I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone-even if I don't dive (we are trying to work out some kind of a wetsuit combo for me to use) I'll hang out and be shore support. With it only being about 3 hours away from me I can hardly say no!!! If nothing else, it will be a reconnaissance mission for future dives.

You can rent one from John at Oronogo if you can't find one. You might want to give him a call and make sure of the size. Here is his website

Captain Johns | Oronogo, MO (http://www.oronogo.com/)

It's $12.00 to rent and that almost worth not having to deal with cleaning and drying the suit.

Hey CowGirl: I really hope you can dive. But, if you decide to be shore-support, I believe a friend of DWs will also be topside. She does not dive as of yet.

My wife will be there and she doesn’t dive and will be topside also. Now you girls be nice to her and don’t corrupt her, she is an innocent Kansas Farm Girl and I want her to stay that way.:smiley36:

Also if she ask you to go shopping I will warn you she will shop for hours. If you go with her be sure to get her cell phone number because she could be anywhere in the malls. She looses all sense of time and direction when while shopping. You have been *Warned*.

I told my Brother-In-Law I was going to Oronogo the 28th to meet & dive with you all. After that he said he was going to buy the rest of the gear he needs for Oronogo & come with me.
That wuss wouldn't go to Table Rock Lake with me last weekend because it was to cold & he did ot want to rent gear.
Now I know all I have to do is tell him I am going diving without him & he will man up.
It would kill him for me to have more dives in my log book than him.
We have been diving together since we got our C-Card & he so can't let me get ahead of him in number of dives I have under my belt, he had to man up!
For all the ladies I am not sure If he is what you would all HOT!!! (not bad but a bit skinny) he is young & single though.

It still blows me away I have never dived Oronogo.
I grew up in the area (Galena KS) And had a buddy That was Certified at Capt Johns back in about 91, we went to Mexico 4 times & I always did the resort course so I could dive with him.
Never knew there was such good diving right where I lived until about a year ago.

Also, how many people are thinking of staying afterwards (like me) in order to get a fresh start towards home on Sunday morning (remember, there is a rumor of a hot tub...)?

Sounds good Kenny, i was thinking that 3 would be the absolute most. Should be a good dive. Any thoughts about a second dive.

For the Second dive I'm going to keep it pretty simple. If my wife does dive then I'll prob. take her to the L.D.S. if she is up to it. She will be diving wet so it all depends on how cold she is. Deep dosen't bother her and she has no problem doing deep dives. But not sure how she will feel about the short swim to the sign with overhead.

Nat, Like Don said. Aprox 85' depending on the water level. It's a cave dive because of depth and not being able to see the light zone. But most people treat it like a Cavern dive.
Don is great at navigating through the doors. If you talk sweet to him I'm sure he would consider giving you a Safe little tour. You are diving in a Drysuit correct?

Woo HOOOOO! Okay - back from Bonaire and catching up on the lists and threads. I CAN'T BELIEVE this turnout!

Welcome Joshua - it looks like your questions have been answered, right?

KennyD and Missus are going to have a great time in Bonaire this week! The diving truly exceeded my expectations.

And, I made it to 92 feet following the slope of the dropoff to an overturned lifeboat. I felt completely in control and very stable.

I'm also pretty pleased that I was pushing 55 minute dives and popping to the surface with over a 1000 psi in my tanks, with average depths beyond 40ft. I guess it safe to say I'm not an air hog!

I'll be high and dry until the 28th. Can't wait to dive again cold and dry! There is something to be said about not putting on wet wetsuit day after day. I don't think that suit fully dried once. I guess I put it to good use. Although - going topless was truly a liberating experience one doesn't get to do often in 34 degree temps.

PS - get yer head out of the gutter, I meant I didn't wear 10 mls of neoprene on my head. :smiley29:

I'll have a DVD of the trip by the 28th for anyone interested in seeing my highly unprofessional uw phots and somewhat appealing topside photos of the diving and island.

Hhahahahaha Frogman, oh, that made me giggle. I'm wiping the tears from my eyes it was so funny.

Asking DW if a little probable rain will keep him from diving. heeheeeheeee...

and 50 degree temps? - that's sunbathing weather for that DDCN diver. He'll be walking around in a t-shirt and shorts.

Pull on yer big girl panties - you're diving with hard core diver Monday. :smiley2:

dang - wish I could go. :smiley13:

DW, I was planning on attending and bringing my non-diving wife and one diving guest if that sounds good to you?

I dove with DW and Malibu Tinman last 4th of July weekend and met Kenny, but have not met any of the other DDCN gang, this looks like it will be quite the get together.
