Shivering on the 49th Parallel
Monday, November 1, 2004

Turns out that the big ORGANIZED reef cleanup was on Saturday, not both days like I thought. NEXT Saturday they're doing a shore-dive reef cleanup at Turtle Reef. I took a pair of work gloves with me on the first dive and managed to bring up a chair and some bent and twisted metal. I think it must have been rain guttering or something. I didn't go very far, geographically on the first dive (on the Doc Poulson) because I would range about til I found some crap, pick it up and swim it back to the wreck near the mooring line, then go out again, and bring more back, so I ended up burning through a good 2000psi of an 80 cubic foot nitrox tank. I was down for 65 mins, and we had agreed to meet back on board at 2:30pm. (Chopper and Renee were teaching a class and going to do two dives there).

Second dive I jumped back in with my nearly empty tank and rode shotgun keepin Chopper & Renee's herd in line. I managed to stretch the 1000psi remaining for another 25 mins and finished up back onboard with about 150psi left in my tank! :-)

I'll head out again next saturday with my gloves and help with the next reef cleanup and get some pics, too.
