    not a diver but connection the Dr Pete's book

    I don't dive, at least in the water, and closed in spaces get to me but thought I would share this. We have what are called 'sinks' here in FL which are basically sinkholes where the ground has collapsed. Some are water filled by springs. One well known one is Wakulla Springs. These guys were part of a team that checked out and followed 6.9 miles of underwater caves until two sinks were seen to be connected ( as I understand it Jablonski is one of the divers in the good Dr's book)Not sure if anyone had watches on but the trip seemed unbelievable.

    Here is a picture of Jerrod Jablonski and Richie Kohler (Kohler on the right) looking at the Doxa Bible at the debut of Pete's DWL book the end of January. Several of us talked to Jablonski for a bit after the event. He really seemed to be a modest, down-to-earth guy........VERY easy to talk to.

    speaking of DWL: I just read this, page 619, Flood Tide: "The experienced crew consisted of Ralph Wilbanks, a big, jolly man in his early 40's with expansive brown eyes and a bristling mustache..."
