    I did my 100th dive this weekend in West Palm Beach. It was a night dive on Gov. Walk... Holy cow, the current was wicked and I think there were 30 divers on one wreck! But I was just quite proud of myself!

    My dive buddy (and wonderful husband) had his 100th the next day on The Breakers.

    Many thanks to my LDS, JnD Scuba for introducing us to a great sport and for being there to celebrate with us. And thanks to Diving Solutions for being the best boat and crew around!

    I still feel like a new diver, feel I have a lot more to learn, but it felt great to log that 100th dive!!!!

    Congratulations!
    I found out just a short time ago, on the board, that you are supposed to do the 100th dive naked. That wasnt the case for myself, (I didnt know about it at the time). I am guessing with 30other divers on the wreck and a wicked current you missed out too.
    Oh well, you can always do it for the 200th!
    Congratulations!:banana::banana::banana:

    Congratulations! 100 is a good number and a great dive to remember.

    I am jealous of anyone who lives in an area where they can go diving when they want to....without getting on a plane or driving 12 hours ;)

    Interesting you mention this "naked" diving for one's 100th, since a few people did bring it up on the boat! I saw it as an act of kindness that I did not dive naked with 29 assorted friends and strangers (smiling). I will save that special moment for my 200th and do it in my backyard pond,which I've been known to dive when I can't get to the ocean!

    Thanks everyone for the congrats! It's great to celebrate these milestones with others who know the joy of diving! And I do feel quite blessed that I live less than 2 hours from great diving year round!

    I remember a couple of years ago when I found I was going to be stuck in Atlanta for a few weeks, weekends included, on business. I must have spent 4 or 5 hours on the Internet trying to find somewhere, ANYWHERE, nearby to dive. I thought there would be lakes or quarrys or something. i quiclkly concluded that, as far as diving goes, I may as well have been traveling to the Sahara Desert... Needless to say, my dive gear stayed hanging in my closet at home while I was on that trip...:crying2:
