    If things go to plan, I should reach my 1000th dive on Sun. Aug 31st. I will be at Pennyroyal Scuba, in Hopkinsville for the dive. I would like to invite old, new & even dive buddies I haven't met yet to join me on my milestone dive! :D

    Congrats! I'm quite a while away from 1000.

    You know, to celebrate 1000 dives, it's good luck to pay for all air fills for all divers in attendance.

    A big congratulations from sunny Kalifornia where recreational diving began!

    You have achieved a big milestone in your life that is attained by few divers and admired by all divers.

    Enjoy your 1000 dive!

    Congrats on reaching a major diving milestone! My girlfriend and I will plan to join you (we are your students on Saturday).

    I'll have my Photo rig so hopefully I can get a good shot for you to commemorate your 1000th.

    You are going to be wet --so go for it~
    Take lots of pictures and post them of your 1000 dive.
    (Maybe even have a swig of Kentucky Bourbon and branch water!!!!!!!)

    I will be there. And according to the last Facebook post from Pennyroyal, vis was just outstanding. Hopefully it will hold.

    Sounds like I may even have some relatives on Sun ("Storms",... hint, hint.....):zap:. I guess the worst that could happen would be that I, and my gear will get wet...:D
