With the world as crazy as it is right now and ’social distancing’, what are everyone’s personal thoughts on diving lakes, quarries, ocean or maybe just in the privacy of your own bath tub?

[Choose #5] I’m a Self reliant Solo-diver. I dive alone 98% of the time. Naturally, I’m practicing social distancing ALL the time LOL!

[Choose #1] Chose #1. Haven’t dived yet this year only because the weather has been crappy almost every weekend. But when that changes, the wife & I will be hitting one of the local quarries.

[Choose #5] I’d dive, but the sites (springs for cave diving) are still closed unless you have a boat to access them via the river. And, I’m still out of a job, so no spare change at all.

[Choose #5] I dived Monday and don’t plan on stopping. We drive separately and maintain distance on surface. Buddy and I carry pony for redundancy.

[Choose #1] Don’t share a second stage with your buddy and dive 6 feet apart. Mask and regulator beats N95 filter every time. Also, solo diving is safer than ever before.

[Choose #5] Personal choice. There’s safe ways to do things. Safer than driving to the dive site.
