    You realize if anything happens to you, Forrest, we will be in a historic wasteland.

    OMG Kazbors out of business! It will probably end up as another Mexican restaurant...where's the wall where it really matters? Hope Bev's is still in business...nothing compares to a bbb with cheese.

    Without the Forrest, we'd be in a waste land,

    What the heck is PSAI? I can't believe how many organizations are training cave divers these days.

    edit: Oh, I see it is the descendant of PSA.

    Hope their training is better than their grammar.

    Probably because cave diving is so easy that even folks from Alabama can do it.

    Hmmm, reminds me of a video "A Deceptively Easy Way to Die".

    I worry about the quality of training of some of the new agencies, especially the ones that only require the instructor to be full cave trained, with no specialized cave instructor training.

    It would be interesting to see a side by side comparison of what the different agencies require to be a cave instructor. My impression is that it varies widely.
