M2 & Firecracker Update

We visited Firecracker & M2 on March 16th, 2024 when the BLSF1 gauge was reading 49.6′ (NAVD88).  We found very high water levels and unfavorable dive conditions at both sites.  No dives were conducted.

Brian learned to dive in 1994 in a PE class at North Carolina State University and, thanks to a small community of cave divers there, started cave diving in 1995. Over the next decade he continued to volunteer with the NC State scuba program, participated in numerous hyperbaric studies for Diver’s Alert Network and made trips to cave country as often as possible. In 2005 he was part of a project to recover a B-25 Mitchell from a reservoir in South Carolina, which is where he met his wife, Heather. That led to a move to Florida in 2006. Since then, the two have been involved in various scuba projects in the US and Mexico, worked as crew for the M/V Spree in Key West, done salvage work for NOAA, and have been involved with KUR since 2020. Between dives, Brian is a Regional Engineering Manager for Amazon and lives in St Petersburg, FL.
