More time in Cave Country on my Hammerhead of course!

I had the opportunity of spending 10 days in Cave Country helping to teach another CCR Cave Course earlier in the month.  With 3 CCR cave students, 2 Instructors and an Instructor Trainer, it was a large fun group!  We spent a lot of time in the water and did some great dives!  Lot's of time in Ginnie Springs, Little River and Peacock Springs!

We did several long dives - 2hrs or more, and for a cave diving course, were able to help the students see parts of the caves that many seasoned OC cave divers rarely visit!  We did have a few exciting moments, like when we did the Lips Bypass in the Devil's system.  (Truly not recommended for CCR divers unless they happen to be diving sidemount CCR! )  July Springs was beautiful as usual, and the Hill 400-Rollercoaster circuit was lovely as always!

Mike Robinson (Utah) , Mats Ytterstad (Norway), and Doug Dobransky (Ohio) all passed and completed the course with flying colors!

Had an awesome time with my oldest son Joshua and hanging with Phil Short.  All in all, it was a great time and I can't wait to get back there again soon!
