My dive buddy (my wife) has to work all weekend, and I'm itchin' to get wet. I'm in Jax, but would be willing to travel a couple of hours to dive...

Note: I am a newbie, and a bit of a hoover just so you know...

:smiley29: We hardly know each other. :smiley32::smilie39:

I'd love to go but that would make for a long day for me. I always make a trip down there in Feb to visit Ginnie and Blue Grotto and sometimes Manatee, are you close? If so I'll send you a PM when we are coming and you can come dive with us.

Definately PM me, or just post it up here when the time comes..I have no problem driving down to Ginnie or BG. It's about an hour and half from me..

Great, I will put you and Nitro in the notes section of my logbook so I don't forget about it come Feb. and I'll give you a shout. I am usually DMing for the shop and have students to deal with, but if I know you guys are going to be there for sure, I will definately make the time to do a couple dives with you.

Thanks for the generous offer. We usually stay in Gainesville you could even go out to dinner with us if you have time and we could discuss the WPB excursion that we usually tack on the end of the trip and you can join us if you like. We are usually done with students by then and all the DM's and Instructors drive down and do some drift dives with Jim Abernathy's. It is a good time.

Sorry guys, we (the wife and I) just finished booking our Feb vacation and unfortunately it conflicts with the trip I would normally take with my LDS to Florida to do student check out dives. So I won't be coming down THIS Feb to dive with you all but I am still open to suggestions and may make a special trip down to see you if I can swing it.

I would love to go, but I am working this weekend as well. I just went to Ginnie Springs this week. It is really nice out there and definitely want to go back soon.

A cruise kept me from making my annual pilgrimage to the springs and WPB in 2008 but below is my schedule for 2009.

Thursday, 12 Feb 09, Arrive at Ginnie Springs around 1:00 PM, do two dives. Stay in Gainesville.

Friday 13 Feb 09, two morning dives at Blue Grotto. Drive Friday afternoon to West Palm and spend the night.

Saturday, 14 Feb 09, do two morning boat dives out of West Palm Beach.

Since this thread is so old I will send PM's out to those who expressed previous interest in a meet and greet.

We (the wife, Kokomo, and I) would love to meet some of the Florida SCUBA TOYS members.

If anyone would like to meet us at the springs or West Palm we would love to get to know you better and maybe do some diving.

While in Ginnie Springs I will likely be helping a lot with classes, so I can't make any promises about actually diving with anyone the first couple dives. But I would like to meet and chat with you regardless. But since we are spending the night in Gainesville we could dive after the check out dives are complete or maybe just have dinner.

We will be traveling with Mocepts (a board member) and his wife so you can meet them and possibly dive with them and Kokomo at Ginnie or Blue Grotto even if I can't make the dive.

Blue Grotto is a dive and drive day. Since it is a long drive to WPB we won't be able to hang around too long after the morning dives but still there is opportunity to meet folks and possible dive with some of our group in the morning.

Once in WPB the working DM part should be over for me and we could all dive together. I think and hope that there will be room on the boat for anyone wanting to go out with us. Just let me know if you are interested and I will try to book you a spot on the boat with us. We typically go out with Jim Abernathy's although this has not been decided yet for this trip. The trip organizer has options to consider and I won't know for sure for a little while. If you would like a spot on the boat let me know asap and BTW bring your SMB, a safety sausage is now required for the boat dives. This is something new I just found out about.

We hope to meet some of you while we are in Florida.

Have a great holiday season.
