One of the hardest things to do, is to go diving under the ice, right after a nice trip to the Mexico cavezzzzz… Alas, if we want to dive, we suck it up, and do it. :P
Myself, Steve, Frankie, and Eric B. went for a spin, at the quarry. There was already a hole, which was good, since our chainsaw needs a little bit of TLC. I am also really happy to see that our “runway” tradition has caught on. It’s so much easier to get in and out of. :)
I didn’t bring the UW camera with me, so this post will seem a little less interesting, I’m sure. :)
We got changed in the cabin, with the wood stove going, which was really nice. Of course, all of our undergarments and drysuits shrink in the winter, so we had to deal with that, too (riiiiiiiiight… it couldn’t have a thing to do with too many cupcakes).
We got in, swam over to the plane, then past the habitat, to the boat, and then back to lingering around the plane, for a while.
There really wasn’t a whole lot of excitement, but we did get to go diving, so that is a good thing!
Here is an old picture of the plane… and, in open water…
Bottom Time: 45 mins.
Max. Depth: 47′
Water Temp.: 37F
Of course, there was the mandatory selfie, too…
…and… showing off my new Ladies First hoodie!
There was also some after-dive chatter…
…and… since we were dreaming of Mexico, we opted to go to Mucho Burrito, for dinner!
