Re: For Sale - DSS backplates

The only way I've been able to figure out posting pictures on this board is to put them on Facebook first … and I was hoping to give you guys first crack at the stuff I'm selling … and over the next six months there's going to be a lot of it.

Re: For Sale - Sidemount Rig

I know ... it's an $800 rig when it's new. But I probably won't ever use it again ... got a smaller Hollis Katana that I'll keep for the warmer water diving I'll be doing six months from now ...

Re: Mexico diving/snorkeling?

There's more snorkeling than diving at Cabo Pulmo, if the shops on the beach are any indication. The reefs are shallow and lovely, and quite worth snorkeling or diving. Keep in mind that Cabo Pulmo is about an hour and a half by car from the more industrialized San Jose del Cabo (where the airport i...

Did five days of diving in the Socorros, and another four days in ...
