[Memo]
We did the same drill as before. Again, everyone was comfortable with going down the rope, around back, excpet for Bro Lowe. This time Bishop Johnson stayed with him while I took the others through. We had a tag-a-long with us. A guy who was at the spring without a buddy. As we went down around the back, he wondered off. I kept an eye on him while trying to keep the group together. Unfortunately some of my crew started following him. I kept them together and we worked our way across the back and back up the rope. Again, once we got back to the upper portion of the cavern, I took Bishop Johnson back through. Since he was very comfortable (and an adult) :-) I let him wander off the rope and check things out. Later the youth were upset that they did not get to wander off the rope but I guess that's encouragement to dive again! All in all, great dive!!
