    A fine presentation of what we local divers -as well as visiting divers to California- are thankful to have in resources and emergency services, compared to other "third world places" like in the links below:

    Yer so correct !

    I question how many have ever met a real in the flesh board certified Hyperbaric doctor ? or had the opportunity to set down and have a one to one conversation ? or had a casual lunch with one ?

    Or attended a day long lecture of so many acclaimed experts in their respective fields ?

    The answer is a "A very small percentage of the diving population"

    Hope to see you there some day

    Born, raised, graduated from UCLA & still currently reside in Los Angeles County, the Birthplace of Recreational Scuba: where you can snowboard/ski in Winter Mountain Wilderness; then turn back around to swim, surf & night dive in Kelp Forests at Mainland Beaches; and finally come home to Suburbia with a perfect Mediterranean Climate --all done within either a span of 12 hrs, or a leisurely paced Weekend. . .
    !
    And you can also visit the desert or a foreign country

    Or take a leisurely drive north up to SLO and attend the Diver Education Conference and cavort with USC grads-- you possibly heard of the school --- University of Spoiled Children

    If interested Karl drives up in the AM and returns after the program - I suspect he would enjoy the company
    (currently Karl is under the weather - flu !)
