    Rebreather Experience:
    well lets see some info on me?? ok.. uhh well ok.. i served eight years in the United States Marine Corps.. where i developed a deep passion and respect for the ocean.. how ever due to my MOS i did not earn my bubbles or even get any type of trianing in scuba... soo as of today i am still not even certiefied diver but will be by second weekend of sept.. 09' !!! that is when i plan to certify... and right now im looking at getting good in expensive gear and even an old clunker boat that i can use for diving... i have been wanting to do this for years and have put it of to long so im jumping in with both feet and going to realy try and do it all...

    other than that.. i am a brick layer by trade so not a real big spender or actually i spend it faster than i can make it lol.. but i try to do as best i can on a construction worker's salery.

    i dedicate a lot of my free time to a group of kids that call themselves the "Dirty Dawgz" actually that is the teams name... its kind of a action sports or outdoors team that we put togather to keep kids of the streets and out trouble and away from drugs... the team originated from my niephew one of his cousins and a few of there friends that on summer about 5 yrs ago they didnt have nothing to do soo i grabed them up and started trianing them in paintball and mountian biking and rock climbing and all kinds of stuff... and since then its grown abit and have recruited troubled kids and
    sooo now we have about a little over a dozen or soo that have joined the team...
    the team or group is nothing official and we dont have any funding so we do what we can with what we can afford... since then i have helped a few troubled kids get off smoking marajuana and getting out of alternantive schools to actually graduating high school but as those kids grew up into young adults i have seemed to aquire another younger generation comming up right behind them...

    but i would say that the team keeps me busy
    we do :
    paintball (number one activity)"woods ball"
    mounting biking
    mountineering / rappeling
    and sometimes indoor rock climbing
    we do alot of hiking
    camping
    archery: traditional shooting,
    bow and arrow building (traditional & primitive)
    flint knapping
    paddling: kayak & rafting
    classes on:
    Map reading
    first aid
    survival

    and just this past summer been trying out snorkle / swimming would love to be able to get them all scuba certiefied but not on my salary..lol..
    maybe i could look into becoming a an instructor in the futer but for now i just have to get my feet wet and get under water!!!

    those are just some of the things i do for the kids... i work with... i have a little help from some of my buddies and from time to time i get help form others that see us struggling ( and that means like discounts on paintball events and stuff like that)
    the team has earned many recognitions at almost every event we compete in from Dorba races to Oklahoma D-Day paintball tournament/events... the team dont have much but them kids have heart!
    they remind me of the "bad news bears" lol.. a bunch of misfits and "at risk teens" that need a little encouragement and guidiance and a whole lot of PT..!!!

    anyways thats what keeps me busy
    other than that, about myself:
    i am 36 yrs old divorced single male...
    Straight..!
    no kids of my own "yet"
    i would like to think that one day i might re-marry and have a family of my own..
    but havent found that speacil woman that would take me as i am and put up with my busy scheadule !
    soo i dont know i guess that should be enough about me huh?
