    First WI cave dive of the season was good. 48F water. Sunny at least.
    I don't know, the outdoor skating rinks are open in Chicago. Something about diving now up here seems a bridge too far for me!

    I am planning on finally getting certified in January, but I'm going to Barbados to do it

    Haha. Warm water divers.

    Are you doing the class entirely in Barbados or at least doing classroom/pool at home and checkout dives on vacation? It’s actually best to do classroom/pool at home so you don’t waste vacation time on that.

    If you need a dive shop recommendation, let me know.

    Leave Friday for FL. Spending the night in Nashville both ways. It’s sort of the midway point. Didn’t dive this weekend as both buddies had to cancel last night for today. That has never happened before. One wasn’t feeling well and the other had a family emergency. But not diving today means I get a head start on packing for FL as my gear is dry. There is a huge mound of gear on my LR floor. I was already packed for diving today so I just had to take out the heavy drysuit undies. Won’t need them in FL.

    Getting ready and anticipating an adventure is the best part. Enjoy!

    Wanted to just post my first FL cave dives were yesterday at Peacock Speings. Challenging but fun. We’re at Ginnie Soringd today so we’ll be pulling to get in against the flow coming out.

    Yes, Iris, I am still alive.
