I can't take any more, done the shopping, the kids are going nuts, the partner is doing her nut, too much work.

So, I've arranged to go to Stoney with a mate on the 30th. If any of you lot are around and fancy it, well it would be nice to meet you.

cant promise anything just yet as I need to liase but that sounds good to me. Me and the boy have just bought dry-bags so we fancy a shallow dip if you are up for it. Both AOW done Stoney about 10 dives (I think, maybe 12). We live in Herts, you are in Bucks, how about Lou & Prtner, they're in Bucks as well. If its a date I'll see if another mate wants to do it as he's never done Stoney in Dec, only month he's missed so far.

Sounds good.  We will have done family duties by then, and need to practise before mid-Jan anyway.  I'll ask C, if she says yay, it's a date!

Hey Matt,

Followed you around on this and Dnet, we got to do a bit of practice swapping regs n stuf, but yeh, would be good to meet you.

Rule of thumb is, dive - bacon butty - dive - beer

sounds fine by me. No to the bacon butty though, I bring my own. Dont let me stop you though! Reg swapping, in water, you mad? You seen the water in there? I'll confirm yes/no tomorrow, will you be on Site tomorrow?
Lou has confirmed she's up for it so it looks like a Southern YD gig. Any others? Mark (Chase) how about you or is too shallow to compress the suit enough to make those slob-knobs viable (see Dnet),

I've convinced the boy that floating upside down is going to be good practice for hime so we're on for the 30th.
Time of meet anybody? I reckon 10 sounds good - everybody OK with that. Hit the water by 10.30 out by 11.15 (ish) back in about 13.00 out by 14.00 in the pub a bit after.
Any body any objections to that plan?

Good girl, reserve 6 car parking spaces will you.

Yeah come on Northern buys (should that have ben boys!) head South for the winter.
Purple and yellow, that should put them off.

Yep, I will be there 10.00. I might have to scrounge some kit as my twin set has mix in it from a blown out Mol trip. We are suposed to be going out on the Mol again on the 28th but I dont hold out much hope.

If not it will be single tank and my wifes regs which should be a good test for them as they are not cold water regs :0

Numpty mistake earley kit was all K valve and the cylinders are not convertable so my din kit wont fit.

Fortunatly pony is din

Andy, looks like you and Mark could double up and I hope another mate (Paul - steelmonkey) off Dnet might make it so one way or another you'll have someone to dunk with, either a three with me and the boy or one of the other two or something arranged on the day.

Hi Matt,

Swapped a couple of mails with Mark, should be OK. Don't mind it on my own, but Stoney is not the most interesting place on this planet.

Right, I've done our packed lunch, the kit is almost ready and we are setting the alarm for 5.45am - you fellas had better show!

See you all tomorrw....hopefully.  Black (and dirty) Volvo V40, R-reg.  One lady in black Otter skin, one in purple and yellow Otter - probably wet from the first dive by the time you appear!!!
