    Angry I wanna dive so freaking bad!

    OK, so I can't complain too much since I was just in Coz last month. But I want to get at least one dive trip (local) per month. Is that too much to ask? It's 4 freakin hours, one way, to my closest dive site. That's 2 tanks of fuel to go diving, or almost $200!! I just can't do it, and it's driving me up the freaking wall! I have so much training I want to complete this year, Deco, rescue, and wreck. I want to get in the practice of the skills learned from Cavern so I can take intro to cave. I have all my own gear (I could open an LDS with all this crap). All I need is to GET to the water and I can dive for days without going to the shop for fills. I just can't afford to get to the dang water!!!

    AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ok, as I have been thinking about this, my fuel usage calcs were off. It would be closer to about $150 instead of $200. Better, but still too much to spend.

    There are several of us Aquanauts heading to Athens Tx this weekend. We are leaving early Sat. morning and returning Sun. evening. If you can make it to Tulsa, we are carpooling and sharing hotel rooms to save on expenses, you are welcome to join us. I figure even with that will probably cost me about 150.00. But I really need to get some dives in also. The only diving I have done since last Nov. has been at the Aquarium.

    I appreciate the offer, but I have a scout fishing thing with my son on Saturday.

    I'm about to go dive in a rain puddle.

    tell me about it all my gear, plus my new gear is all sitting in key largo. I am stuck here in indiana. Was looking at another two weeks but a job is look like an april project, the owner wants to wait 2 or 3 weeks to start it, and dad said when we come back to do it, he will come with my mom, since I have to come back this summer for classes.

    I will 2nd that. I grew up in Kansas, moved to Tulsa OK for 3 years & then finally moved to Nixa MO 25 mins from Table Rock, 1hr 30mins from Beaver. Don't know how I made it so long living that far from anything diveable???
    Say When....
