We're looking at hitting Oronogo the weekend of Memorial day. Anybody interested in meeting up and doing some diving Friday and Saturday?

Also, does anybody know if John is considering opening up early on Friday since it's a holiday?

Worth a call. Regina had told me once that they usually open up friday afternoon/evening atthe end of Maty. They wait until then so that the divers get a couple of good dives in befoer dark. Any earlier than the end of may, it gets dark too soon.

If things go well, I will be there on Sunday the 17th.

LaCroix42

Spoke with Regina today, she doesn't think there are plans to open early Friday since the holiday is Monday.

So...anybody want to go in and split the costs to have 'em open early? :D We'll be there some time around o'dark thirty and should be ready to dive around noon. Who's in?

I am able to dive Saturday, and may possibly be able to go in on Friday. Will have to leave early, though. Have a Korn concert to go to Friday night.......

If you're able to dive on Saturday, then I'd imagine the concert's not in St. Louis. KC?

Dark Wolf

Lol. The concert is in Springfield. Thinking it would be nice to get a couple of dives in early Friday, but will have to see how things shake out.....:D

Bob, People may not be gear, but they can be TOOLS. And some TOOLS are big and heavy and burdensome.

I recommend you roll over the TOOLS with your dolly. And, hit them with your purse while you are at it.

Sheesh. A dolly. That hill is NOT THAT BAD.

Down the hill isn't the problem cowgirl, it's getting it back up! You're fiinished with the dive and now you have to walk back up the hill. That's where a gear dolly is advantageous.

Presuming nothing catastrophic occurs or we get an unexpected expense, the plan is for Blaze and I to make it for that weekend, yes. We're in the process of getting hoods, gloves and boots so it's a bit more hospitable for us, too.
