    I saw a note that it has been delayed until the 12th. I'll update the event.

    My guess is that it will be a comparison of the (worse) things that can happen if you take a hit and don't get on oxygen or in the chamber until later.

    The DAN lecture I attended (beyond Boyles) was very thorough and was made even more so by the Q&A at the end. These lectures are not by grad students but are by the primary researchers. Come and ask your questions, we will all benefit from that. Except the one about exploding heads, don't ask that one. We all know the answer to that one. Your head doesn't explode... your eyes pop out like in the movie "Total Recall". So, if you don't want to go through life looking like a pekinese dog, don't surface faster than your bubbles. (BTW, this whole last paragraph was a JOKE).

      No problem JT. I look forward to meeting you too. I joined this group so I could meet more local divers. I am a recreational diver returning from a hiatus. I will use this winter to regain skill and I look forward to diving locally (aka OBX) when my skills are up to that task. I am planning to focus on the medical side of recreational diver at the moment and will do some tec (nitrox) along with that.

      The last time I took a "hiatus" was to come for fresh air... lol :) I would suggest a trip to AB as opposed to OBX... Its such a LONG drive ans there its much better diving local... I am still searching for Blackbeards treasure... I KNOW its here somewhere!!! We can talk next week but, seriously, there are much better dive sites much closer than OBX... And, unless you want to spend a night in "Rodanthe" the banks are WAY over rated...

    Sorry, I should have said "rapid ACCENT"... However, both are equally applicable...

    Will this discussion be addressing anything more than "don't beat the bubbles"??? I would certainly hope that any form of DCI could and should be avoided and that any diver with any knowledge SHOULD know the danger that a rapid decent provides; short term as well as long term.. DUDE!!! YOUR HEAD COULD EXPLODE!!!... Will nitrox be talked about or will there be any discussion about pause and release after diving in excess of 200'??? I would like to attend I am just hoping it will be beneficial... :)
