    So today we watched the balloons being filled at Central Park West for the Macy's Thanksgiving parade. They used this truckload of helium to fill Baby Yoda, Snoopy and a few others.

    Since day one of my RB training as a student, as a diver and a RB instructor I have always used a HUD and felt like it was an integral part of a CCR. Now days not everyone feels like a HUD is essential and is an optional accessory on a CCR. How many here feel like a HUD is an...

    Muddy Santa Fe

    As I sat on my porch two days ago I noticed the Santa Fe River was "muddy" looking. I have never seen it muddy before. When I dived Devil's Ear on Saturday we had to swim through muddy water to get to the log at the entrance. After talking to a couple of folks who are always studying the river...

    DPV use at Ginnie

    I have received an inquiry regarding DPV training from 2 guys who were riding DPV's at Ginnie 20 years ago with no DPV certification. I recall that at one point old geezers were grandfathered in and Ginnie did not require the DPV cert for them. Is that policy still in place?

    Air or Nitrox as a diluent?

    More and more I am seeing/hearing about CCR divers using nitrox 30, 31, 32 etc. as a diluent in their CCR's for dives at and around 100 feet. I fail to see the advantage of this. Anyone care to explain an advantage?

    Petrel One Battery Issue

    I started a cave dive yesterday with my Petrel 1 with the battery icon showing 50%. I did not look at the voltage. I had an Energizer Ultimate Lithium battery in it, and the computer was set for that battery. Moments after getting into the water the computer went blank. Would not restart. Got...

    Zero to Hero another look

    The recent Zero-to-Hero thread piqued my interest in reviewing this recurring issue and I did not want to hijack it. I am not advocating the Zero-to-Hero route, never have. But I have successfully run a handful of divers through a cave Zero-to-Hero class. Before I commit to taking these folks...
