I just don't log dives
Thanks guys, but without any takers for Sunday I think I'll stay local instead. I was ultimately hoping to line up buddies for Sat, Sat night and Sun. Without that, it's not really worth the cost of the 3h+ drive.

I'll see everyone at the Fall M&G.

OK, Jim. It is a sacrifice for me to brave the mobs at Gilboa on the weekends; since you're not going, I'm not going. If you can ever break away during the week, I'll be there. If not, I'll see you at the M & G in Oct. Sorry, mrneglet; why don't you make plans to attend the GLWC Meet & Greet Oct. 14 - 16. We have a great time and it's a good way to get new dive buddies.

I know it is, and I sure do appreciate it. You're a swell buddy! But without the certainty of buddies for the remainder of the weekend, it's just not worth the trip especially with today's gas prices. My schedule has been out of sync with all of my dive buddies all summer!

Sorry mrneglet. I would have welcomed diving with you. As Denny mentioned, please consider coming to the Fall M&G in October (see stickied thread for details).

Jim, I'll plan to be there for the Meet and Greet the weekend of Oct 14-16. In the meantime, I'd love to try Gilboa with the group; my LDS doesn't like them (something about going over 5mph in the parking lot.... ) so the club doesn't dive there.

Sounds like they don't like the owners policies. He is a stickler and can come off abrasive, but to pass on such an awesome dive site for that is just petty.

I look forward to diving with you at the Meet & Greet.

Mike is strict about the speed limit thing. I have been yelled at as well. Not recently!

I just deal with the speed limit and slow to a crawl when I first pull into the lot.

Yup. His quarry, his rules. It's an awesome dive site and it amazes me that people would stay away simply because the owner can be a bit brash about safety. I can find things I don't like about Haigh and White Star as well, but they're all awesome dive sites. I want them ALL to stay open so we have local, inexpensive places to dive; therefore, I'll gladly follow their rules and give them business when I can.
