Skills At The Quarry!

January 14th, 2008 ~

Well.. it was another fine day at Morrison’s Quarry yesterday. The sun was shining, and we headed out for a dive. Steve, JJ, and I went for an early dip! Due to our warm spell last week, the ice had thinned out, and we were actually able to enter without the chainsaw. We entered on the second beach area, beside the stairs, tied off our line, and down we went.

We did our valve drills and air shares, and decided to run some line down to the car. The car sits at about 118′, but we ran the line to 88′, and could see it just fine. Steve had the video camera rolling too, so I didn’t bother bringing my little camera. We headed back up, and over to the plane, at 25′, and worked on some more skills. I was backfinning away, while Steve and JJ did some bottle rotations and handing off bottles. I started to get a bit of a chill, so they came back to the entrance, let me go, then the fellas went back for more skills.

Bottom Time (for me): 40 mins.
Max. Depth. ~ 88′
Water Temp. ~ 38 at the plane, 39 at the car
Vis. ~ 40′ ish

After watching the video, and Steve telling me… I noticed that my trim was a bit off today. I’m not sure if it had something to do with the fact that I was tired, but I’m going to have to smack myself in de butt!

Until next week!
