I posted this in the midwest forum, but figured I'd post here too:

At the risk of being accused of pulling a Bigman (planning dives before finishing a certification) I'm looking for information about Bennett Springs and Roubidoux Springs for a possible dive or two there after taking cavern this weekend.


1. Are these safe for a new cavern diver? Following all the rules of cavern diving of course.
2. Any air available in the area? Weekends? Weekdays? If not local, where's the closest air? Nitrox?
3. Any specific information?
