    Bennett Spring Sat. Nov. 15?

    I reserved the spring for Nov. 15th and it looks like (due to deer season) I am only going to be able to muster 1 or 2 buddies. We are limited to 6 people per day so if anyone would like to join us, let me know. I will also be there Nov. 1st for the cleanup dive, so if anyone would like to meet up, check the conditions, or whatever; there is that oppurtunity. I have someone to provide the "surface support" that they require you to have by the way.

    Hey Ben,

    I'm heading down there this weekend for a dive. I love this dive and might be interested in doing it again on the 15th. Keep me posted.

    I found it on Google Earth. The parking lot is right north of the Spring at approximately:

    37 43'00.20 N
    92 51'23.18" W

    Just search on Google Earth for Bennet Springs. Move in and find the "Spring". The parking lot is right there.

    If you need directions, let me know.

    Bennet Springs is located near Lebanon Missouri (South Central Missouri). It's a State Park.

    Dove it on 11/2 - Viz about 15' real "soupy". Temp mid 50's. Flow Rate: 135 cfs. This was a little tough. Really got a work out trying to get to bottom. Had to grab line to pull self down.

    (If anybody finds a weight pouch, let me know. We lost a weight pouch somewhere in the cavern or spring).

    Can't make it on the 15th, I have to work. For some reason I was thinking that was this comming weekend, which I should be off, but next weekend I am working... Sucks to miss both opening day of deer season and a great day of diving...
