(I own a set of twin 100HP's and a bunch more deco bottles, but probably won't use them if it's not over 218'.)

Hi Chad, I definitely want to dive the ande again- it was well worth hauling all that gear around. Its interesting to see how different our deco profiles are, given our similar bottom times. I had many more deep stops then you (My first stop was 60', yours seems 25 or 30' ) and more overall deco despite the fact I used two gasses on the ascent (32, 80). Using vplanner I cannot create your dive with only 16 minutes of hang time. I would guess your using a buhlmann or another aggressive model to get such a short deco. Wild to see how different two theories play out on dives. I wonder if anyone else would post their profiles from dives to the ande for comparison.

Um YA! I'd be the guy that shot something and was on my way up in 5 minutes, laughing at the guys who spent 20 minutes on the bottom taking pics, then another half hour burning off deco. No offense to scubasteve, just a different philosophy.
