A buddy and I were planning on our second annual New Years Day Dive, but he told me today it is supposed to be a high temp of 33 that day. We aren't THAT brave/desperate - YET :)

Ah hocky sticks its not that cold yet and its fun to have snow and ice freeze to ya as you get out!

Ok story time!... once not to many years ago a few buddys and I were on Norfork for our new years dive and we each had another buddy to help tender for us as it was 34 and snowing out. The dive went as planned and we hit the dock 45 min later and as we came out the air started to freeze up our suits and gear. So off at a hard walk off came the gear as we were going to the change room to get out of our fast freezing suits! My buddy Mark took hold of my tank and BC as I walked by and his hand got stuck frozen and he started to yell as I was not stoping!....it was cold...:cold:
It was funny another buddy Jason had a new whites fusion dry suit and he had a hard time getting out of the thing. we put all of the BC's in the front of one of the trucks to thaw out slow mind you. It was just a fun day and I like cold weather diving anyway and after dive beer is always the best! :drunks:

I'm going to Ten Killer this year just for something out of the norm and to get ready for a trip to Thunder Bay on the Great Lakes.
