Well the Gulf looks like a bust all week. So does anyone want to go dive Morrison Springs either Thursday or Friday afternoon. I have not been to the springs in about 3 years. But with the gulf looking like crap, why not head over there. I have wanted to get over there since they reworked the spot.

The river stage looks to be high until Thursday or Friday so viz will be crap till then.

Who wants to go. I can get over there around 2-3pm.

I could probably do a Wed. afternoon dive. I was just waiting till Thursday of Friday because of the river level. Usually it's muddy if the level is up. I'll shoot you a pm.

I think the cave entrance is at 50 or so. I have not dove there in over 3 years. It's time to do it again.

Lisa and I hit Morrison yesterday afternoon about 3:00.

Water was nice and clear. Being the first dive of the year, we just wanted to check out the gear and refresh the skills a bit.

I hadn't been there since they built all the new boardwalks... it's NICE. And if all the little kids will stay off the scuba table for a minute, you can actually put your gear up there, making it nice and easy to gear up.

Jay,

Are you the guy I was chatting with before my dive? I had a few minutes to kill while waiting for Lisa to get back from the car.

If so, nice to meet you yesterday!

It was a good dive. Decent vis for Morrison, but not as good as it is early in the morning before it gets stirred up.

We played around on the training platform, brushing up on skills, then went over to the cavern. I went back to the platform to see if the cinder block was still stashed somewhere around there... couldn't find it. The cinder block was good lift bag practice.
