      I'm going to Bonaire when they reopen this year. I saw that you took a Genesis 2.1 with you. Please give some info on your packing and passing TSA. I've always brought my Aquaprop but have to replace the lithium battery with a NiMh. It seriously restricts scooter time. I will get a 2.1 if I can get it to Bonaire.

      I have no cavern/cave training, but would like to pursue doing so on CCR. Along with that, I would like to get to Trimix level on the O2ptima as well. My end goal is moderate level cave diving and advanced open water wreck diving. Can you help with that?

      Hey Peter.

      Just to preface, I am not in a super hurry or trying to rush things. I just want to plan ahead.

      I am certified OW Trmix and recently finished air diluent CCR on the O2ptima.

      Sorry for the loss of your son.

      I have never had kids myself but I did have an older sibling that I never got to know. She passed away when I was very young (<2 yo). I know her loss affected my parents deeply. My dad kept a framed picture of her around 40 years later.

      The only advice I can offer is that you may find some solace in spirituality.

      Hello, I just read some of your info and I too live in the greater Orlando area. I have Dacor XL diving equipment still in like new condition and I am interested in getting the primary and the two secondary regulators serviced. I read that you service these so how can I go about dropping them off to you for service?

    Dive History:
    Commercially I've dove nearly every water tower, fossil fuel power plant, and nuclear power plant in this country. I have raised sunken ships in Puerto Rico by cutting them into peices and hauling them off. I've dove in septic tanks, dams, rivers, locks. I've worked on oil pipelines and rigs. Recreationally, I've dove most of the popular springs ranging from Central Florida to the pan handle. I've hit all the touristy cave dives like Peacock and Ginnie to the not so touristy like Eagle's Nest and The Back 40. I've spent time in the keys diving the wonderful wrecks and reefs of Key Largo, and made a couple of trips to Bonaire where I tested the Dive Rite Optima CM rebreather to 500 feet.

    I am from FL. I've lived in most states in the US, but I keep finding myself back here. Which is good, because I believe the best diving in the US is here in FL. I got married young and recently passed 24 years of marriage. I have four children: 2 girls, 2 boys. Well, I lost one of those boys at 16 years old. And its changed my life. I started diving just before I got married and loved it. I made 66 dives before an LDS owner bullied me into taking a class. Then I ran for everything I could take. Rescue, Cavern, Intro, DM, everything. I was spending more time diving than working. Some dives paid, some dives cost me. It wasn't long before I was enrolled in commercial dive school & my career as a diver began. It's no coincidence that Diver is next to Divorce in the phone book. The life of a commercial diver is rough on a family. But, we kept it together. I mostly cave dive now, and prefer teaching technical courses. I do some freelance work commercially a few times a year because... well it pays A LOT. I'm sure if you've read my posts you think I'm probably a jerk. And well, for most people, you are right on the money, but if you make it past the crusty outer shell, you've found a friend for life that would go to the ends of the earth for you if you needed it.
