      Hi Jim,
      We were delighted to receive our AOW cards in the mail and love the frameable certificate! Still debriefing over morning coffee and absorbing just how much we learned in those six dives with you at Mt Storm in crappy viz! I was shocked to hear an instructor at our LDS tell a newly certified OW diver that AOW would be the "easiest course they would ever take". Rob & I looked at each other in disbelief -- we are thankful you challenged us on our AOW dives and thrilled with how much we learned.

      P.S. Check your private e-mail -- we are interested in additional training with you. (On the road again... we just can't wait to get on the road again...)

      I received the reg and 1st stage last week and dove with it last weekend and it performed excellent. It felt even breathed better the deeper I went. I love it thanks! My wife tried it out and she wants me to purchase her a set so I will be sending you a email soon.

      Jim: Diving at Dutch this weekend? If so you know how cold it is! If you go diving at Dutch, look for the tent as a dive flag on the student side.

      Jim, I see you have been heavily involved in the board. It has been awhile since we communicated. I cannot remember if you were married or not.
      How is is your partner in life doing.
