      I'm planning a trip to Egypt for the beginning of october, and I'm in the process of looking at packages and so on. It seems diving trips are twice as much as hotel stays, and I'm wondering if it's not as interesting to choose the latter and arrange diving once there. Also I've never dived with pelagics and would love to experience this. Could you recommend diving spots? Is there anywhere specific I should be in sharm for great dives? How about diving in Hurghada? Thanks for any tips you may have.
      By the way I last dove the phillipines in January so if you're interested I can share my experience there.

      Hey Lynne,
      I just wanted to say thank you for everything that you have done to help the scuba community on this board. I hardly see a topic where someone has asked for help where you don't take time to provide an informed and unbiased post. Your advice has been integral to my development as a diver. Keep up the amazing work.

      Hi TSandM,

      Hope to see you in the caves of NW Florida some time soon! I dive there often.

      Did you respond to a message in the last two years regarding trim weights on a back late and wing? The original question was about BP/W weight systems and I thought I recall you saying we could get together so you could show me your rig. I am currently diving a BCD comprised of a selection from - TransPlate, TransPak, big and small weight pockets, and a weight belt. I just ordered a set of tank band trim pockets. My wife and I dive almost every weekend - if you were the responder, maybe we could dive together.

      Hi! I got certified Open Water at the end of October but have not had the opportunity to dive since. I did very well with the books and being certified. I thought I would be very uncomfortable with diving because I didn't particularly like being in water. I surprisingly did very well! I spent a lot of time sitting at the bottom of the pool and cove practicing my skills while waiting for my classmates to calm down. I want to get back in the water but it's too cold here and I don't want to try drysuit diving yet. I was nervous about remembering the skills but I just read your entire diving journal (in one sitting) and found your humor and willingness to share your early struggles encouraging! I see now that you have had many dives since then so it must have turned out alright! I anxiously await warmer weather and opportunities to dive. My brother (he got certified a month before me and talked me into this) and I are planning a trip to the Crystal River in Florida for February.

      Thank you for all of the helpful comments you have posted on the board. I have learned a lot from your wisdom. I have no idea how you can post in almost every tread and keep up with things, but I sure appreciate it.

      Hey TS I was wondering if you could recommend any dive shops in the Seattle that offer GUE fundumental classes.
      Thank You,

      Sam, it was my pleasure, and I hope we can get up to Whidbey to share Keystone with you soon!

    Okay, you've heard all our opinions. Want to know what the science is? http://archive.rubicon-foundation.org/
    About GUE Fundamentals versus Intro to Tech: "ITT informed me that I was expected to donate my long hose whereas Fundies beat me into actually doing it, thirty times, halfway through shooting an SMB, upside down while swimming backwards in sulphuric acid."
