Re: 1000 dives vs. 30 years
Aw Geeze...Does anyone know how deep Bushman's Hole in Africa is?  I think it's 850 or so... ;D
My name is Lisa and I'm a SCUBAholic. It's been toooo long since my last dive!

Re: 1000 dives vs. 30 years
"Bushman's Hole, on the edge of the Kalahari Desert in South Africa, is one of the strangest places on Earth. It's a prehistoric crater on an otherwise endless track of desert, and for an elite but extreme fraternity of explorers, what happened there is the stuff of myth and legend.

(ABC News)The terrible beauty of the place can't be seen from the air, or even the ground. But if you trace the walls down, you reach a tiny pool covered in algae. Keep going, through a narrow shaft running for another 150 feet, and finally it all opens into a vast freshwater cavern tall enough to hold the Eiffel Tower, and deep enough -- nearly 1,000 feet -- to mesmerize the most experienced, technical cave divers in the world."

Just one of many websites.    http://abcnews.go.com/Primetime/story?id=2963264&page=1

Re: 1000 dives vs. 30 years
im not into  cave diving but that sounds cool enough even for a purely fish fan like myself.
&quot;Dont make me choose.....you wont win..&quot; wise words to the wife.<br />&quot;is it more important to protect the innocent, or Punish the guilty,That is, after all, why we punish the guilty&quot;

                            THANKS LISA! It was indeed, a good adventure. The wreck of the Haliburton off Utila is a cool wreck, upright, intact, easy to penetrate, (easy penetration is, always good) with a skeleton of a whaleshark off its starboard beam and a skeleton of a dolphin off its bow. In cruising thru the wheelhouse, attached to the wheel are an interesting spectrum of finds, multiple gals thong panties, picture of Christ with the saying on it, "Jesus was a pirate" dont recall ever learning that in religion classes as a kid :-\ head of a plastic doll, legs of a plastic doll, guys swim trunks, some beads, and a variety of other stuff. I think it was kind of like a shrine, and as such I respected it. I figured it was a shrine right away, by the importance the wheel represents to a ship, and the fact that gals thongs were attached to it. I remember wanting to build a shrine myself, to having removed a gals thong or two, but I'm getting off topic. I'll save that for another post.
                            It was a pretty good winter leading up to my 1000th, freezing rain on the Impulse on Isle Royale in Oct. (ok, that whole month sucked)  but then with a double dip on the Spiegel Grove Thanksgiving morning, )(141' and 92',,,, missed not having my pony on that one :-\) followed up by the Govoner's River Walk (a multiple wreck trec on one cylinder) blowing along in the currect over 4-5 wrecks in Riveria Beach Fla. (one of my all time favorite wreck dives) 3 dives in the MOA, 15 ice dives, heading down to Utila to hit the 1000th, then back up here the next weekend to slip beneith the ice with Joe and Dave (350' out) one last time on Lake Harriet. Dont recall why Steve couldn't join us for the last icing, the "wife" probably had some windows for him to wash or something  :-* I have enjoyed hitting the diving pretty hard over the last year, with 112 dives logged and with spring here and the lakes open, I think I'll keep the pace going. I'll go get the Impulse this next weekend, so if you'd like to hit some dives let me know.        THANKS!      TRINITY
