    Current chronological age: 53 (mental age questionable)

    Where do you live?
    Harrisburg, PA

    Where do you dive? Any warm water when I can get there. Dive hx does include some cold water, like the quarry here known as the Bainbridge SCUBA Center (where I was certified - BRRRRR!!!) and the Pacific off Catalina Island in SoCal. Favorite dive spots include Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Fort Lauderdale, and Bermuda. I've also dived off Tarpon Springs/Tampa in the Gulf, Key West, in a cave in Crystal River FL, and off the shores of Waikiki Beach in Oahu.

    Favorite dive shop? I love wandering around Divers Direct in Key West (salivating at all of the nifty stuff); online I also like All Things SCUBA and LeisurePro.

    Current certification? Just FINALLY got my AOW after years of false starts!

    Just got back from a great short trip to Fort Lauderdale (where I completed my AOW) diving four days and one evening/night on the reefs and wrecks there. Currently suffering from SCUBA withdrawal...:shakehead:
