      Our January trip was a disaster. My wife's back blew out on her so she could not even get out of the room let alone put on her gear. As for me, my sinus infection was not as gone as I thought and the Sudafed I was taking did bad things to my brain. When we go back in June my wife will be better off with her back and I will be Sudafed free. Can't wait for June to get here. We are both pumped about getting back in the water to complete our certifications. We will be at the Dive Expo in Tacoma this month.

      I recon you should be packing for your Hood Canal trip about now. Good luck!
      I'm driving down to San Diego tomorrow with a bunch of past students to dive some kelp and some wrecks and some canyons. WooHoo!
