      Thank you! Yes I am glad too that I discovered this seemingly unlimited supply of tips and how-too's when it comes SCUBA diving, I can't wait to dive. Cheers and thanks again, advice from experienced divers like yourself is worth more than any book has to offer:)

    Dive History:
    I have been diving since 1970 when I first certified through YMCA! In the years since I think I have dived just about every diveable lake in Texas as well as Maui, Cozumel (more times than I can count!), Grand Cayman, Roatan, Aruba, Cancun, Akumal, Grenada, and Barbados.
    I moved to Brownwood in 2007, and in the process lost all of my old dive buddies!. I would welcome the chance to connect with any divers near or far that I could dive with on an ongoing status. My wife does not dive but is content to lay on the beach sipping drinks with little umbrellas in them while I go pursue my passion of diving! LOL
    I look forward to hearing from any divers. Near or far, young or old!

Bare 3/2 Progressive wetsuit (with glued-on Dive Rite thigh pocket). Scuba Pro Jet fins. Lights are UK Light Cannon for primary and Gulftex Photon for back-up. I dive in a Hogarthian or DIR fashion.
    Other equipment consists of an OMS 90 lb wing with OMS stainless steel back-plate and OMS IQ Harness system.
    Rebreather Experience:
    I certified through YMCA in 1970. Worked my way through PADI over the years to Rescue, with specialties in Deep, Nitrox, Night, and Equipment. TDI Advanced Nitrox and TDI Decompression Procedures.


    Don't mess with old guys... Age and skill will always overcome youth and treachery! BS and brilliance only come with age and experience.
