Trying to plan a full day of diving on the Wed before Thanksgiving. In the planning stages for a full day of diving - probably State Park spring(s), but open for suggestions. Looking for buddies interested in multiple dives at multiple sites(Troy, Manatee, Wes Skiles, etc). I’ve been to all of these sites several times each but want to add to my best dive year ever. 59 dives in 2015 and counting! I’m located in the Gainesville area, but open to ocean if seas/weather are good. I’m Rescue, Cavern, and Nitrox certified.

Well, I was just offered to spend the week in a beach condo in Daytona. I’m available to dive the Tues/Wed of the previous week however(11/17 or 11/18).

Hey Eric,

I am just getting back in the water after recovering from carpal tunnel surgery and would like to do a couple of fun dives before starting intro to cave training. Please let me know if you are interested... (I have cavern certification now but don’t have the cert in my hand yet - it may possibly arrive today or tomorrow).

David,
Curtis & I are diving Jug Hole(cavern) on Tuesday am using nitrox. I have time restrictions as I need to leave there by 12:30 to pick my kids up from school. Maybe you two could meet up and dive more after that as he’s driving from the Melbourne area. Otherwise, I can do a spring dive on Wed the 18th. My only issue is that my time is limited to while my kids are at school. I can leave home(Gainesville area) about 7am and need to be back by 2pm. I saw you were in G’ville area also so if this Wed and my time squeeze works for you, just let me know.

Thanks for suggesting the location Curtis. Wish I had more time(and better air fills). I enjoyed the dives and appreciate your knowledge, experience, and skills. Maybe we can meet for diving more often than twice a year. Lol.

I think that should be arranged.
