    Well of course we can hear just fine. I have noticed, however, that elocution is generally declining in the population at large... :)

    ... jus an update.

    57 and lookin' 58 in the ol' hairy eyeball.

    Last dives were my FIRST doubles dive with twin 100's done at Mermett Springs in Illinois (yes... I did a swim through in the sunk 727). Starting in Jan of LAST year, myself and a guy in the shop who's got 5 years on me (62) have been doing at least one openwater dive each month... we've done lakes, ponds, quarries, carribean, ice, near ice (cold enough... just no skid stuff on the surface), Bonne Terre Mine (3 dives in one day... WITH accompanying 1/4 mile hikes in and out each time)... MOSTLY drysuit stuff.

    He's an instructor... I'm a DM working on my AI...

    I'm currently prepping for a FL trip to do some diving in Largo and then heading down to Key West for a week excersion out to the Dry Tortugas... Pennyroyal when we get back. THEN I start doing the DM thing as the shop starts getting all the OW student we had over the winter into the local quarries so they can finish up their certs...

    Life is good...
