf/100ft for exit when doing...
