Hey fellow DDCN divers!

The Squirrel is coming down to MO and wants to do some diving! Anybody up for a day trip to Oronogo on Saturday, May 16?

If anyone is planning on being down at Oronogo on the 16th, please let me know!

If the regulator is in my mouth, I will be underwater..... I assume that said bikini will be under your dry suit undies? Or are you "manning up" and diving wet??

BTW-I fixed your post. You sure you are a writer?

Sorry about the short notice. Events occurred this week that just made sense for me to go on a road trip. I'll stay at the hotel in Joplin I guess and head over to John's in the morning.

I have a few people saying they will dive. If anyone else is planning on being there, let me know so I know who to look for.

hahahaha - Oh c'mon. Don't be a killjoy!

Doesn't EVERYONE in the lower Midwest wear speedos?

If my warm water diving trip to Bonaire taught me anything, it is that men and speedos are a scary combination. :smiley11:

Way too close and personal for me

I wonder how many men have stuffed their dry/wet suits with an SMB?

Can you imagine the uncontrolled ascent if it accidentally overinflated?

That's why we usually use potatos. They are neutrally buoyant and don't compress :smiley36:.

05-15-2009, 15:09
I don't get it. Hawaii, what gives. I was thinking of diving this weekend, maybe I'll rethink the destination. Branson looks to be kind of iffy with a 50% chance of thunderstorms, not sure I want to camp in that, or dive. Joplin looks better with 35% in the morning and clouds in the afternoon, long drive for me. I'll think it over before I get off work and see what I decide.

Either way, be safe.

Vis was about 10-15 above the 'cline. Below the 'cline is was 10 or less. I dove to the cabin cruiser frist dive (first in the water too), north of the CC is went to about 5'. I tied a line and tried to find the dog house, no luck-just too murky.

No light needed above 80' with the full sun out. There were a lot of students that mucked up the shallows, but it was good outside that area.
