Fortune Pond June 15-16

Fortune Pond June 15-16
- We have another dive trip scheduled and the date is coming up fast. I'm making my motel reservations today. We dive all manner of vintage and modern dive equipment. At Fortune we get a chance to dive in extremely clear water on a simple weekend, travel-by-car dive trip. Everyone is welcome. :)

Travel Plans... Father's Day
- Fathers Day is Sunday June 17th and we'll be home in plenty of time for it. We leave after work on Thursday and get almost half of the trip done before staying over at Siren, WI. Then Friday we leave around 7:00 AM and get to Fortune around 11:00 AM. That leaves plenty of time for 2-3 dives Friday afternoon. Sunday we get out there and are diving by 8:00-9:00... We get in 2 dives and leave for home by 2:00 PM. That gets us home by 10:00 PM Saturday night.

Thanks for posting the video Ron... That sure looks like a lot of fun! 8)

Despite the rain, Fortune Pond delivered once again with great visibility and diving fun.

Great videos Ron. Thanks for taking the time to shoot, edit, and post them. That's a real cool and authentic vintage outfit you were diving in the last video. I didn't get a chance to ask how you liked diving your new 50 Fathom VCR2.
