@living4experiences and @VikingDives - I may get that SharkSnot! The name is a bit off-putting, but also makes it intriguing! Reef safe and not a bad price after dilution - gets good reviews on Amazon. Thanks!

Another oddball thing - I have a hairy neck, so my hair gets pulled by my wetsuit. I wear a gator (the kind you use to protect your face/neck from the sun) to tuck into the neck of my wetsuit. Works well.

I don't have a hairy neck. I prefer to say I have a low hairline. ha!

Great thoughts Kimela. I don't wear much makeup either, but I always wear eyeliner. I have a couple of different brands I like that are waterproof (Bobbi Brown is one I like) and stay on for all my dives. I also bring lots of creamy chapstick. My dentist has the best chapsticks so I always ask for extra when I'm there for a cleaning.

I am now very careful about how much coffee I drink in the morning. Had a little too much one morning on a rough crossing and....yeah, I just made it outside to the dive deck BUT ran to the wrong side. WOOSH, right back in my face. Good thing I hadn't eaten yet. Now I always wear a scopolamine patch and keep it on the entire trip, exchanging for a new one every 72hrs/3 days. It has worked beautifully for me.

Ouch. Not how you want to experience your morning cup of joe! Glad the patch works for you. :wink:

Yes I will not travel again without my scopolamine patch. I've never had it come off in the water either. Good for 3 days, then I replace. My sister, who does not dive but gets motion sickness very easily, traveled to Britain a couple of years ago, and purchased dramamine and said it worked beautifully. I think dramamine has changed quite a bit in recent years and works better now, though I haven't tried it.

Honesty, I never used to get seasick or motion sick. It's happened 2-3 times in my almost 20 years of diving. But after the 3rd time on the Bahamas Aggressor, I decided to not take chances again.
