    The purpose of the Cave Diver's Forum is to provide a place on the internet for civil discussions of anything cave diving related. This site is not a place to learn how to cavern or cave dive. This site contains plenty of comments, stories, reports, and opinions. Be careful, responsible, and mature, both in your posts and how you use anything you read here. Moderators do not monitor the accuracy of the content of threads posted here, and the opinions posted herein are personal opinions, and as such can be misleading and/or inaccurate. Entry into any overhead environment without proper training and equipment can get you killed.

    New to diving and not yet cavern or cave certified? Watch this short movie if so. It might save a life; yours!

    Please ask him if you can share it. He for some reason thought I wanted to embarrass him with my earlier question, while I really wanted to know what he meant with his RD comment.

    "To dangerous to dive"
