This was another really good dive! We got a little further than we have in the past (a few hundred feet past "Not My Fault"). On the way out, Jay wanted to check out a jump. Billy said, "No!". Jay said, "OK?". Billy said, "No!". Jay said, "OK?". Finally, Jay just did it and Billy said, "OK". He tied onto the main line and headed off looking for the jump. After looking around for a bit he came back and saw the line about 2ft from the main line. Very funny! Jay wanted to try another jump but I told him that Billy probably wouldn't be too happy if he did. :-)

We took a few pictures and goofed around as we got closer to the exit. Once we made it out we decided to give downstream a go. We went all the way back until Jay realized that it was getting pretty tight (for him in side-mount) and remembered that I was in back mount. We decided to turn and head out. Billy checked out a side-mount jump. I found a bigger entrance to the same bedding plane and popped up in front of him. I had to back out though. We spent some time goofing off in the basin looking for other entrances then exited the water.
