I'm Headed Your Way!

We want to encourage our members to get together for dives and to foster friendships. With this in mind, we have started a new forum to specifically assist our members when they travel to other areas. Our new forum is designed for folks traveling to other areas wanting to dive with local members. If you are traveling someplace we have members and would like to hook up with local single or buddyless divers in that part of the country/world that you will be diving in, please post an announcement in I'm Heading Your Way.

Do not post trip details for dive travel/trips you are planning in this forum, rather use the "I need an SD Buddy" forum if SD is booking your travel or use the "Where in the World" forums if you are booking your own trip and want someone to join you.

If you see someone is heading your way and you'd like to dive with them while they're in town, send them a PM to make arrangements. Have fun and dive safely! Don't forget to post a trip report when you return!
