Holiday weekend coming up anybody diving or are you spending it topside? I'm heading to Northern Iowa for a family reunion. I actually checked around to see if there was any diving in the area I'm going (except the Mississippi - I heard there's a lot of water up there). But, my wife would absolutely kill me if I made a dive trip out of a family reunion. Better save that @ss chewing for something better. Seems kinda strange that I have to burn a vacation day for something other than diving.

wish I could get in a dive. driving down to arkansas to meet up with my mom to get my daughter back from her...she's been with her since Saturday. Sucks driving past all those lakes between here and Clinton, AR and not being able to stop.

Where at in Northern Ia are you going. My inlaws are in Norther Ia and there is some good diving on Lake Okoboji. There will be LOTS of boat traffic up there that weekend though. There is a dive op up there called Blue Water Divers, they are in Arnold's Park right on the lake...

I'm actually going to be in a small town called Waukon, IA. It's in the far NE corner of the state - 20 miles from Minnisota and 20 miles from Wisconsin.

Yes, I looked at Lake Okoboji and thought I needed to get up there some time. Looked like fun. Unfortionately, I can't even think about diving this weekend. It's my family and if I left my wife with my family while I went on a dive, I probably would have a very quite and cold ride home.

Where exactly is Lake Okaboji?

rented 2 tanks on Monday, plan on playing in the pool for a bit, but too busy to go anywhere and dive - family coming in for Friday/Sat. and hitting the Cards/Cubs game on Sunday - may run over to Mermet Springs on Monday afternoon if i can sneak out of work - I would like to get a couple of dives in before we leave for Bonaire next Friday :)

Here is the Google Earth locator location to Arnold's Park, where the dive shop is.. The satalite images from this area really stink, but you get the idea...

Thanks Phil,

I will definately have to check it out some time, probably not this trip. It's probably not too far from where I'm going. Move over to the NE corner and that will be where I'm at.

Thanks again,

Snagel

I have a dive scheduled for Sunday, but I'm really hoping to find someone to get wet and sandy with some other time this weekend, because it'd be a real shame to only get one dive (day) in on a 4 day weekend.

Man, maybe I'll get to the hotel and fill the tub with water - do you think that counts? If the hotel had a pool I might of packed the dive gear.

I'm not sure I'm diving this weekend either. My buddy has to work and isn't sure when he's available.

The sun, moon and the stars lined up and I'll be diving on Saturday with my club, North Coast Divers, at Ocean Cove on the Sonoma (CA) coast.

Silencio por favor...Sietese por favor...Donde esta dolar? That's about all I know that works on the streets.

Now in Coz, I know the two most important phrases: Dos Cervesa por favor and Donde esta Banyo?

Well, I'm sitting in Waukon, IA. Spent the evening with my cousins doing the firework thing. Big party tonight and picnic tomorrow. The gills are drying out and there doesn't seem to be any water in Northern Iowa. I thought this place was flooded?

Have fun at New Melle - Dogs!!!!!
