First - yes, I know the depth and no deco limits on the Cavern / Intro divers.
However, I was really surprised to see what I can describe only as 'bitterness' that some divers expresses simply because Cavern / Intro divers carried deco or stage bottles into a cave. Perhaps it didn't help that the divers in the story silted the bajeezus out of the cavern area.
Please help me understand - was the angst simply because the divers brought the tanks, or because the divers were actually violating the rules?
I, for one, like to bring a deco bottle on all my dives for no other reason than training practice. For me, practicing the proper gas switch techniques, executing drills while wearing the bottles, is very helpful since I don't get a lot of actual deco dives in. It doesn't hurt to do my safety stop on a slightly richer mix, either.
Just wondering if I should expect to be accosted by irate cavers while I'm practicing.
