Relocating permanently to Boise Idaho from East Coast (DC area) next 1-2 months. Looking to get more dives in a dry-suit between October/January 2016 in order to go on a bucket list dive to Iceland from Boise, ID. Any good recommendations for local scuba shops and quick lake dives in the region (i.e. easily get to without hours of driving) to mark a scuba log book? Looking for 10-20 dives in a dry-suit. Yes, I am dry-suit certified in 2012 (i.e. only what it took to get this certification and no opportunities since then for dry-suit) but desire to re-concentrate on buoyancy in the dry-suit, inflation and deflation of the dry-suit at various depths, and simulate emergency procedure(s)-underwater.
