    Dive History:
    My first open water diving was a during a bareboat sailing charter in the BVI with four friends. I repeated this trip a year later. Then, in July of '05 I went with a larger group to Cozumel, MX. That trip triggered the dive bug. Before a year had passed I had been to Curacao, BVI, N Sulawesi in Indonesia, and Turks and Caicos.
    Since then I have been to Utila and Roatan in Honduras, Sipadan in Malaysia, to Cozumel twice more, San Salvador in the Bahamas, PG and Dumaguete in the Philippines, and I went to Curacao again in Dec 2009 and Jul 2011. Went to Saba in June 2011. Also added liveabord trip to Turks and Caicos in September and Cozumel in December. Little Caymen in June '12.

    Dive Equipment:
    I still dive with all my original gear except for exposure suits. I rarely use my full 3ml anymore. I dive a 5ml in water from 26C to 29C. In 25C water I use a 3ml torso warmer with the 5ml. I don't like water colder than 25C (77F) Recently added an Xcel 7mm w/hemp lining. I'm going to challenge cooler waters.
    I am a 58 yr old retired pipefitter. I have been diving since 2004. 12 countries, several of them multiple times.
