Starting Penny’s Full Cave Class

September 4, 2008

Penny started her full cave course on Thursday, and the dives went pretty well for her.  Primarily she was focused on skills and dives to show proficiency, and received kudos from her instructor.

I went diving with Ernest, and we checked out the full Horseshoe circuit, as well as another jump on the left of the mainline just up past the upstream segment of the Horseshoe.

I’ve always preferred going off the beaten path and can see getting into sidemount at some point.  Ernest was able to get through places with his rig much easier than I could in backmount… granted… it’s still fun to bury my face in the sand and grind through the tight spots, but sidemount would open up more passages that for now I can only peer longly down.
