Anyone interested in diving Oronogo Quarry (Joplin, MO) this weekend? We're looking at driving up early on Saturday, open to staying over Sunday or coming back the same day.

Diving CRNA (Don) and Dark wolf (Kyle) I know are planning to be there along with maybe a few others. Both of these guys are great divers and fun to dive with. Drop 'em a line, they'll help you out. Heck, they've let me tag along 3-4 times now andthey haven't left at the bottom yet. :D

Pm sent to you too.

Hey Malibu,
I already posted you a reply on Scubaboard but wanted to post a reply here also just to make sure you got the message. I am planning on going up Saturday morning at about 9. I will be driving a green tahoe. Hope to see you there.

It was great to dive with you guys too. Sorry I had to split, but as you guys saw I had the wifey with me that day and about when you guys went down I started getting the whole "I'm hot, are you about done yet?" stuff. I decided to call it a day and return in the future to further explore the mine. Hope to dive with you guys again sometime. Thanks Dark Wolf for showing us around.

Vis was pretty consistent 15-20 feet down to 130′. Surface temp 85, bottom 50-53. Thermocline at 22-25′.
My first time, so I don’t have a reference for the water level, but it seemed to match the map pretty close.
The dives were interesting and challenging. Relaxed with new buddies during the SI.
My new favorite (inland) dive site!
