I want to practice basic fundamentals like buoyancy control and setting trim. I need a dive buddy that wants to work on skills with focus on being a solid, skilled diver. I plan on going to Martha’s quarry and Penny royal and work at being a better diver.

I wish I lived closer to you. I’d like to practice my skills, too, to become a better diver. Any chance you could come to Connecticut on the weekends? I know, too long a drive.

Well, along with posting a forurm request, I would suggest you also do a search for dive buddies in your area and send them e-mails directly. Sometimes forum posts are overlooked as people don’t sign in every day. A direct e-mail might get you the results you’re looking for.

 I’m not sure how far you are from Laurel Lake in Kentucky, but I’m down there a lot. If I’m not teaching then I’m there diving. If it’s not to far of a drive for you let me know.

Thanks for the response. I have a friend up in Mass. I am tiring to get him to start diving. Where do you do most of your dives?

I am absolutely in the same boat...unfortunately this metaphorical boat means I haven’t been in a literal boat in months. I am so rusty, I should probably get a tetanus shot.

I’m willing to do some driving, but phew, TN is pretty far! Although, I have always wanted to see Grand Ole Opry. Mostly just to fix the spelling on all the signs. CT is a bit closer...if you guys don’t find anyone closer, let me know and maybe we can work out a little road trip action.

Looking for people in our own areas is probably the easiest option, but I don’t want to get in a rut just diving in MD! I want to make a few mix CDs and drive 8 hours to go just feels right :)
