Looks like I've got a "Kitchen Pass" for the weekend. Wife is going to be at Church Assemblys all weekend so I'm going diving. Heading to Oronogo! My local dive buddy had a part one class this weekend so he can't go and I'm still waiting to hear back from Steven V. out of Kansas City to see is he is going to show up. If Not, I'm going to be the "Dive Whore" AKA "Dive Mooch" and be looking for a dive buddy.
I'll be in a blue/purple ford ranger extended cab 4x4 wearing a black and grey Pinnacle wetsuit. Come find me or just yell at me if you don't mind me tagging along.

Thanks in advance guys! Ken Davis

Lucky!! Who do we talk with to get permission to dive there? I imagine it's not that deep but if I can get wet that is all that matters.

My God Father lives there and it's against the community rules to scuba dive there. We have been doing it until we get busted..:smiley21: His neighbors are really cool in the cove he lives in but I'm sure it won't last long once it warms up and more people see us. I've been taking my instructor/friend there to do my rescue classes. Saves the trip to Oronogo...

Didn't make it to the BIG "O" today but going first thing in the morning. Spent all day helping my friend out with his part1 students taking scuba just so we could dive Sunday. It was suppose to be a two day class but they did great and made it easy. So hope to see some of ya there.

It has been several years since I dove there.....can one dive solo (without the f'ing card)....or are you required to sign in with a buddy at the same time?

Texas,

Last time I was there, you had to give a dive buddy name or show a solo card. A few folks came as "pick up divers" and doubled up with some folks. From what I've seen, saying your looking for a buddy there will work, but John has been known to watch those going dong the road to the water to make sure they have a buddy.

KennyD and Brandon Belew hooked up with me and Medicdiver on opening weekend and that was acceptable to John.

Have fun tomorrow.

Or I live 10 minutes from Oronongo. I could not have dived because I was on call, but you could have used some regs if you asked nice and swore to replace them if you F them up. If you died, I woulda got the rest of your gear!

Bob, Thanks for the heads up! I'll keep ya in mind if I ever pull a dumb Azz mistake like that again.
And yes I would replace them in a heartbeat. I currently dive with a Apeks XTX200, AquaLung Legend Glacia Octopus and a Suunto D9.

Anyone still going? I would like to go - but not make the journey unless I have someone to tag along with.

Any takers?

I plan on leaving here around noon. Wife has some church things to do in the morning. I've been dealing with a little bit of a cold too but I'm planning on being there around 3pm. Better late than never. And staying the night and diving all day Sunday. Hope to see some of you guys there. My LDS Adventure Sports is going to be there with a Part II Open Water Class both days. Tyler Brewer is the Instructor (Very Nice Guy)
