    O/W in 1977 in ginnie, Lots of quarry and lake diving with the occasional trip to Florida for some reef and cave country O/W diving. At some point back in the nineties we started getting hastled trying to dive what was considered advanced level diving so I decided to earn my advanced cert in the Maldives. We try to get down to cave country around Christmas every year so it stands to reason that I should pursue cavern and then cave certs. For the first three decades of my diving life I planned and dove the Navy Dive tables and kept my gear rigged with just what was needed and useful shunning the purchase of bell and whistles just for the sake of following the crowd. I guess kinda primative DIR attitude without doing more crowd following. Personally I find some of the current DIR crowd to be a bunch of self rightous, snobbish lemmings. Finally bought a computer but still rely heavily on the tables. Way back then we trained to buddy breath and plan and make deco stops without a second thought.
