First time at Eagle's Nest. The plan was to drop in to about 170ft and look around in the cavern area. We dropped in and started looking around. I turned and saw Billy and Joe heading in the other direction. I looked at my computer and noticed that I was at 188ft. I was feeling pretty happy but was still able to do times tables in my head. Took a quick dip to 190 and headed after them. By that time, Joe was coming after me to see if I was OK. I signaled that I was good and we headed back toward Billy.

As I came back up, I felt my head clear. I figured that I must be back up to about 120ft but when I checked my computer, I was still at 161ft. Wierd sensation! We cruised around the bottom of the cavern until we got to the downstream cave entrance. We looked around there for a few minutes and started back. I saw a line arrow that was labeled "mikey" and pointed it out to Billy.

Deco was interesting making stops inside a 6ft chimney. We finished off our deco silting out the pond basin :-)
