    Default Need some help...

    Just got home from my hip replacement. Perhaps too much ice hockey and bull riding in my youth...

    No diving for a while, so I hope some folks will post some dive reports, pics or videos to ease my withdrawals.

    New to cave diving and really jacked about a recent dive? Share your enthusiasm. We were all there at one time. Your efforts will be greatly appreciated, I promise.

    Thanks so much in advance.

    going to hit up P3 this Friday on the CCR for some silent time and a nice slow poke around in that cave
    Saturday we are going with two of our buddies for their first time traversing grandly and will try to get some fun pix at least before and after if we don't get anything in the middle bit

    last year was rough for me with only 3 cave trips due to work and life, but this is already #2 for me this year which is awesome

    Here is a story to cheer you up. 4weeks ago we found virgin system and powersnorkeled it to confirm it goes. Unfortunately the most spectacular entrance ended up having Gators in it and because it is a circular cenote with 30 ft drop using ropes. I considered it is the best time to dive it now while hopefully they are sleeping. Well while I was pulling up debris from the upstream lead two small Gators bounced into my mask. They were small but they presumably were born from a bigger one some time back. Like I said there is no other escape from that cenote ( the lake is about 100ft across ) other than up ropes. So this would make a heck of a horror movie kinda like The Cave 3 if mama shows up.

    Really wanted to continue this system before summer takes over but 2weeks ago I had a crash landing while in North Eastern DeLand after jumping from a plane and now have sprained ankle and knee. So I feel your pain - I wish I can go diving now into water or air don't matter....

    Best wishes for solid and quick healing.

    I LOVE rookie/newbie/beginner enthusiastic dive reports. The ones where they only go a few hundred feet and they're in AWE of the cave. Man, I love that sheeeeet! Seriously. It reminds of how I got hooked and brings back that fresh excitement. More please!

    New cave divers only?

    I would try to act offended, but I only want to hear stories from Jeff Dobbertein.

    Hey, hope you heal rapidly! So, today we went 1600 feet down the peanut line which was the furthest I have been on that line. The BIG DEAL is the dome right around 1200' on the peanut line!!! OMG!!! It just goes up forever and there are a zillion little mirrors reflecting light in it. I actually had to swim upside down in my double 104s (on purpose) for the first time to soak it all in.

    I thought you were trying to connect Joe and Mary's sink to the sewage treatment plan. Or is that Tegg?
