DPVz

Sunday, September 14th, 2014 ~

I wasn’t sure whether or not I was going to dive today, since I had a bit of an issue with my arm, the previous Monday (minor surgical procedure – yes, everything is fine). I did want to give it a try, so I figured that joining in on Steve’s DPV-1 class was a good idea. Of course, I brought the camera along, too.

Valve drills, stowing drills, OOG + towing drills, and all of that fun stuff. I stayed in the background, taking some photos, and stretching my arm out, a little. I wondered if the suit squeeze would bother it, but it didn’t. *Phew*

(Don’t worry, KK, we wear drysuits – I didn’t get the sutures wet) 😛

The team, on the trigger…

We scootered over to the Gaskin, then right back in, with some more skills, and an ascent. I can’t give away all of the fabulous skillz that the course ensues, so I will be a little bit vague with my details!

It was a fabulous day, and although the visibility was pretty stinky, it felt really good to be in the water! The camera does make the vis look better than it actually was.

Bottom Time: 1 hour, 38 mins.
Max. Depth: 55′
Water Temp.: 68F
Visibility: Stinky – like gym socks

Way to go, team! Well done!
