Among the other crap the owners of a quarry sunk in the water was a pair of basketball nets...

and some bowling balls.

Water was nice and warm... no hood!

Air (?) time.

I believe the kids call this "dunking"?

Making a layup with a 12lb bowling ball in 30 feet of water is not as easy as you'd think.

Having the map on the camera underwater helped with remembering bearings between lake detritus... the bus had both doors removed and we dove through it. Same with the plane.

Brief stop at the Duke Project WILD high ropes course... for those in the know, remember how they said the trees were dead and the course had to be condemned? Yeah, that is the top half of the lazy two line tree laying on the foot line of the multi vine. Oops.

The rope swing is still setup (along with the haul cord!)

Platform with staff instructions still up. Ladders still locked to the tree off to the side...
