I'm planning to be there from about 10am to at least 2 or 3 pm maybe longer


I have a couple extra sets of snorkle gear too

once you pay and sign the waver, ask where Jeremy is and the guy at the gate should point you to where I am with my wife and kids

there is a little sandy area close to the entrance, that is where I should be but it may change

also look for a late 90's white chevy truck with a camper

I will put blue tape on my window and gear bag with MH on it in case I am diving when you get there

my cell is: to 8 one- 7 fo fo- five to five tree

What is the visibility like in Mammoth Lake. Last weekend at 288 Lake it was between 5 and 10 ft, but I have seen it much better.

At 288 Lake - yes, And you can see some of the stuff from the surface.
When I went last weekend they charged me the full $15. Maybe I shouldn't have told them I was freediving.

40'+ The thermocline is somewhere around 20' to 25' To go below it you need either a wetsuit or scuba gear.

they were doing a charity "swim for Sophia" and it was packed

well, the lake was packed but the water was perfect at the bottom about 70 or 72 degrees (below the thermocline), the viz wasn't to great 5 feet maybe

I found the bus, an engine and some old tires, did some underwater navigation

they were doing a charity "swim for Sophia"

they checked my PADI card

they don't allow kids unless they are well established swimmers either.

I ended the dive with what I thought was a reverse block, then my tooth started to hurt, then my other teeth on that side of my face were numb

apparently I had some sinus barotrama and possibly a bad tooth too

appointment with the dentist and ENT later today

hope to be able to do Mamoth lake next week or the week after
