    Strange Ear Issue

    Myself and a colleague are in the process of teaching our non-diving colleagues to dive (we both work part-time as an instructor and DM outside of our full time jobs). One of our colleagues had an issue where her ears would clear, but then re-block without changing depth. I think in about 25...

    fundies report

    I'm home sick from work today, so I figured now is good time to write up my course report. This was the second time I took fundies.
