We'll finally settled in. Orlando area.

Looks like my first dive here may be Alexander Springs on Thursday.
Then Maybe hit Lake Denton on Sat.

Couple folks are heading out to Boynton for Beach/Boat dives, but does not
look like I'll make that one.. Maybe next week when wife is in Boston, then Paris :)

Kinda sucks being the new kid on the block so to speak, and not knowing any of the sites, people etc..

Welcome to Orlando! I'm here and available for diving too, but I'm only free on Sundays and Mondays. I work the rest of the week. It would be great to meet up with more divers.

Welcome to Florida. I'm in Jax, about 2.5 hours away, but if you are ever going to the springs in the Gainesville area give me shout, I can make it over there most weekends...

Good one :)

hmm, you've heard of plan b, plan c-- Guess I'm working on Plan J or K :)
Seeing how the other 6 or 7 wives did not work out-- :smilie39:

Anyways--

Trip was to Blue Springs instead of Alexander Springs, who would have thunk 68F water would require a ghetto farmer-john.
Had on my full 3/2 and 3/2 shorty and was still cold--

Got to about 57ft and ran into that little sign that says "Turn Back" unless cave certified --
Was a blast. I think the wife will have fun there on the 31st/1st unless we do Denton Lake before they
close it down.

We dove Blue Springs a couple of weeks ago and I went without a wetsuit. It was a bit chilly!
Are they closing Lake Denton?

Are they closing Lake Denton?

That's the info i gathered. I heard they were going to close it down by the end of sept.

I just read an article about them closing Lake Denton. That's a pain, we do a lot of training and teaching there. I believe there are another couple of lakes that you can dive in down there but I'm not sure about their locations. Does anyone know anything?

Hey guys, I'm new to Orlando myself, a UCF student.

I'm open for diving on Saturdays and Wednesdays. I am free next Friday too. I might be free Monday mornings. I have air in the tanks and want to get wet, if anyone is free anytime soon I'd love to go dive!
