"The first half of the dive is yours. The second half of the dive is mine" - Danny Riordan.

Well, after all the hullaballoo and drama of the previous day, I was looking forward to what would hopefully be a more relaxed affair when I woke up the next day. The first order of business was to rap on Neil's door and see how he was doing. When he opened the door he was smiling, which I hadn't expected.

OK, where were we. Ahh yes. Danny, Meredith and I were in the water. Imogen was standing up in her kit, and dumbass had just done the hoppy dance of futility before landing on the floor. Luckily his body protected all his gear from gettnig scratched. Wwhat else? Ahh yes, the screaming.

I was really looking forward to day 2. I had woken up at 6 o clock in the morning, and had that lovely "no jet lag for me" feeling. In fact, I felt so awesome that I went for a run in the surf and then hit the gym for 45 minutes until it was time to drag the snoozing carcass of my snooze-addicted wife and go knock on Neil's door for breakfast.

Cave 1 is GUE's introduction to cave diving. It has limits of using a about a fifth of your available gas on the penetration, which sounds awfully conservative until you see what happens when something goes awry. On Cave1, things tend to go more awry than they go well.
