I can't say that I missed you because I must have joined while you were away. But considering all the excitement on your return, I have to say I'm looking forward to meeting you! I'm becoming a regular fixture at Mukilteo, so I'm sure we'll meet up soon.
Welcome back :breakdance:

not true, amigo, not true...

there are quite a few divers that drive just as far, and even farther, to dive than i do...



And in spite of all the additional fuel they burn to get here, they still leave a smaller footprint than you do...

Sparky - Good to hear from you!

I've missed meeting you and Jay at Cove 2 on your marathon trips up here. It's great to hear that you are moving to Lake Stevens... I'm on the SE side of Marysville... almost in LS myself.

I've done some dives at Lake Ki... pretty typical W WA lake dive... exceptional only in that it's convenient (you can almost splash right from your tailgate), but not much to see. There are many, much better options...

I'm looking forward to splashing with you again!

Good to have you back, Sparky. What are you riding now? Can't tell from the picture.
I guess we won't ever get that Oregon Coast dive in together but perhaps I'll see you up at a site in Puget Sound.

Well Shoot
things are not going like I had planned them at all, having trouble selling this place and finding work in the Lake Stevens area that would not be a huge cut in pay for me, its starting to look like I may not get to move for a little while after all .


I know no excuse for not being a little more active on the club site like I said iIwas going to
I am thinking about trying to get a dive trip in the next couple weeks

you know I am stil a diver I still think better when im under water
and lord know i have not been there in a while,

im thinking maybe around the first part of next month or the middle of the month I might beable to be talked in to making a dive trip

now that I have some place to crash I might just make it a weekend trip try to dive Saturday and Sunday
maybe at Edmonds i havent been there in for ever


bet there has been lots of changes made by now

Sparkster - you should try to make the club dive at Saltwater SP this Saturday. Park opens at 8AM.
