Loc: Oceans lakes world
Here I am basically a solo diver. Why? Becuase I'm the only diver for a LOONG way. There are tons of streams and lakes and rivers in this town, which is very small. Our local reservoir which over 6 million gal. of water spew from has always tempted me. No one, no one has ever seen the bottom of it, so I grabbed my favorite set of equipment, and jumped in. WOW! Lotsa stuff. Big fish. An oil drum, (???)the front of a car, (?!?!?!?) and old boat parts. Going again next week, gonna take pictures. Anyway, is there anyone in Central Texas who enjoys diving? Don't get me wrong, I enjoy solo, only people who know the history of the town may enjoy the little secrets of the lake. If not, its nothing to me, I'll go it alone.

Don't you think solo diving is kind of dangerous?

Hey Ross, I'm just wondering where you dive. I'm in Ontario and looking for a dive buddy for the summer. I've done some river diving, tons of lake diving and some ocean diving, so if you are in Ontario let me know.

Hey Ross- Drop me an email, let me know your rough location. I bet we are close enough to buddy up.
