Thanks Colleen, it was fun diving with you too! Let's go diving again! I'm glad Paul enjoyed himself in spite of my driving. And diving. New equipment is fun, but the transition...sheesh! Sparky, we had a great time at Sund Rock. Viz was decent, but it was cold!! 46 on the surface, a bit warmer belo...

I'm in for a club dive to help you celebrate. Impromptu, short notice, planned, whatever!

I missed my 100th, so I have to celebrate when everybody else hits it. :partyman:

I agree with the spring straps, they help tremendously. I found that if I put my reg in my mouth, squat down beneath the surface a bit, and then try to cross a leg over my bent knee that I can put my fins on a bit easier. Or, when I was having problems with my back and couldn't bend over at all, I w...

Since they are neoprene, you should be able to cut out a wedge and aquaseal the edges back together to make the seal smaller.

No, but if I still lived in Atlanta I would have gone to this, just for the giggle factor.

Saved by the Camel. OOC, what Camel were you saved by? Uncle Pug (Ron). His avatar has always been a camel. He was my dive buddy a few weeks ago on a fun dive after rescue class. We got down to the I Beams and my secondary reg had an uncontrollable freeflow. We tried to fix it, it wouldn't stop, so...

I never read the Tarzan series, I just liked the John Carter of Mars series. I've been told I should give them a whirl.

Greg Bear is another favorite author.

OOOH!! The Abyss! OK-I'd totally breathe the liquid oxygen thing if it existed, just to see what it's like. Pretty much any movie underwater is all right by me. Especially if there's realistic diving scenes. The liquid oxygen thing does exist. It hasn't proven to be viable due to increased episodes...

Okay, so this wasn't quite what I thought it would be, but it is nonetheless pretty darn funny. And really, who hasn't looked like this when they came face to face with a six-gill?

Yes, you are correct, on the 26th the moon reached its full phase within a few hours of perigee, when it is closest to the earth. http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap071025.html I love astronomy.
