like California there is still that much BS about Nitrox. Here I am in Oklahoma, diving here and AR and Mo, and nitrox is now the norm, trimix is getting more and more attention- yet the shops out there still pass out excuses? Hell, average Nitrox fill here is 8 bucks a cylinder, less if you homebrew, everyone does partial pressure blending, and no one worries about it. Maybe it has something to do with lakes with less than 15 ft vis and the need to think clearly, maybe it's just a cowboy mentality, but perhaps that's something you could point out next time someone throws the "liability" line at you, along with the "no one wants it" BS.

PS- Mike- any chance of a DIR seminar in the Heartland? I'm willing to bet Jason of OCDA and Nelson at Island Quest would be happy to have you.
