    flying with can light battery

    If you haven't read it, I recommend the novel Cryptonomicon, by Neal Stephenson. It weaves multiple stories from WWII and 90's era silicon valley together. Alan Turing is a character along with Marines, hackers, Philippine treasure divers, and priests. Funny and fascinating book WRT to the...

    Oil slick leap was the most fun giant stride entry I've ever done, I would definitely do that again. And I second the take 3 tanks up to the park. Solo diving in Bonaire is not a problem.
