    Amen! Hoping to get that way once and get past the first room this time.

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

    It's about 40 cfs less than last year in the same time frame. Here's hoping it stays nice.

    According to Diane at Bennett, OW/AOW is all that's needed, You can't get into trouble in the main room. one way in, one way out with a good flow.

    1. Watch the flow...if it's above 120, I recommend scrubbing - we treis at 160 and it was insane. The rumble sound was cool though, kind of like a frieght train. USGS Current Conditions for USGS 06923500 Bennett Spring at Bennett Springs, MO will give you up to the minute flow rate. Mind you, that's cubic feet per second!

    2. Make a reservation with Diane Tucker at the nature center before heading that way. 417-532-3925. They allow a maximum of 6 divers per day and no more than 4 in the spring at one time.

    3. No Solo Diving and you must have a surface tender on site and watching whie you're in the water. They can't be off fishing or anything else while divers are in the water.

    4. Visit Sangel site http://midwestmuckdiving.com ( Bennett Springs ) for more info

    Right now the flow is right at 100 cfs which is more than do-able.
