Thanks for the two cents...(rather, more like 50-70 dollars for one docter visit. )

Taking this opportunity, let me ask a different question:

In a free dive, when, where (what depth) and how do you generally equalize, say if you dive for 20 feet?

at 10 feet? once, and at 20 ft.? Or..????

Do you simply swallow saliva? Or, pinch your nose and gentlly pressurize??? If it is not working, what do you do?

I know it depends on the condition. When everything is going well, one may not bother to think about it. But just curious...and for my reference. Thank you!
