    Twilli says aren't most caves cut off except to NACD members? Are you NACD? Twilli says panic and of course silting up a cave as well as improper equipment can have devastating results in a cave.

    Twilli studied a case were some kids used a ski rope and (don't remember the cave) the rope floated up into a crack and became wedged and they silted and drown. Aren't most cave roped off now?

    Twilli used to use a lot of air in some of those caves due to the high anxiety.

    Are you using a rebreather on your shallow dives? I really want tone of those especially since they are so much cheaper now.
    You sure are cocky for a starving pilgrim.

    There are a few association that train and certify cave divers. My training is with INATD, when properly trained and by keeping a cool head it is not only fun but breath takenly beautiful.
    Thinking there is only one certifing agency would be like saying there is only one school for HVAC.
    Caves are no place for the untrained, or excitable types. It sounds like Twilli chose the proper avenue by staying out of the Caves.

    Do not have a rebreather, so expensive the last time I looked (Years ago).

    On shallow dives I sometimes use Hooka, saves weight but limits mobility. Also has to be a "Open Water" area. But then it's not SCUBA, you have surface supplied air.

    I am Nitrox certified as well, I would recommend that training to all divers. It is just a matter of adding oxygen to the compressed air. You feel much better after the dive and it allows you to stay down longer. Depth is restricted but for dives less than 100 feet it is great.

    I have several side certs but for main line I am working on Dive Master. Completed Rescue cert a few years ago.

    Part of my business is Search and Recovery. The biggest job was a 65' WWII PT boat. In WWII is was a 72' elco and had the designation of PT 48, fought in Pacific theater, served with PT109 until.

    It was sold after the war then converted to a dinner boat. Sank during the hurricains of 2004 and 2005. The first year someone else dove on it and rigged it wrong causing damage to the bow. I was able to burrow twice through the mud under it to sling it for the cranes. The gators were watching, one was 12'+.

    I was going to attach pics but they are too big, I'll work on them if anyone interrested for future post.

    Twilli hasn't been on a dive in many years and would certainly love to have an expierenced partner such as yourself, pictures will never do some scenes justice as you know. But Twilli would love to see them.
