Tues. Aug. 1st, 2017 - What an awesome, relaxing cave dive my buddy and I had. I started out on the lead to find the jump to Rollercoaster, and set the line. When we got to the jump heading to Bats, Guy took the lead and set the jump at the crossover leading to the Hillier jump. He then set the next jump to Hillier.

We penetrated to just past the 1900 foot mark, and turned the dive (started out with 3300 & 3400 in my tanks). Total dive time was 110", max depth 104 feet.

Deco on 30% was 25". 6" at 30 foot, around 6 at 20 foot after switching to O2, and then around 12 at 10 foot.

We plan on repeating this dive next week, as it was most magnificent and very pretty. I also plan on taking a stage to allow better penetration on short fills.
