    Lake Amistad

    in response to the PMs I've received regarding diving at Goodenough, here's a link to our project website page that clearly states our position on non-team activities. Goodenough Springs Exploration Project

    Lake Amistad

    Rock Lake is about 10+/-hours from AUS. If the landowner has the same policy for admission, Adv OW is the ONLY credential that was accepted.

    What are fire ants?

    I am an ardent environmentalist and do not condone the use of pesticides in general. HOWEVER, in the case of FAs, I advocate the use of the most heinous chemicals available. Forget the Amdro and other 'birth control' nonsense. Purchase a product called Orthene (mfg by Chevron). Use very...

    Aquarena Center demolition scheduled!!

    well, the USACOE site is having issues this morning, so can't read the complete report... BUT, from what little I was able to review, this is a large-scale project that will have major impacts to the structures that are currently sited in the immediate proximity of Spring Lake. Personally...

    Lake Travis Re-Opening

    so, do you also reckon that opening the gates sucked out all the giant catfish that lived at the base of the dam...pity, they were such interesting creatures.

    Search/Rescue in Austin

    is a Search and RECOVERY team, not rescue. A not so subtle distinction.

    Stage Dive Planning

    what's worth seeing at 110' for 40 min? Isn't all the Carib scenery pretty much the same old stuff...parrotfish, soldierfish, yadda yadda, snore... This is presumably a vacation, right?...why not just stick to NDL/single 80/snorkeldorkel dives and drinks with little umbrellas in them and you...

    How to prevent seasickness...

    motion sickness, and I am severely so, simply looking at the horizon and eating ginger snaps isn't go to do squat for you. For me, this works: 1. Use the Scopaline patch or Scopace oral. Try these before your vacation to observe side-effects. 2. Avoid spciy, greasy foods. Eat bland, light...

    Greenpeace None Too Happy with Mighty O Sinking...

    pro-pollution camp. The sooner humans evolve and adapt to elevated levels of contaminants, the more fit we will be to function in an environment that is increasingly less pristine. We are far too fragile an organism at present and need to be introduced to a broad spectrum of metals...

    "Felt" bikes...anybody know anything?

    like a major problem, I wouldn't ride a bike that did that.

    The Dark Side :)

    Why is the crotch strap a problem? I have Halcyon SS buckles and don't see much of a problem with disturbing the cylinder surface.

    Buying gear from Ebay

    wow, what a profound thought. I believe you're the first person to propose this compelling argument. However, I routinely get fills online at reduced prices and they're always at exactly the rated service pressure of the cylinder. Trimix cost savings are especially attractive. If you're...

    Newbie, Poor Diver or Jerk?

    is impressive...divers with 30, 50, 80 dives expounding at length on who's doing what incorrectly. Imposing a 10 sq ft buffer zone is a new one on me. I like creative thinking...it's useless, but creative. Lots to learn here.

    Aquarena Springs

    The tuition for the Science Diver course was worth it. The class was informative, fun, and I met some folks I'm still keeping in touch with. Diving in Spring Lake requires excellent buoyancy control to keep from making a mess of the vis and disturbing rare and endangered species. If it was...
