Started to get spooked again being alone in the dark. Could not find a good gravel pit to poke around in to get my mind off things. Did find some pottery pieces and a large piece of coporlite...petrified poop. Made it though to the end of the dive. Current started to pick up on this dive it felt like.

On the next dive, I got to the bottom of the river and worked my way under an overhead shelf. This got to me and I called my dive. I had an irrational fear that my equipment was going to fail for some reason, but had not reason to beleive this. I kept checking for my backup light and making sure it was there and noticed that I knew my backup reg was in place, but felt like I was forgetting about it. I was only 10min into this dive and not logging it. I gathered my nerves and tried to go in for the 4th dive of the day. As soon as I hit the bottom my light died. I switched to my backup, but did not want to dive on just a backup, so I went back to the boat. I was not as rattled when my light died as I had checked for my backup several times throughout the day.

Kyle (my carpool) got spooked on this dive as well. Both our nerves were a little shot and we called the dives on Sunday and just went home. Tues I thing I had finally calmed down enough that I think im ready to try it again. I did take my laval core off and felt MUCH better. Talked to Bob and he said you just have to zig zag back and forth. I think I just need to get more comfortable in the dark and having faith in my equipment. I beleive I will try this again, probably next year since I bought the 2yr SC hobby treasure finder license. This was not the same dive I rmembered doing with Bobby Osbourne 20 some odd years ago.
