Fantasy Lake

Anyone interested in a morning dive (9:30) at Fantasy lake? I'm hoping to head up and do a tank or two but don't want to just show up and hope for the best. I figure there has to be someone looking for a relatively cheap Sunday dive. I'll be driving a burnt orange Jeep Wrangler look for me there.

      I grabbed one this morning actually. It's quite a bit of a drive from Fayetteville and wasn't sure I was gonna be able to make it. Sorry to hear you're not gonna make it out. Maybe next time.

    Robin/Mark - besides my gear do I need to bring anything else. Is there an admission charge, do I need to be a member or anything to dive? I have a portable grill and a 12x12 ezup I can bring with chairs if we need a place to hang out on a surface interval.

      There is a $20 admission fee and other than that I can't think if anything. I may only be able to do a 1 tank dive my second tank failed the visual. If I can rent one before Sunday I will.

    When i got certified my open water was @ quarry in November - I has several thermos's of warm/hot water and poured into my wetsuit before i wnet into water - minimized the initial entry of cold water and got the body to warm up - Just a thought David....I will know this evening if I'll be joining you two or not - will let you know tomorrow.

    If I can't join you - looks like I'll be doing Gypsy's pool to test gear and "me"...

    I am with you I have a thin wet suit also.. I guess we just give it a go.
    I will be in a white Prius.

      It was really comfortable on the 27th in a 5mm so we should be good, if not, we'll know pretty quick. See ya there.

    David, two weeks ago the vis was 20-25 ft and the temp at 35ft was 70. i'm hoping for at least something similar, I only have a 5mm suit and am not looking to freeze lol

      David, I'm game for Sunday morning. I'll be in a burnt orange 4 door jeep wrangler I have an hour and a half drive from Fayetteville but I should be there around 9:30.

      David, I looked at my log from Oct 27th, it was apparently 64 that week not 70. It was 70 on the 21st.

    Hey Mark,
    That sounds good. I have been out here for several months now, and have yet to do any diving.. How is the viz. at the quarry. Any idea on what the water temp. is.
