Scuba Diving Forum

7 posts in this topic

I didn't see a forum for Site Discussion, so sorry if I got the wrong forum on this. If I did, if whoever moves it could let me know where it went/to post in the future, I'd appreciate it, thanks.

I was just wondering if it would be possible, and how big of an interest there is, for a scuba diving forum. I'm just getting certified up at college here, and I'd love to talk to people here on FM about the sport! So I was just wondering from the Admins if it'd be possible, and from the forum members how much interest this is. So if you scuba dive, are interested in diving, or just would like the forum for whatever reason, please voice yourselves below!

What does it cost to get certified? I have always thought about diving but never got into it yet.

Around $400 I think, I'm doing mine through school so it's $200, but that's without the open water dive.

Basically it's Class Time, then Pool Sessions, then an Open Water dive, and you're certified.

I don't know if there would ever be a forumn but there are other sites out there that have forums that are more dive specific, it's a tough one as there are probably a few members that dive, but use other sites as their info gathering and trip planning do to the minimal places to dive in MN, just talk with your instructor and get his recommendation i'm sure he knows a few good sites to look into. Have fun with it, it's a completely different world down there and truly an amazing experience.

Oh and watch who you talk to about the spear guns, you might find a few enemies that way. I really have no preference but the general census might feel otherwise.

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
