Lake Rawlings (21-22 Sept)

There are several of us going to Lake Rawlings for the weekend (21-22 Sept) to get some more diving in before the winter sets in. It is an opportunity to work on old or new skills or a new gear configuration; but what ever the reason it is an opportunity to dive again.

    Nice meeting Karl. Dunno who else was there but think I saw Vinny. Would have been a better meetup if the organizers had made more effort to help people actually meet up.

      Vinny- Think I may have seen you as you were loading up. Double tanks into an SUV of some sort, around 2:30 - 3:00? Had on your GUE tee shirt?

      I honestly don't know what a Halcyon kit is. I'm brand new to Diving. Signing up & learning was a very spontaneous thing. I'm really glad i did now. I want to figure out which gear I want and start going

      Halcyon is a manufacturing company and their equipment is awesome. It's back plate / wing combo, not like the jacket type. The BP/wing set up is the best option in my opinion - you can keep it as recreational, but use it for advanced tech dives as you progress.

    I should be down there tomorrow morning to do some bottle rotations with my buddy, then off to cave country before my kit dries out. Good times

    I've never done a quarry dive (yes I am spoiled by the Caribbean and Hawaii). What should I expect in terms of water temperature and visibility, and what arrangements for meals and overnighting might I need to make?

      Thinking of / planning on tent (primitive) camping; what time do y'all think you'll arrive on site?

    On Saturday, there will be a UTD Equipment demonstration day. It is completely free and you will get a chance to try out some pretty cool tech style diving equipment including side mount.

      Tanya's great. I'll show up in my GUE shirt and say hi. UTD is a good organization too...Andrew G. is an amazing diver and one of the original GUE guys.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
