    WHAT?! There's a poodle on fire? Let me get my hose off the truck....

    Ohhh, wait I just re-read your post. No, poodle-jackets are not good to use to start a fire.

    Why is it I suddenly vision a 101 dalmations spin off starring Cruelella DeVille?

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)

    i recommend beaver lake... simply becuase it's in beautifull country up in a small mountain range, lots of wildlife, not a heavily populated lake at all like table rock is. look up "Eureka Springs, AR", it's just over the MO/AR border. Eureka Springs isn't where you wanna stay but you'll probably want to stop there as a tourist destination, and will stay close to it.

    If you are doing the Ohio tour you need to add Portage and Whitestar!

    There is some good cheap affordable places to stay in Eureka Springs, especially in the Winter time. They're very glad to see divers, or anybody show up.

    During the Summer I camp at KOA, their pool is extremely large in comparison to most places and it's not far from the lake. They have cabins if you don't want to pitch a tent. All in all, I like that place best.

    Beaver is certianly a good idea... lol i can hear the jokes now..." Merri wants to dive in Beaver" lol anyways.. Ywah THE LAKE would be cool.

    I appreciate the thought of adding the OH sites, but those we can do any free weekend we have from home. BTW both are great places to dive!

    And yeah, I am with Nat... sooo not a girly girl! lol

    Shopping for dive gear, now that's a pursuit worth going for. There is a lot of good dive shops down south and worth the time to check out.

    Beaver Lake is nice, Oronogo is nice for a dive or two, but for me I like to see things that are natural and so the Lakes are more fun. There are reasons that Oronogo should be a dive consideration, it kind of depends on what you like to do there.

    There's a lot of places to see, but IMO Beaver and Table Rock would not be wasted trips.

    I've done my OW and AOW dives at Haigh and it's not bad. Other than that, I only have dove in Cozumel, so I can't really judge the quarry against others. Definitely would be up for a summer trip to Haigh, though. Please keep the info coming.

    Haigh at the top

    Haigh can't be beat for the number and variety of fish. I've been to most of the mentioned quarries on the lists, but Haigh is unique due to the large number of fish, significantly more than the others.

    I went to Bonne Terre last year, and I am going next weekend too. It is expensive, but I want to go diving and I don't have a drysuit so many of the currently icy quarries are out.
