I just finished up my CCR Cave course with Larry Babcock in North FL yesterday. I can not say enough about how thorough Larry is with dive plans & expectations. He hammered hard on appropriate bailout for the dive & dive planning, especially in the shadow of a fatal accident at the dive site a couple days ago. He used the incident to really bring home why it is so important. He even noticed me stressed out & asked me to re- evaluate whether I should make a dive, when my head was not in the game. I sat out & adjusted things as I needed them & got myself settled down & comfortable. That was absolutely the right call. It is that kind of keen observation & wisdom, that makes an excellent instructor.
