    Wow!

    It always amazes me when I consider the camera guy's part in these video's.

    These guy's were squeezing through holes with tanks, big deal. The camera guy was squeezing through with tanks & a camera.

    Very well done.

    nice vid but was a bit surprised not to see any protective head gear in such confined spaces one of the guys never even had a hood on to me that equals pain especially with my baldy head

    Hi Curt,

    I'm just curious, Josh Bernstein on the video is the same guy from Discovery Channel?

    I'm a big fan of his program, and if it's same person, my compliments he improved a lot his diving skills.

    Yes that is the real Josh Berstein from the discovery channel. He is joining one of my Yucatan cave expeditions and needed to be taught how to sidemount before going.

    I would say that he did an excellent job and picked it up quickly....

    Well if your good you don't need a helmet. Lol
    Or just have a hard head like we do...

    I normally only use a helmet when scootering or doing survey work to hold my writing pen light
