This was Joe's first time at Madison Blue. Joes' primary light went out as were were setting up in the water. So Joe decided to use a backup and run inbetween Billy and I. The plan was to hit the Godzilla Room but the map was gone from the guard shack and we didn't know how to get to it. We went in looking for it but ended up sticking to the main line. We went up past Half Hitch. Probably got around 1800ft in before it was time to turn. On the way out, we observed various jumps and played around with the camera. Joe went out the "Rabbit Hole" and took a picture of Billy coming out. I motioned for Joe to come back in and took him around the rock, out the other exit. As I came out, my dry suit started to run away with me. I grabbed a hold of the wall and started working with it. Billy saw me and pulled me back down and sat on me until I could get things back under control.

After that excitment I played around with my lift bag. Joe showed me what I was doing wrong. When we got out there were some kids playing around, jumping from the platform. Joe and I headed up (in our dry suits) and started jumping off as well. That was a lot of fun!
