For the three days Kris Harrison only dove once. Some excuses why he wasn't diving were spider bite, swollen throat. hives, asthma. He said he thinks he has PFO. After 9 nine thousand dives he is just finding out now he has PFO???.
The night before the last dive Harrison mentioned he doesn’t want to dive.Now his excuse was gas management. We had many gas options.We had a compressor and T bottles of h2 and 02..He did not take the time to prepare. Harrison still had enough safe tested gas along with travel gas to dive. Then Kris Harrison instructor/ trainer said my fellow divers and I are unsafe. This was a new excuse. Because I once drank the Kris Harrison/Sirius Diving COOL-AID, it weighed heavy on my dive mind.
I started preparing my dives at about 5:30 am while Kris slept. The fourth day of diving I had more than 266 cubic feet of 19/40 back gas for a 20 minute dive to 165 feet. For deco I had a 3000psi AL 80 of 50nitrox and a full AL40of 02 I was well within thirds on all my gas. Remeber, Kris Harrison did prepare tanks for multiple dive's. Now all of a sudden Harrison didn’t have enough gas.
Latter that night I mentioned to Harrison by making excuses, blaming everyone and everything he was acting childish. Kris Harrison /Instructor /Trainser from Sirius Diving then exploded. He verbally tongue lashed me, calling me names. When I left he then chased me to explain excuses and theory. I was just trying get away from him. I went to the room again he followed relentlessly. After trying to ignore some coments, I asked him to leave for a while. No Luck. Then when he threatened to empty my tanks (h2 and 02) I checked out and got a room at a different hotel. It was better to pay for both rooms.
I know Harrison is now trying to discredit me. I am afraid of him then and now. I thought he might physically harm me. He threatened my property.(he was going to empty my tanks). I for sure did not want to be in the same car as him. Due to his threats and relentless pursuit I came very close to having Kris Harrison arrested .
Kris Harrison / Sirius Diving had a very good sanitized resume. At this point in his life Harrison has hit ROCK BOTTOM. He has no money. His wife was away. He is living in a tent in Montana. His Jeep engine blew up. Claims part of his Megladon re-breather was stolen out of an extremely secure area, spider bite,food poisoining, allergic to fish and PFO. This all in the last month?
Synopsis: I had trusted and one time looked up to Kris Harrison. I thought he was a friend. It is not important to agree with my opinion of Harrison.. It is not an issue if his re-breather was stolen. Not an issue Kris Harrison calling dives. MOST IMPORTANT Issue: Kris Harrison vulgar verbal comments and threats. Threats to damage my equipment and property. Insructor/trainers are held to a higher standard. Some one remind Harrison of this. I am sure when all is said and done Harrison will put the blame on me. I am guilty for inviting him,
