1) how deep is that pool? and 2) what camera did you use?  thanks, and keep up the great work

1) it's a 20 meter pool with a bubbler (to break surface tension in case you f#ck up). And the platform is 10 m(I think?)
It's a diving practice facility in MD

2) Some new HD camera.

Yeah the pool is 18 feet deep and its a Sony HDR-CX7... Records to an SD card instead of tape, makes capturing easier and so much faster, and its freakin tiny.

And I remember that jam, we were all traversing across the side of a cliff when we saw a baby rattler winding up to bite Flipster. It sprung forward at him, he move over like an inch, the rattle snake missed him, ultimately falling 20 feet into the water below...... best... jam... ever. lol

There are RATTLESNAKES there!?  Okay, never climbing there again.  I only ever ran into some rat snakes and stuff.  Nothing poisonous.  I didn't even know rattlesnakes lived anywhere on the East Coast.

Yup, they arent all over the place, but they are definitely in our region. Dont worry about it that much though, Never seen any other than that baby one.
