I posted this in DDCN and thought that I would also post it here for anyone who has not been to the DDCN sub-forum.

Ok, here is the deal. Who would like to dive Oronogo on March 15? We are wanting to dive, but need confirmation from at least 10 people to justify the extra price to have John open the gates (About $100).
I will be in contact with John in the next couple of days to make sure that this date is all right with him, and will post the results. Hopefully we can get at least 10 people who would like to dive.

Thanks,

DW

I just got off the phone with John, and he is pretty sure that the 15th is open (he didn't have his planner in front of him). It will be $100 to open the gate.

So far there is myself, Lineman Larry, and Brandon Belew. Got another 1 or two maybe's.

If you'd warm up the water a little, I'd probably make it, but anything under 50 would definately be pushing my limits. I'll definately try to make the Sunday of the weekend they open for the season.

Won't be too bad - be just like diving below the thermocline I would guess.

DW - I might have 2 extra

With Beaver being 42 from top to bottom, I can't imagine Oronogo being much better. We need a couple of warm rains.

The temps at Oronogo stay the same temp year round, except for the first 20 feet or so. Temp at 100' will be about 54-55 degrees. Even New Years Day, with air temps in the 20's, it was still the same temp at depth.

It's gonna be fun! Hopefully the weather cooperates. Be nice if it was as warm as it has been the last couple days.

And hopefully my new wetsuit doesn't cut off my circulation :D

fat guy in a little wetsuit.....

But seriously - it's not that bad.. just would make zipping it up a whole lot easier if I lost about 10-100lbs. :D

I just got off the phone with Captain John's, and everything is set for tomorrow. Air is $5 per tank. Gate will open at 0900, but we are planning a meet and greet and the truck stop on 96 East of MM highway. The meet and greet is planned for 0800 at the truck stop.

My camera is having problems, so there will be a minimum of U/W pictures taken. But I plan on plenty of topside pics.

Let me know if I have missed anything.

Sorry bout whimping out Saturday. Once I hit that cold air after the first dive, I shivering too much to be in the mood for a second round. I ended up on the couch all day Sunday wrapped in a blanket. :smiley13:
