Re: Tacoma/Fed Way, 6/24

I have to go to Tacoma for work on Wed., which is a perfect excuse to get some diving in after work. Anyone up for a dive? Les Davis, Redondo, 3TN, in the evening? Lauri Make that Thursday, and you will have a couple of divers to dive with ! Bassman - Unfortunately, I can't change the day this week...

Re: Suunto Vyper Computer

I had a very old AI Oceanic computer and I just switched it out for a Vyper. I probably have only about 30 dives on it, but it seems to be working OK for me. It has taken a little while to get used to the new display and new information on it. The factors behind my decision to buy it were: 1) I like...

Re: Who has summited Rainier?

I think it kind of depends on whether you want to take up mountainering as a new hobby, or just want to summit our local snowcone. If you're interested in it as a new hobby, then spend the time taking the classes. I've done a lot with the Everett Mountainiers and found them to be a good group, but a...

Re: Annapolis work & dive - June 13/14

Barb and I had an opportunity to join a work party on the Annapolis a couple of weekends ago and it was GREAT! If you have the opportunity to get up there, I highly encourage it. It is: 1) a WAY cool project; 2) in a beautiful location; 3) gives you great bragging rights when you have the opportunit...

Re: Diving June 17-21

I dove Porteau Cove in North Vancouver last weekend and it was FANTASTIC!!! They have a great set-up for divers, although you do need to be in shape for a bit of a surface swim! I didn't dive the wreck, but the folks who did, said it was a solid 20 min kick to get out to it. I did 2 dives on the art...

Magic day in So Cal

As many of you know, my partner and I commute between the lovely PNW and So Cal. Well this weekend was a So.Cal weekend, so we decided to hop on a boat for some diving. We chose the Magician out of San Pedro because: 1) it had open spots; 2) they offer Nitrox, and; 3) we had heard good things about ...

Re: Cove 2 AED update...

I was just nosing around on the DAN website and saw that they offer matching grants for the purchase of AED's.

Oh come on, it can't be as bad as sitting in the Houston airport on your way to Tulsa for the week, where I am right now!!!! ...but on to better subjects. Rescue class was a blast this weekend. I really enjoyed getting know know so many NWDC members. Not only are they a lot of fun, but great divers ...

Re: Fish hate me

So I don't think it's being in shape. I run, swim a mile a few mornings a week, etc... and I still can't hold my breath for crap. I was at Muklateo this evening and I ran into a woman who used to free dive in FL. She was pegging me about what it was like to cold water dive and I was pegging her with...

Re: What to do about the silt

Cofessions of a silt bomber..... I swear, I never knew that it was bad to do. I just though that was part of the deal with diving. I had taken classes from a few local shops and had about 80 dives under my belt and no one had ever mentioned anything about silt, let alone, how not to silt the place u...

Re: Shilshole Bay 2009-01-03

Eric - what a fun video! Thanks for making it and passing it on! Are you sure you want to go to Hawaii??? It looks like you could have a great videographic career in the PNW - we just need to get you underwater for the exciting shots! :)
