    Well, if the owners of Rock Lake were to make it more available to the diving PUBLIC, vs. just the diving Instructors, we may have joined you! :D

    We did have some fun at the BH/Perch, and that is nothing unusual which is why we will be down there again, likely in the Nov/Dec timeframe.

    Ron makes a good underwater scooter. It takes away some of the envy I have for not owning an X.... I think I'm going to box Ron up and ship him to Tahoe next year for the Tahoe Benchmarks. :wink: ... I'm pretty sure he can outrun that Cuda that's on the market. :D Thanks for helping conserve some gas on my twofer dive with you guys on Sunday, Ron! :)

    The Venus statue dive was funny as hell to watch! It was true (semi) organized chaos. :)

    Rock Lake was very nice. I've got some ideas for dive plans for next time there. I'll be showing my rock samples to a geologist next week. We definitely have some metamorphic rocks that would suggest volcanic activity and the gypsum suggests a shallow sea (most likely after active volcanic activity.)... There's been something new on every dive there so far this year. :)

    James - if you need some volcanic rock, just come over to my house. :D We live on the northwest side of ABQ, right on the volcano flow of the 5 volcanos and Petroglyph National Park. (the cones are still just barely visible, but the lava is everywhere over here). I bet if you dug in my backyard about 3' deep you would hit solid lava. :eyebrow:

    we live just south of Piedras Marcadas Canyon on the map.

    :D

    I am here for your amusement James! :D

    I don't suppose anyone has been down to BH to figure out where Burt moved her?

    I'll be over there on Nov. 15th and will check. If I see Burt then or at the next time, I'll talk with him and see what the objection is about have "stuff" down there.

    One of the main reasons that I spent some dinero to buy Venus is to begin placing quality objects down there. Some of the small bright plastic "stuff" looks trashy and junky. I hope no one objects to Venus and the like.

    Kevin,

    Do you think Burt removed the statue? He told me he was going to put it in a better spot, but I did not hang out and verify any of that.

    Is Burt a driving force behind removing stuff in the hole? If so, we should get some clarification about what *STUFF* is objectionable, and why.

    ...and why he gets to be a driving force. Was his Sandia-based dive shop identified as the guardians of the BH by Santa Rosa? I assume Santa Rosa should be the decision maker in this, since they are the ones who own and run it.

    Personally, I find the graffiti on the walls more offensive than the little plastic items. I don't know who is taking stuff out, but I wish they would stop. I miss the old "golfball museum" shelf with GI Joe and ScubaBarbie.
