Well, another ab opener weekend up on the North Coast.
I left the house about 5:45, hit Starbucks, then hit the road to the coast. I knew it was ab season because around the town of Guerneville the pick ups were beginning to accumulate on the road and it seemed all of them were on a mission by the way they pushed the speed limit and had that ĎGet the hell out of my way, Iím going ab diving!í attitude. By the time we got past Jenner there was a definite line of pickups like a freight train heading up the coast. There was no poking allowed. If you didnít stay with the determined mindset and flow of traffic you were going to piss someone off. You could tell almost all the people heading up were locals, contractors, workers, tradesmen. This wasnít city boy day and certainly wasnít rock picker day. The wind was up and so was the tide. Today was not exactly the most stellar of dive days, but the hardcore went, the ones that have been thinking about this day since November 30th of last year. ĎOh how long that dreaded four months takes to go by before the savourance of that delicious snail!
I arrived at Fisk Mill Cove about 7:30 am and none of our group had arrived yet.
When I hiked back up to the parking lot I ran into a few good friends that I didnít know would be there. The lot was full with all kinds of people. My group hadnít showed up yet except for two of the North Coast Divers. They decided to go one cove up and do an ab dive. I set up all the barbecue stuff and everyone eventually showed up. Many of our group camped out over the weekend and were already dived out and sleeping off hangovers so they were late. But eventually every one showed up.
