Trevor - hope things are still going strong for you with the diving - I've been on a forced hiatus (work) but am looking to get back in the water soon. There are a few DIR types up here in Bako, need to plan a meet and greet.
Hit me up on email, as I don't make it on DMX much these days (still my preferred community though). Send me a message at email@example.com - we can do a number exchange and set a time to meet
Hey man I friended you on S.B. a while ago then neglected to follow up. Since we both live in Bakersfield and seem to be divers in the "DIR" vein, it seems like we should be cooperating. My regular dive is Vet's park in Redondo Beach, which i do most fridays. I leave early, meet my brother/teamate there, burn a set of HP100s and get back to Bako around 2 or 3pm. We are both GUE-F level with tech passes and 10 years+ diving experience. We're not picky about agency as long as the safety fundamentals are compatible. I have a bunch of diving friends but ALL of them live below the grapevine, so it would be good to have someone Bakersfield based to add to the buddy pool. I got 70 dives in this last calendar year, with a local buddy i could probably push that to 100 this next year. Who's with me? PM me if you want to dive. I"ll drive.
