Crater lake does not allow outside boats. There is no way to get them to the surface. I think they helicoptered in the jet boats, and there are some row boats, or there were.
There is no way to drive to the lake, just a steep climb down by foot. The jet boat tours are run by the Park...
Seems like the market is shrinking. Pueblo does not appear to have a LDS, when that went out of business I do not know. Honestly Nirtox is kinda foolish in the Co market considering most of our lakes are shallow or get very dark after 30'. I am surprised that A1 has stopped selling it...
There are zip lines which are fun.
You can rent a boat but watch out for the currents.
You could go fishing like an afternoon charter.
You could do a booze cruise.
Hanging out at the pool can be fun and relaxing.
You could do some shopping.
You could rent bikes, just be careful...
My LDS treats me well regardless of where I buy equipment. They recognize that I am a valuable customer who has purchased training and other goods with them. I may not purchase everything from them but that's not a factor. That is how a good LDS treats people.
John suggested how to install...
We dive some fairly crummy sites. If I can see my buddy 5 feet away I am a happy camper. If I can not we may end the dive early. If we have to hold hands vis is worthless and a second dive is not forth coming. :D
I will return anything I find and leave things I find with the local shop if practical.
I do not like loosing things and do my best to return lost stuff to the owner. A bolt snap.... not so much but anything of value absolutely.
Do unto others and all that.
3 is the new 2! I use three as one is attached to my pony and I use that on vacation. With airline baggage restrictions I may stop carrying extra gear.
I have never used my backup for real. But I breath off it frequently.
Funny loose batteries are a nono but batteries in laptops, phones, ipods (heh try to remove those), walkmans are OK??? So loose batteries bad, installed batteries good.....LOL! This whole mess seems beyond absurd!
So water is a nono?
Stay tuned, this will likely change... again.
At this point I would suggest an hour min soak with mild soap then a rinse. It does not take long to do this, you just need to start! A freshwater dive works as well. I bet you have some salt crystal buildup that will require a good soak to dislodge. Do not soak the first stage, just a good...
Seriously you need to rethink your setup. You need a primary and an Octo, that's all. If you have an air2 type of octo maybe a reg bunged to your pony so three regs at most IF you have a air2 octo.
You do not need an SPG for your pony. Just check it before you dive. If you must have this...
Waterhorse is who we used diving out of San Diego.
San Diego SCUBA Diving, Charter Boat Dives. Dive Trips
La Jolla is a great shore dive but doing it with a local guide is a good idea.

My first thought was Catalina. Its a great place to spend...
LOL! I not only buy online I have my gear serviced online as well. The difference is I am not driving an hour one way twice, and its half the price. They do a great job, and send me my original parts so I can inspect them for wear and determine if my service intervals are too long/short...
As long as you can get a rebuild kit for it your good to dive. I am positive that kit or the parts are currently available. Unfortunately shops love to say things like.... old as dirt, but we can sell you X. Find a different service shop, or you can go mail order. Scubatoys or TDI among others.
When I started diving a decade ago+ these were cheap good fins around $50 new. Now they are made out of country and cost almost three times as much. It is VERY difficult to find where things are made. But there are less products made in the US, a unfortunate growing trend. Ironically this...
