Congratulations Doctor 60South! What is it in?


The degree says "Geography". But the research was remote sensing of Antarctic land surface temperature extremes.

Re: 2017, Wrapping Up - # of Dives? Highlights? Lowlights?

Oof. # of dives.....15? 20? Highlights - getting in the water! Lowlights? - Not getting in the water. :( Don't tear your rotator cuffs and ACL, kids, it's no bueno. But, I managed to go a whole year without a major surgery! 2018 brings trips to Hawaii and Roatan, so there's that to look forward to. ...

Re: Belize or Honduras?

It depends on what you want and how much money you want to spend. Belize has a barrier reef where pretty much all the diving happens. Staying on one of the Cayes puts you right in the action - you're 5-20 minutes from any dive site by boat. Pros - you're right there! And the local beer (Belikin) is ...

Re: FrFrFr - Dec 29 @ Sund Rock

I'm planning on making this one! I'll bring some medium spicy chili and french press coffee fixin's to help warm us up between dives. I can bring a canopy to help keep us dry, but I don't have sides for it, so it won't be super helpful in terms of keeping us warm.

Re: Places to eat after diving?

I love the spam musubi and loco moco at Marination. They make a mean michelada as well, which is a fantastic post-dive refreshment.

I'm also a big fan of pretty much any buffet. The buffet at Araya's Place on 45th in Seattle is vegan and utterly divine, even for omnivores such as myself.

Jeff, one of those mega packs of hamburger buns, or a couple of smaller packs should do. And if someone could bring a pack of hot dogs and hot dog buns, that would be swell too!
