Greetings fellow bubble heads! I'm not based in Yorkshire but I might dive there one day and need a buddy, so I thought I'd introduce myself.

Padi AI been diving for about 3 years now, dive most of the year although I cant say I enjoy the 2 degree stuff much!

If anyone is heading over to Lancashire and needs a buddy I'll join ya if I'm available.

Hey AA,

Welcome aboard YD mate!

Don't worry about not being a Yorkie, there's only a select handful of them on here anyway (and they don't take up that much room
). The vast majority of us are from all corners of the UK and Ireland - and we even have outposts in the US, Canada, mainland Europe, Egypt, Thailand, Ozz and NZ!!

I'm in Manchester, in fact there are a few of us from the Lancy side of the t'th'ills, so you've already got buddies if you fancy a wet sometime. Get your face into Planned Trips and get yourself on a wet with us soon - failing that, organise one yourself and invite us along!

Cheers,

Hi AirAssisted

I too am AirAssisted, I couldn't breath without it. You certainly don't have to be from Yorkshire to belong here. YD is a state of mind, and most of ours are in a right state. If you in Lancs we will no doubt eventualy meet at capernwray, I like near Wigan so I get there about a dozen times a year, mostly for training.

See you around

I'm based in sunny Blackpool, once went on a boat trip 20 miles out near the gas rigs to dive on a wreck called the montreal, 150 tonne hospital ship, sunk after being damaged by a mine .... lets say the viz was erm erm ... so bad we couldnt find the wreck! Shame we didnt spot the trawler nearby destroying the vix for miles!! I'm go to capernwray all the time, great for just a potter around. Have any of you guys tried diving at hodge close? Nice site, hard to dive tho and no facilities.

Keep hearing about it. Some good, some bad. Never done it myself, I should realy go just for the sake of having been there. If anyones up for it we could organise a jaunt in the summer when the weather picks up (plus I have so much already in the pipeline just now).

Stu, sounds like a great idea - I've done hodge and would welcome another chance to go. Eccy delph aint far from you isn't it? Heard lots about it, but never dipped my toe in, might also be worth a visit.
