Started this dive with Ryan running the reel, I followed, and Brian was behind me.  Brian installed the first jump reel on the exit side, and then we kept moving on the gold line towards the entrance to our circuit.  Ryan installed the jump, and from there I would lead.  We went to the end of line there, and I installed the jump over to the Young Siphon (since I was the biggest, I lead the team because there was a restriction up ahead). I got to the end of the line, and turned the dive.  Ryan was now in the lead, and Brian was in the middle, I was at the back.  The two of them had gone through the restriction, and just when i was going through it, Jeff made me go OOA.  Fortunately Brian was very alert, and had air to me really fast; so we made it through the restriction.  Jeff tapped me on the head, which meant the drill is done.  I pulled the jump reel I had installed earlier.  We then proceeded to exit, when Jeff got ahead and kicked up a ton of clay, forcing us on the line in touch contact.  We did that until we reached the jump spool, where we all got back on the main line after Ryan pulled it.  After that, we had to go lights out for a good distance, until we reached the cavern zone.  Once in the cavern, we were given our lights back, and proceeded to do the deco we were then obligated to do.
