So I wave off a dive today, cause I have family flying in tonight. Need to rearrange the guest room or some such ****.

Buddy just called. Viz 120, seas calm outside and, oh yeah, saw a 10ft Hammer.

Could be worse. After all week of great reports, my buddy and I woke up early this morning, loaded up the car (doubles plus stages plus three flights of stairs = NOT FUN) and drove an hour and 20 minutes... to find 6' waves and a couple hardy souls staggering out with reports of 1-2' vis and terrible surge.

So at least you didn't waste all that effort and a half tank of gas.

you did right by the family and even though diving was good, you will be rewarded for your good deed soon enough

I agree, as much as I would take a day of diving over anything else... Gas prices are making it so I can pick between either paying for school and not diving, or diving, and not being able to go to school. Damn you people with gas friendly cars!

That sounds like what I always tell my buddy when he cancels out. :smiley2:

Maybe said family members will decide to buy you a big ST gift certificate because you're so nice.

If they don't, hint at it till they do.

That vis is amazing, I've not seen anything worth reporting so far this year. Yesterday had 10 feet, week before 8 feet.

I think you did right by the family thing.

Similarly I'm sitting here at work on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and I don't even have a window in my office. I'd much rather be off somewhere with crystal blue warm tropical water sucking air from a metal tank watching the fish go by.

Honestly, at this point, I'd even settle for cold, no vis water, haha!

Did your buddy have pictures?
