Assorted Gear for Sale

I'm posting this for a friend at work, a non-diver. She is having a garage sale on Saturday, November 11 to get rid of a ton of stuff that was left behind by her daughter's ex.

Need a Computer Guru

Does anyone know of a reliable computer guru? I'm in rather desperate need of someone to trouble shoot and clean up my computer, install a new (bigger) hard drive and do the data transfer. While I'm fairly creative with the beastie, I'm not technosavvy enough to do the work myself, and I really hate...

Usually if you are acute the fire dept will transport you. If you have no acute immediately life threatening injury they will arrange for a commercial ambulance. Actually, it depends on the municipality. In January Auburn FD started charging $$ to transport patients and now transports almost exclus...

I too have a DUI TLS suit, which I've had for nearly 5 years with over 720 dives on it.

I like trilam type suits ...

We looked for small red octopus and did not see any. It has been about 2 months since I have seen them at Redondo. Has anyone seen any there lately.


I was there Monday night and saw one on each dive, out and about. Cute little guys.

Exposure suits make great packing material, wrapped around regs, lights etc. I also stuff my small lights into my booties (protection). I pack as Amy suggested, regs inside BCD, fins on top for protection of the stuff below. Small box with SADK stuff, minimalist tho (fin strap, mouthpiece, few O rin...
