Re: 100 FREE dive articles now posted on ADM website

Awsome!!! Any plans to have them posted in a downloadable format, so I can grab a few for reading when I'm off the net (i.e., planes)???

Re: New Diver

Let us know when you've got your gear together, so we can start getting you out on dives. Of course, if you can make it up to the Monday night dives at Mukilteo, please do!

Re: Club Dive! Club Dive! Club Dive! September 18th!

I'm not real big on picnic food . . . Can I bring spare can lights, instead? If you're dealing that sort of "scuba crack", it only seems fair to push some scooters as well.... Lauri Redondo is a veeeeeery small place on a scooter. It doesn't take much! That's where I got Barb addicted.

Re: Fairly new diver looking for buddy

Welcome! I would encourage you to come dive with us at Mukalteo on Monday nights (keep an eye on the dive planning thread). This is a great site and a great group to dive to dive with. Newbies are always welcome and there are some fantastic divers there to help with mentoring.

Re: Whats up MMM crew???

Bummer!!!! April, kitsap diver and I were in pre-class with BDub... we got to see a 10 ft2 area of Cove 2 while practicing our drills. Sorry I missed all the great stuff, but at least I'm feeling better about my back kick. If my butt survives this weekend's class, I'm planning on being there next Mon.

Body Glide for neckseals

Recently, I've been using Body Glide (http://www.bodyglide.com/) to prevent blisters when hiking and running. Has anyone ever used it to prevent neckseal hickies?

Thanks for the reminder Lynne. Made me realize that although my standard pracitice is to check air at the same time points you decribe, I too have been getting a little lax at checking it when doing my bubble checks... after all, I check it when I turn my air on and I "know" the tank is fu...

If anyone who is planning on participating in dive 2 has an extra pair of jet fins or F-1s that I could borrow, I would appreciate it. Darn - have an extra set a...

Anyone bringing scooters? I want to test out my battery. It continues to show some wacky charging issues. (Way more fun to do it diving, than in the bathtub!)

Re: Ear Plugs

Lauri - you absolutely are not doing something right, either clearing poorly or having outer ear problems. You can clear successfully through a whole dive, and even several dives but if you are behind the pressure curve and forcing it a bit even the clearing is causing inflammation with excessive f...
