Diving first weekend in Oct?

Discussion in 'DIVE Buddy Board' started by Sushi Boy, Oct 3, 2017.

    I need to bag my October dive before the month gets away from me. Plus I'm going through Hawaii withdrawals. Anybody up for diving this Saturday or Sunday? Not picky about where.

    I will say traffic getting to Blue lagoon was horrible due to some major construction on I45 a couple weeks ago. Viz at twin lakes last weekend was about 8” above 10 foot, pitch black but slightly clearer under 10 foot, bring a light and a good wetsuit. That being said, I wouldn’t mind going.

    Once option might be to go to Lake Longhorn. Not saying the conditions would be any different u/w, but at least we could check the place out.

    I might join if it's Sunday. Have a set of fins I want to try now that I can use two.

    Peter, Sunday's good for me. I just need to be home mid-afternoon. Any preference as to where?

    I wouldn’t mind twin lakes, at least I know it’s reasonbly clear deep, just cold and dark. I’d be up for either

    No preference, I don't know the lakes around Houston so it's an adventure.

    Groovy. Anybody else wanna join us?

    Seaagg05, what water temps have you been seeing recently?
  13. Seaagg05

    Seaagg05 Vice President Staff Member

    It’s was in the low to mid 80s at the surface, thermocline at 8’. Temperature in the low 70s I think. We Were not down there long enough for my computer to stabilize. Maybe divingdoug has an opinion on the water temp?

    I'm not going to make it. I drove my car off the road and wrenched my back. Can't lift tanks into car.

    Oh no PegLeg! Glad you aren’t too messed up. Get plenty of rest!

    I should be good in a few days. I still have some good drugs left over from SAMMC.
