    Default New deepest cave in Canada.

    Peter Norris and I drove for 16 days (round-trip) and accidentally found the deepest underwater cave in Canada. I will have pics and maybe even an interim map this weekend at the Midwest conference.

    Is that a mini-sport booster filling a 50 using a 50 as the drive gas?

    Awesome find. The cave reminds me of Indian with the white'ish walls speckled with goethite.

    Nope. It's an old KISS baby booster. Don't nock it as I have had it for years now and for road side stuff it has been great.

    No knocking, I'm impressed by it filling 50s. I've been wanting a cheap, easy boosting solution like a mini sport for a while, but everyone's swayed me away from the small pumps. It would only be used for when I need to fill al40s that I forgot to fill in cave country the previous trip. I've transfilled some, but it always seems my two oxygen tanks are low enough that I can't transfill the oxygen in 2 40s much past 1800 psi. I don't want a big booster because I don't have room for a big shop compressor.

    You don't need a large compressor, I run my ag30 haskel off a 30 gallon craftsmen. I fill mostly rebreather bottles and from time to time top up 40&80 bailout bottles.

    PS just noticed this is my 100th post since 2004. Sorry for hogging so much bandwidth ��
