I'm planning on coming back tomorrow night, but - depending on how I feel - might crash at your place and blow out early Sunday (avoiding the incoming Halloween traffic). I'm figuring this to be the dive when I finally get my trophy 10 inch abalone. Maybe three.
I'm sure we'll have some more shots in November. I'll keep Doug on watch, and tell him I need reports of good conditions even if he can't dive. You need to get your priorities right. BTW - Nice gavel work at the exchange.
Got a new phone (Palm Pre) but had to switch to Sprint Network. Not sure how it'll work up there, but will text on arrival.. - mw
No problem Mike. I can't make it...just got off two weeks on the road and getting ready to go on the road for another two weeks...everything should be where you left it! please let me know when you get there and start drinking my beer :)

Thanks for the invitation. I tried to rearrange my commitments for tomorrow, but was unsuccessful. Happy hunting and let me know if we are lucky enough to have another opportunity this year.

This is the end of the abalone season - in case you had not noticed. One month left.
Let's review the season, shall we? I have made three carefully planned attempts this year, all of which have met with less than ideal conditions and several washouts. Nevertheless, I have managed to get four abalone marked on my card this year (which I believe - puts me four ahead of your combined total).
For the last month of the season, I have a new idea. The"No Plan" plan. Instead of scheduling a dive in advanced based on tide tables, I've asked my reliable local source to inform me of ideal conditions, with the intent of dropping everything and heading up on a days notice. No sooner did I set this up, when I got my first notification. Ideal conditions are forecast for tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday AM. What say you boys? I am up for a Friday drive (early or late) to target either late Friday or Saturday AM dive - or - a crack of dawn drive on Saturday morning for a mid-morning Saturday dive? - mw

This is the end
My only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
