    Dive Trip Planning Log

    Last year, my winter project was to put together a "Midwest Dive Log" complete with specific dive location and GPS coords of dive spots such as the Zeb in Table Rock, Duck Island, Coptor Cove at Beaver, etc. I have this is a Word Format. If anybody is interested send me an email at nagel1990@charter.net. The file is too big to post here.

    This year I thought, what we really need is information about dive trips such as a good hotel/motel to stay at or a good camping location or a good dive operator. I could easily google all this, but what I really need is information from all of you. You know who is good and who to stay away from. So my challenge to you is can you provide me with information on planning a dive trip in the midwest. Areas such as Table Rock, Bull Shoals, Norfork, Oranago, Mermett Springs, etc. I'm sure there are other places as well.

    Information I'm looking for:

    1) Name the Dive Location.
    2) What is a good hotel/motel in the area - Phone numbers would be great, a short bio of your experience, GPS Coords if you have them.
    3) Any good camping in the area?
    4) Any air fill locations?
    5) Any place to stay away from?
    6) Any specific Dive Shops or Dive Operators in the area - good or bad?
    7) Any good resturaunts in the area? Anything to stay away from?
    8) Does anybody give any "Diver Discounts"?

    I think you get the picture. The more information the better. If you would be willing to share this information, I surely would appreciate it. I plan on putting all the information together and if anybody would like a copy let me know.

    Dive Training Magizine has places through out the US. U could probably get one of those magizines and look it up on the we site. I don't have the web site off hand. But they also list what's available and what's not.

    I started a post about Pearl Lake in South Beloit IL. (by WI border above Rockford). 37 acre lake with a sand bottom. And a bunch of stuff sunk including a sub and a plane. Depth up to 85'. They do Air fills, have a very nice campground, and a resturant. I use Loves Park Scuba as my main LDS and this is just a little south of the Lake. Loves Park also does charters to Lake MI, and Lake Geneva. I would love a copy of your final list, thanks, Darin

    My in-laws live in Rockford, never really thought about diving when we go to see them but why not...
