    Am 58 years young and am very excited about diving. Live in the suburbs of Chicago and am a warm water diver. Lake Michigan too cold, BRRRRR. Yes I know there's a lot to dive on there but prefer the warm Caribbean waters. Am AOW certified and love to dive the wrecks in the warm Caribbean water. Going to Aruba in a couple weeks and will be in Truk Lagoon in October to see my instructor daughter.

    THAT was real diving!
    All this arguing today, over jacket BCD's, back inflate BCD's and BP/W's, is weird to watch, coming from a 1970's dive background. From that perspective they are all pretty much similar, and use the same technology, and do the same job!

    Happy BirthDay Joyce!

    53 years old and live in the Denver CO area. Have been diving for 5 years with little over 100 dives . Have an assistant instructors card and likely will get my instructors card in the next year after I get some more experience assisting. Dive Cozumel because it is good diving, inexpensive, close, and easy to plan trips. I also dove the Channel Islands, Roatan, Cabo and some fresh water sites. Thinking about taking up tech diving. Anybody else out there take up tech diving after 50? I would like to do a Florida Keys trip this fall and need a partner if anybody is interested

    I'm looking for a diver to share a room with me somehwere in the caribbean from 10/2 - 10/9... as usual, all the good deals are based on double occupancy. If you change your mind about heading down to the keys let me know.

    If anyone else on this thread has that week off and wants to go diving pm me. :D

    Diving since 1987. AOW certified 1990
    Did mostly cold Ontario diving including certified ice diver 1988 until I got married to a non-diver in 1994. Couldn't get him interested for 17 years.
    Last year he tries at Sandals in Cuba and he's hooked. :D
    Bought each other equipment for Christmas.
    Heading back to Sandals in Cuba for 2 weeks in September so he can get certified.
    We'll only be doing warm water diving.
    Already planning Feb 2011 trip to either Roatan or Utila with our LDS where we bought our stuff.
