    Too old to dive

    Hi, thanks. I was cleaning a small wound on the bottom of a 90 year woman one time, and had to take a picture of the wound for our records. The lady asked to see the picture, and when she did she started crying. She said "I was an actress; I used to have a beautiful bottom!" I felt so bad...

    Diving In Cancun

    Hi, I just got back from Cancun 4/24, had a great time. I use a scopalamine patch for sea sickness and in stead of leaving it on for the 72 hours, I took 3 on this trip; put a patch on before I left the hotel, and removed and disposed of it after the dives. When I used to do live aboard dives...

    Too old to dive

    Thanks, I used to be a long distance swimmer but I admit I have fallen down on the job in recent years. I'm slim now and trying to get in better physical shape. Mentally i guess there's no hope! On this latest trip to Cancun one of the dives was to 81 feet. I really am happiest at 40-50 feet...

    Too old to dive

    I just got back from Cancun the 24th April, good timing considering the CDC warnings, etc. Thankfully I have felt fine. I dived with Fred of Dive Cancun, and Clemente the other dive master. They were wonderful and since there were only 3-4 of us each dive, including the dm, I had a great...

    Too old to dive

    At least you had the excuse of narcosis--I was about 3 feet deep. Oh well I guess lessons in humility never hurt.

    Too old to dive

    Hi, since I always am on my own when I go diving (i.e. I arrive alone, and am assigned a buddy as my husband isn't able to accompany me and doesn't dive anyway) I will need to have my own analyzer, but I really like the way you quadruple check each other!

    Too old to dive

    Boy you guys are encouraging! I have no right to complain at age 63 when you and your wife can dive at 75! I definitely had more energy diving in Cancun this week than when I do dry suit diving in the northwest, which is usually the only diving available to me.

    Too old to dive

    Thanks to you guys, yeah maybe I could afford the nitrox class if I didn't have to buy an analyzer but my dm says it is much safer to take my own analyzer when I dive.

    Too old to dive

    Hey thanks to you all. I just got back from diving in Cancun-- boy what a difference fron dry suit diving in Washington and the Channel Islands! I felt 30 years younger in the dives. I will follow your advice as soon as I can afford it and get nitrox certified, and buy an analyzer. i get...

    Too old to dive

    Thanks--I'm in a lot better shape than my doctor! I am a lot skinnier than I used to be and my only physical problem is severe foot arthritis so it hurts to walk--but I still work full time. No knee or back problems, thank the heavens. I don't ride a harley but I am hell on wheels with my 50...

    Too old to dive

    Thanks. I have a lot more problem handling the weight now,; all my diving in the past year has been dry suit diving and I'm just not as free and agile as I was. I need help a lot more, handling the tank, etc but since I only do boat diving I manage ok. I'm going to Cancun/Cozumel this...

    Too old to dive

    I hadn't dived for 20 years--raising kids, etc. I did a "relearning" pool dive, worrying that I might just be too old now--62. I got in the pool, went down a few feet and started to kick. I didn't go very far, wasn't moving much, and right there decided that I must be too old and weak, maybe...

    I really appreciate you all helping me with this. I have gotten good feedback and am really looking forward to the dive. I found some good recommendations re Fred from divecancun--confusion from different names for the site, and he has been helpful so I think I'll have a good experience with...

    How is Dive Cancun dive shop

    Thank you so much for your help. I'm really getting excited about the trip. I haven't done warm water diving since I learned to dive in Thailand 22 years ago or so-- It's been all 8mm wet suits and dry suits. Chris
