      Hi Cheryl - Thanks for bringing up the dry suit, but I know med might fit my girth, but not my height. I found it difficult to even find a wetsuit as I'm a medium/Tall-Large, and even it is a tad short for my legs, I have to wear homemade gaiters to cover the opening between the end of the leg and the top of the boot. Im ok with wetsuit in the cold ocean, so I wont be looking for a dry suit for awhile. See you around. Eric

      Hey bro, yeah, I would be up to meeting up with your group, I am open to anyone going. I have a couple of buddies that would probably go too seeing that the coast is not all that nice right now! I just got back from a 4 day Truth Aquatics trip to the channel islands and logged 15 dives so I am happy! Now back to the cold water lol Let me know when you all go out and where, thanks, Greg.

      Hey there, I would like to do some diving with your group at some time, just let me know when you all go out and I will show up. I just love to dive and meeting new dive buddies is what it's about so it doesn't bother me who I dive with for the most part. As long as they are certified! lol Thanks,

    Certification Agencies:
    NASDS, SSI, PADI, University of California (NAUI)
    Dive History:
    Certified in 1971. Diving in Monterery,CA; San Diego, CA; Channel Islands, CA; North Coast, CA; Hawaii, CanCun, & Cozemel. Guess where I like to dive the most (hint: it is a State Reserve off the Carmel coast). Took a hiatus from 2001 to early 2011 when it was time to introduce my teen age sons to the sport. It took with one. Became a divemaster to support scout/youth diving. Since then I have done more dives than ever before. Most of my recent dives are within 4 hours of Sacramento, CA. I'm currently diving dry and do both videography (GoPro) and Still photography. I started to dive dry in the mid-1980's.

    2017 update: I've transitioned to sidemounting and LOVE it. Still doing my photography and videography. You can count me as one of the stalwart 'regulars' of the Monterey, CA, USA diving scene.
    Certification History:
    Open water with NASDS (does anyone even remember these guys?) in 1971
    SSI Senior Diver in 1973
    UC Advanced diver with Naui - 100 hour 12 dive course in 1979

    Happily married mother of 2 young adult sons. One is a certified diver, the other didn't like it. My husband is also certified, but has given up on cold water diving. I'm a member of a really active FaceBook based dive club and go diving several times a month in spite of the 3+ hour drive to the nearest decent water.
