Re: Belize 2018

Great report and photos! I'm glad you liked Belize! I really enjoyed it there. We went to a restaurant there that specialized in lionfish. It's delicious. When I think of all the other fish whose populations got wiped out due to their tastiness, I never thought I'd hope for that to happen to another...

Re: Attached Drysuit Boots Cause Floaty Feet?

Carl, if you can make it to the club dive this weekend I can try to find you a less floaty pair of fins to dive with. Everyone here is correct, though, that it's mostly incremental adjustments to weight, technique, and practice over more gear.

Re: I-5 lane closures this weekend

Everybody wants nice roads, but nobody wants to pay for them or take the time to fix them. Not pointing fingers, mind you, that's just the way it is. Speaking of south end road work, Lacey is getting a diverging diamond interchange at Marvin Rd/I-5! They're really cool. https://www.youtube.com/watch...

I-5 lane closures this weekend

Give yourself extra time if you're traveling around the Sound for diving (or not diving) this weekend. There's a Sounders game on Sunday afternoon too.

Re: God's Pocket Situation

What what I found online it sounds a bit like the Nanaimo charters which run day boats and then you find a hotel onshore. I would like to know more too...
