Guerilla Diving
chazrich - 3/18/2011 7:20 AM
My new Brother-in-law is down for the weekend and we talked about logging as many dives as humanly possible in the four days or so of his visit. We’ve discovered, though, that there just aren’t enough shore dives around here to do that. The diving is good here in Pensacola, don’t get me wrong, but it’s just not Bonaire. I’m at a loss as to where to go diving that will be exciting for a seasoned veteran diver like Mike without breaking the bank. I’m hopeful that some of my dive buddies have plans...

Life is good. My family and I will be taking a cruise to Cozumel the third week of December and I am stoked. My wife is talking about how cool it will be to be on a cruise ship and I am talking about getting off of it - at least long enough for a day of diving. Any recommendations for a dive operation in Cozumel? I understand the cruise line can set us up with an operator, but is that the best way to go? Any thoughts?...
Headed to Pensacola

Just a heads up for my dive buddies; I’m heading down to Pensacola, Florida for at least the next two years starting in September. So for those here in Texas - let’s get in a few more dives before I go, and for those in the Pensacola area - I’m on my way back fellas, lets go diving!...
Balmorhea State PArk

Well, it’s vacation time at long last and the family and I are headed out to see the relatives in Colorado. We plan to stop off at Balmorhea state park on the way out of Texas Saturday and do a bit of swimming and diving. If you just happen to be in the area then stop by for a dip, I’d love to meet a few more of my dive buddies. Chaz...
Garner State Park

My wife is taking her staff for a camping trip this weekend at Garner State Park. Of course the first thing I asked was whether there was a good spot to dive there. It looks like there is indeed a divable spot or two, so I’m off to fill my tanks. If you just happen to be in the Texas Hill country and just happen to have your dive gear in the car drop by and we’ll get wet (like anyone I know really needs an invitation). Charles...
Stillhouse Hollow
chazrich - 3/28/2010 11:19 AM
I got together yesterday with a couple of new dive buddies, Roger and Skip, and we spent the day diving Stillhouse Hollow lake in Belton, near Killeen Texas. We made our first dive just before lunch and Roger and I stuck around for a second mid-afternoon dive. This dive was definitely cold, and murky due to very light silt that stirs up into thick clouds with even the slightest touch, but the company was good and the dive was fun. It’s always good when you can get together with a couple of great...
Spring Break

Well, I managed to get Spring break off for the first time in years. My wife and I just bought a pop-up camper, so we’ve loaded the dive gear and the camper and plan to wander West Texas. We plan at least one dive day at Balmorhea State Park. If you’re in the area and want to come diving just let me know what day and time and we’ll try to get there if we aren’t already. Chaz...
