I will echo Bassman's appreciation of Titlow. Always lots to see, easy access, and Steamer's restaurant for after dive relaxation! That being said, I'm still a relative newby with 27 dives (but who's counting?!?), so I've still got LOTS of time to explore new sites in our great Pacific Northwest! An...

Greece! Hmmm.... sounds interesting!

I'm going to Israel in July of 07 and have been making plans to dive the Red Sea out of Eilat for 2 to 4 days. :supz:

I had been looking at a cruise of some of the Greek Islands, maybe I need to be planning a dive trip there as well!!

Nope! It wasn't me... though I'm thinking of diving with Brian this Friday if I can swing it.

I guess I'm not the only diving preacher! :supz:

Hi Sparky! Would love to hear from your sweetheart, and Bible studies can be a blast if you do them right! ...and of course I wouldn't want to be "pushy" for any who don't share that persuasion! I also get to hang out with God when I'm diving in the great outdoors! Bassman and I both play for our Ch...

I should be able to join Bassman for the trek, and as he said, we'll see about our wives.

I would bug out Sat evening to go back to Lakewood and do Church, but could head out again Sunday afternoon if there is still diving goin' on! :bounce:

Hi Dave, Bassman and myself are trying to carve out 4 days or so in June or July (Sat PM to Tuesday or Wed). We'll let you know when we come to an agreement with our better halves!! Your invites have been noticed (THANKS!!!) and we've been drooling over the prospect for a while now! I CAN HARDLY WAI...

I have a USIA Aqua Pro Plus. I've got about 20 dives on it, and so far it has been a great suit. I went with a custom suit to fit my mutant fat boy body, (I'm thinking of starting the fat old geezer division of Northwest Dive Club!) I needed a pretty tough suit to survive bumps and scrapes, and it h...

I'll be at one of your classes, either at the Seattle Acquarium, or at Orcas! I do want to do the PADI specialty, so we'll talk about doing the dives as well.

Thanks Janna!

Any updates here? Is anybody committed besides Calvin, Dave, and Myself?!? Come on guys! It would be a shame to not be able to do this class with Janna!

Hi Brian... Might join you one one of your Friday dives. It seems that everyone wants to dive on Sunday's and Wednesdays, and I'm always kind of busy those days! We'll be in touch...

Count me in as well. I have those days blocked off.

Did Janna say how many commitments she needs to do the class?

I want a XXL, and I'm sure Bassman will take one... XL.

If you find a way to get it to the Everett USports please send them down to the Lakewood Underwater Sports!

If not, we'll figure out a way to hook up...

Deception Pass is awesome from the surface! I'm betting it's an even more awesome dive... though the currents can really get ripping through here.

I'd love to do this dive someday...

I'm available on the 20th, and out of town on the 27th. If there is enough interest to make it worthwhile for Janna, could we do 2 classes? Perhaps the 20th AND a June date? I beleive that the cost of the class is $100, plus any books that you might want to purchase. (The books are not required.) Ja...

I'd think they would have stolen some dive gear if they were divers. The stuff they stole is the common type of stuff thieves can easily get rid of. How about checking at local pawn shops?
