    Didn't you just lose a bet about talking diving.......

    Seriously - if people *really* want the scoop on DIR - talk to a GUE instructor. The internet is great for discussing part of it but its not the place to learn it.

    Since I am a 'stroke' - I can't do it justice. I mean - my gear is not all black, I dive with quick releases, I don't use a crotch strap, My light is only 10 watt non-focusable, my backup lights aren't 'approved', I don't use jets most of the time *and* I carry IANTD cards. I might die in the parking lot because of this and you want my opinion on DIR!!!!

    But miss a chance to joke about DIR without creating a religious war in the process - I don't know that I can miss that oppertunity.......

    Let's have a spelling contest?
    If you spell a word only one way you are closed minded.......

    Its actually a variation of a Mark Twain quote. He is one of the more famous dyslexics and was quoted as saying "a person who can only spell a word one way, lacks creativity....".

    carry on
    With the privilege of diving, comes the responsibility of conservation. If you dont like this signature I DONT CARE!!!!!!!!

    It's certainly not 100% gear based. It's a philosophy on diving. It does however lend itself to a certain gear configuration, and for good reason. Let's also remember that GUE and DIR are no longer one and the same.

    Welcome to the forums.
