    I think the consensus is most of us dive wet. :(

    I look over at the drysuits every time I go into an LDS, and drool. At the price those things run, I've got too many other things to buy of a higher priority.

    But I still drool over them. :)

    Hi Rocky Mountain Oysters. If you have only used “new posts” recently you might have missed two recent changes to the RMO forum.

    First, and hard to miss, it is now a sub-sub-sub-forum ( Scubaboard.com > Regional Travel & Dive Clubs > North America > United States > Rocky Mountain Oysters). That’s cool.

    Second, but more subtle, Tech Admin have been kind enough to move several old threads from what used to be the “North America not served by the clubs” forum to the RMO forum. Browsing these old threads provides useful local info.

    Thank you Tech Admin, whoever you are.

    Schedule permitting, and whatever the water temp, I’ll come at least for the social aspect, and to make sure the seniors are represented. I’ll probably dive dry.

    Should we start a new thread for this subject? Something like “Inaugural Rocky Mountain Oyster gathering” ?

    I always wondered what it would take for the Western Slope to count :wink:

    I am in. Any weekend someone wants to dive local and needs a buddy count me in. This will be my first summer to dive. Blue Hole, Homestead, and Bonne Terre, MO are the only places I have dived so far.

    Will depend a bit upon the timing, but I'd be up for the experinece. There are a few of us here in Denver that would likely make a road trip of it... and did you say...

    BOAT??

    That is the ONLY way to explore Flaming gorge. Let's talk and set it up for maybe late Aug.... 60F water does not bother me as long as the weather is good so one is not freezing between dives.

    I'm up for any diving as my schedule permits, I haven't done any since I moved here in January, but I bought a dry suit in anticipation of the move and will dive pretty much anything, wet or dry. Just let me know and I'll try to make it. I'm starting to shrivel like a prune, it's been so long since I got wet.

    Hi johndoe5,
    By posting, you have joined. (I don't think we have any rules, other than the obvious things, like courtesy.) I assume you've seen the info in the calendar and elsewhere about the get-together at Aurora Reservoir on June 18th. Welcome back to diving.
