    What defines technical diving - and how to get there?

    I agree with everything you have said here. For quarry diving I always bring a couple of 80s with air and/or light mix with me as well as the deco bottles,, in case I desire to save my backgas or need to power my booster. The issue at a quarry is that below the thermocline the temp is about 42...

    Come to the midwest and I would be happy to take you quarry diving. You would then notice that a quarry is much more benign than the ocean. You don't have to worry about: getting blown out to sea, tide, surge, current, dangerous animals, falling to thousands of feet deep,salt eating up O...

    Why do you insist that I have no other choice of gas? Bail out bottle, buddy, go up a few feet. These are all logical and available choices in a quarry. Do you guys never dive a quarry? Kal

    Your assumption is flawed. This insructor is not DSAT savy. He thought it ,,,Jr. high level... But we all dive at our level of comfort and he allowed me to. Because there are divers that will be more advanced and more seasonsed than you or I will EVER be that have died because they didn't...

    So why did you bring it up? .So I'm forced to not have redunancy on my stage. Thanks.Why do you insist it is non-redundant? Oh yeah, once again a restriction you want to lay on me. Wild guess I guess. Sure, say don't do this , don't do that because it's not as safe as I do it. Here is what...

    Do you think this procedure goes against the manual? Do you think I have only had one instructor covering one agency? Do you think I havn't been honest to one diver that has contacted me on PM? You boys are likely as one writer said, "fanatics". Kal

    What defines technical diving - and how to get there?

    I explained this to my tech instructor,,, his advice, I can save my backgas if I desire and that is not dangerous. It is not a problem to have a side bottle with a lower MOD than my backgas. If your not comfortable breathing your side bottles you shouldn't take em. But then, he dives a...

    Say, your backgas has 32%. You go to the local quarry, max depth 110 ft. But, darn it is closed. You go somewhere else, 140 ft. depth, but they have no gas for you. Well, can you still go to the bottom safely. Sure, multiple bottles. Is it ideal, nope. Is it doable and safe, I would submit...

    What defines technical diving - and how to get there?

    I am sure you are aware that some people have gotten bent even though they stayed within all the computer parameters. There are some divers that add cushion to their dive even though "they don't need it". I never said this is the safest way. It is practical if your somewhere where you can't...

    What defines technical diving - and how to get there?

    30 ft. would get you to the MOD of the backgas. If the side bottle popped you could easily get there. Or go on the pony,, or to your buddy. If this is uncomfortable for you,,, then say no. Dive at your level of comfort. I'm not stopping you or yanking your chain about it. The original point...
