      Just got back from a Live A Board trip on the Juliet out of Miami to the Bahamas! Had lots of fun and would recommend the trip to other divers.

      I had a wonderful dive in Hole In The Wall, at Jackson Blue last week.
      It has now become my favorite cave! Wes Skiles Peacock Springs used to be my favorite.

      I have a pair of High Pressure 80's for sale. They are doubled up, with an isolator valve between them. The valves were made in France. The tanks manufactured in Japan in March 2005. Hydro-ed in March 2010. I am asking $390 for the set. They stand 2' tall with the boots on. I have 3 "D" rings attached as well. They weigh about 80 lbs. gross, together with the bands, boots, filled with gas, & valves. I am the original owner. Rated at 3500 psi they hold 160 cu ft.

      Hi Nick!
      Great to see y'all last weekend! We had some great dives at Peacock that weekend and this past weekend. We also dived Madison yesterday....gorgeous! It's starting to get HOT gearing up and the bugs are definitely leaving their mark, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else but near and in the water!

      I'm heading to Marianna Friday evening for the workshop. Maybe I'll see ya there?

      Dive safe, and dive A LOT!

    Hi - Nick here (texey)

    Been diving since 1970. I keep a log book of all my dives.
    Have 848 dives logged in since then. Most of my diving has been since 2007. Only 61 dives logged before 2007. I'm trying to make time to do at least eight dives a month now.
    I have passed my Full Cave course in Dec. 2009.
    I just reached my 507th cave dive on 11/24/17.
