Tech 2, Part 1

Rob, Kevin, and I recently went to North Florida to start our GUE Tech 2 class with Dean Marshall. We broke the class into two parts, with the first three days in the 70-ish degree Florida springs, and the last two (or three) days in Monterey. We did this for a couple of reasons. First, we knew that there would potentially be a lot of time in the water during the first few days, and the cold water in Monterey puts some limit on that. But we really wanted to do the experience dives here, since we have access to a boat that we regularly do these kinds of dives from, and well, we thought it would be more fun to dive here. Finally, I liked the idea of splitting the class up, to avoid the 5-day fire hose that was Tech 1. By the end of the five days, I was retaining essentially nothing from the lectures, and couldn't remember the questions that I had wanted to ask. The rest of the trip report goes day by day, person by person:
