    Furlough Friday Dive At White Point

    I think I’m back online, at least for now, and should be making prompter posts; I just spent the last day turning four old broken PCs into one old working one.

    With a day off with no pay, compliments of the stagnant crapola economy, I decided to head down to White Point for a long overdue dive there.

    The trick to parking on the weekdays is to get there before 9 AM.

    TwinDuct and Debriefer Paul met me, along with a sort of new face – “Kevin.”

    After TwinDuct discovered problems with the threading on his tank, Kevin saved our SCUBA dive by loaning him a tank.

    Thanks Kevin!

    Logged Dive #350 – White Point
    San Pedro, CA

    Dove With TwinDuct & Kevin

    In With: 3000 psi
    Out With: 500 psi
    Max depth: 42 feet

    We entered off of a small rocky cul de sac – I think that’s what’s left of the old Japanese bathhouse.

    We submerged in 20 feet of water and headed South; there are underwater hot springs here, but I’ve never been able to find them.

    Kevin stayed with us almost until the end, before he went off solo to look for shells.

    White Point is strange in that some reefs are 40 feet deep, but if you try and swim over them, sometimes you reach the surface.

    We exited with no problems.

    We fired up the ghetto grill and debriefed with hot dogs and the King Of Beers.

    With lobster season fast approaching, I’m a little concerned… where are the lobsters?

    1. Stop diving and start making money. Maybe then you can afford a new computer.
