We are into October and as a whole the weather has been fairly good.  Water temperatures are still in the fifties and some of the lakes still have some good visibility.  There are still a few brave souls out diving.
There are still openings for Cozumel Jan. 2 nd through the 9 th.  The land package is $937.00 and the airfare dropped 60 dollars to $570.00.  The land package is locked in for price but the air can change from day to day.  We would enjoy having you on the great trip so call to sign up.  If you want to stay somewhere else on the island you can still dive with us that week and just pay for the dive package.

Tri-State Diving has been busy with the commercial diving this fall.  Here are two links to watch videos of a job we did on the Red Lake River in Thief River Falls.   The first video shows recovering a piling clamp that became detached from the boring machine when bolts broke.  The part above where the piece is being brought up is the part that dropped in about a week later that I had to go back up to recover and that is what the second video shows.
In August we were hired to cut and haul a big Cottonwood tree that had fallen into Cormorant Lake. The tree was estimated to be over 40 feet tall. Carrs Tree Service plans were to wait till winter and take it out on the ice but the tree did not wait and tipped into the lake. It took 5 trips to get all the sections hauled to the access on the north end of the lake where Carrs Tree Service cut into smaller sections and loaded the tree on a truck.
