    The only thing close to a cave cert I have is owning some LP95 tanks with DIN valves. Darn...

    I'm a fairly new cave diver in San Marcos and would love to participate even in a support role. Unfortunately, I don't meet the desired criteria, but best of luck in your search! Looks like a good project.

    Surface support does not need a cave cert. You still get to learn about the cave and cave diving.

    I might be interested in surface support. Do you know how much time it will require, if it will be weekends or weekday, etc?

    We all have day jobs. This is a weekend volunteer effort deal.

    David, I know of a few folks that meet the requirements, but then you also know them too. The ones that come to mind is David F. and Trey L.

    Trey let me know he was not interested in diving with us. Instead he used David Baker to push a permit through an alternative approval process to JW. He was granted a temporary permit which is interfering with our groups ability to complete our research in this cave. In addition, he told at least one of his members know that he does not approve of them diving for both groups.

    We don't discriminate. We accept the help of any qualified divers. You can participate on any project in addition to ours.
