Yup, don't miss London for one min.
Nope, best decision we ever made was to flee!
I left when I was 6 month's old
On topic, I'm planning on being at NDAC on Sunday.
We've a few OD and SD trainees looking to complete drills, but I'm hoping to just do a bit of diving, to be honest.
It's a long way to go to go up and down in 10M a couple of times and then get out...
I'm based in Loano, Italy, for a while so plan to spend a bit of time getting to know the coast better. Diving Saturday morning and maybe a night dive same day if we can get the numbers up.
Check their opening times. They be been booting divers out during October between 2 and 3 pm for fear fest!!!

After a breezy weekend we are hoping the sea has calmed down and cleared for next weekend.
Here is a short video on Chesil Beach if anyone thought it was dive-able on Saturday. I wonder if the star of the show appreciated just how close he came to being an incident.
Going to play in Wraysbury this Saturday 4th Nov with a couple of others. Others are welcome to come along.
I may be interested, will see what I have on.
I should have said what I want to do this weekend...
Going to play with a hybrid DIR + Sidemount rig. That's where there's a twinset on the back on a normal backplate and two Ali80 stages slung using sidemount bungees from the backplate. Theory is it's more streamlined, balanced, and the stages are under control, being pulled up and back, along the body's centreline. Looks great when Steve Martin flew one in his video. Loads of configuration questions though, not least how it'll affect longhose deployment... Anyway, what's Wraysbury for if it's not dicking around with kit.
It depends on how you stow the long hose
Either you stop fucking about pretending to be GUE / DIR or you stop giving a fuck and do what is best for you. You can't do both.
FWIW I dived stages like that when I was on BM (lean left, rich right) and have carried this into SM. I am yet to die.
I think I've long since given up the pretence! After all I fitted an additional D-ring to my belt...
TBH it's fun buggering around with the kit as you need to be able to handle the stuff in the water. All left is fine and dandy; will get crowded when there's three or four Ali80s on the front.
There's a lot to learn from those sidemounters!
Just go and buy your bloody rebreather & stop trying to delay it.
Makes me pleased that I'm just a fat old recreational diver,happy where I am and with no pretensions to achieve "Dive God" status. I enjoy the banter on the forum, but am happy not to take it, too seriously. I only hope that people new to diving realise that they don't have to follow the wing/backplate /twins/rebreather philosophy just because it is on the tinterweb
Indeed, I'm led to believe they also need a scooter.
Did we ever fix a date for the flooded drysuit experiment at Wraysbury?
How about slipping some crayfish in for good measure??
You do, they do, all divers do.
