Postby George Dasher » Oct 11, 2005 7:56 am

What was (or is) Underwater Speleology?

And how does one get reprints?

Thanks!

Ooops!

Guess I asked a stupid question. Sorry! But thanks for the reply.

I should have gone to the CDS website first.

You know, for some reason I thought you had to be a cave diver to join the Cave Diving Section.

And if I get involved in one more expensive so-called "high risk" sports, God is going to make me walk around with a big sandwich sign that says, "I am stupid."

Skiing, mountain biking, caving, and diving are enough.

One has to pick and choose their expensive, time-consuming hobbies.

Hey Georgie,

I have a friend that has a T shirt that says, "I'm with Stupid." But the big arrow points down, not to the side.

I've decided bicycling is MUCH more dangerous that caving. I'm not quite willing to say that about cave diving, though.

George you have two good options:

The first, become a cave diver because of its skills and techniques which will make you a better caver and a better diver.

The second, a big sandwich sign and "big sandwiches" will make you a fortune at the remote dive sites.

All kidding aside, joining the CDS gets you membership PLUS "UWS" at a rate less than most popular magazine subscriptions that offer ads and not much else. /Ken

You know, I always considered the CDS Session at Convention the "secret" exploration session.

Most people realize that both the US and International Exploration Sessions can be pretty good, but they don't realize that the Cave Diving Session can also have some very GOOD exploration talks.

They are a hundred feet apart.
So I've only been able to swim to four or five of them using my cave snorkle plus I need to buy a mask to see them better! /K

PS: No mas!
