I'll bet the aquifer is fully charged and the springs are screaming!

<DIV>I've pick up 4 pair of Oakleys from the river. Plus lots of car keys, a couple wallets, cell phones, bathing suits.... Paper money (and beer) doesn't last long; but I've got a jar of coins that gets a few more each trip. Too bad my wife does not appreciate old bottles as much as I do.</DIV>

Has anybody been to Travis in the past few days? I was there last weekend when the water was just below 700 feet. I see it's at 686 now and was wondering if vis is clearing up yet?

Vis stinks from about 10' to the surface. slightly better as you go down. Really good at .... Well that's a different class.

McKinney, Texas. I've been to Athens a couple times, but never CCSP - have to join up with a group some time. About how long does it take to get there? Do you need to get there early in the morning before the training classes stir it up? And can you rent tanks there, or do I need to get tanks here before I go? (My tank is out of hydro - got to get that fixed:smiley19::smiley19:) Is a 3 mil wet suit enough, or do I need to get out my farmer john?

I'm in McKinney as well. It's about 1.5 hours, depending upon the time of day (traffic) and how fast you drive. I've had more than my fair share of moving violations, so I stick to the posted limit. :)

Going early is a good idea. When you are the first one in, you get the best viz. OW classes tend to "churn it up" a bit.

Yes, take your own tanks or rent. The only thing is they don't offer Nitrox fills.

Obviously, heat/cold tolerance differs from individual to individual, but 3 mil is probably good for above 30 feet (these days). Anything deeper than 30 for any extended amount of time, and you get cold really quick.

Yea yea yea, I know, a scuba diver out here in West TX... Well this area is great for diving! Point any direction and I can give you a place to go diving. Granted, it's a geographical oddity due to the fact that all those locations are like 3~4 hours in any direction. :smiley5::smiley36:

It's a good thing I have a car like like to drive. :smiley12:

A few hours in to NM and there is a Blue hole :), I basically am in midland every week, for work... well... I work in NM, but fly in to midland and could base myself out of midland with out to much effort. I have been kicking around the idea of diving the blue hole in santa rosa, nm for about a week or so.... problem for me is temp... 61 degrees year round... yuck.... I have to see if I get all bundled up in my 7mm and hood, if I can take those temps at CSSP before I tote all my gear out there.
