    :hm: Does this include both Spring and Fall or just two consecutive Fall Megadives?

    Two consecutive megadives. Time of year doesn't matter. You're a noob again! :D

    Megadiver's Attending and Food List
    Post that your attending, pick something to bring or offer to help out, and I'll add your name to the list at the end of the week.
    Hope this helps!

    Cardzard and Roxanne - A cooler full of water, diet and non diet sodas, and juices for the kids for the group dinner. Then for brkft, 18ct eggs, precooked bacon, sausage and ham, and some asst veggies for the omlettes. And last but not least, Glow sticks for the galaxy dive.
    Scuba_Jenny and Hermit Crab - s'more's fixins' and other stuff
    jeandiver - Chips, salsa, brootworst (as always)... Oh , charcoal and charcoal lighter fluid stuff. Oh , also potato salad too. (SMILE)
    scorpion2012 and Montana - Charcoal but it will need fluid and ????
    tvtech-diver - Big pack of eggs.
    divingsiren - Desserts, water, snacks, beer...and a bottle of rum for Jenny!
    scubafool and tent punking crew of 3 - You can put us down for firewood, Cook pot and propane and tent punking supplies.
    Dennis - Cook pot and propane.
    Brewone0to and Shelli -
    JahJahwarrior and crd_kats -
    NetDoc and mselenaous - vodka, Kahlua and stickers.
    joystershell and megamikey - MegaMuffins and a package of hamburglers from Costco, (think it's about one or two dozen patties?)
    And about 15 more who checked in on FB, but still need to check in here. :D

    For those who always ask what to bring. Here are some ideas...

    Meat items for the grill
    (let's keep it to Hamburgers, hotdogs, brats, and chicken breast and buns) (We're trying to keep it simple so it doesn't take forever to cook for the group) (If you have something else you were thinking about and want to cook that yourself, that's great! Some have brought friers or smokers and added to the meat items that way.)
    Eggs (We never seem to have enough.)
    Items for the omlettes
    (additional meats, peppers, mushrooms, onions, salsa, wraps, cheese, etc.)
    Items for Breakfast
    (Juices, fruit, etc.)
    Charcoal (self starting)
    Condiments (cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, ketchup, mustard, mayo, relish, BBQ sauce etc.)
    Aluminum Foil Serving Pans (to hold the cooked meat)
    Paper towels
    Qt. Freezer baggies
    for the omelettes(Make sure they are the freezer kind or they will melt)
    Bottled water
    Side dishes (casseroles, baked beans, potato salad, macaroni salad, cole slaw, chips and dips/salsa, fruit salad, green salads w/dressing, veggie tray w/dip, etc.)
    Deserts (Oh please don’t forget the deserts!)
    Tiki torches and fuel (for around the fire)
    Fire wood for the camp fire.
    Items for the rum tote
    It is looking a little scarce and Moonie would be disappointed. If anyone wants to sacrifice some rum for the rum tote gods they will appreciate it. If not we will just have to have a new dance for newbies around the fire to please them.

    We also need volunteers to help out during the weekend. THANKS!!!!
    If we all pitch in and take a task, it makes for a fun weekend for everyone. :kiss2:

    If someone needs ICE on the way in, there is a self-serve ICE machine when you leave High Springs to turn on the road to go to Ginnie.
    In addition to Ginnie's Springs store and dive shop,
    Air Fills:
    Cave Country Diving - Home in High Springs where Salvo used to be.
    (US Hwy 441)
    There is a Winn-Dixie in High Springs , open 7 AM to 10 PM every day.
    There is also a CVS Pharmacy right next to the Hardees.
    Here's a link back to the weekend rundown for additional info.

    If you have any questions, just ask. One of us will respond.

    Not sure if we are gonna make it or not. I have a job now and I would lose two days of overtime pay. Would much rather be at the Megadive than working, but it is only temporary and gotta get while the gettin's good..

    Just realized I conveniently have no classes on the 26th and have no plans for the long weekend, so good chance I'll make my way up for this! I think I got a friend who's interested and I'll try and bring some key lime pie for Friday night at least, unless someone magically has a freezer plus other things.

    I'll also be jonesing for some cave diving if anyone's looking for a buddy :D
