    Here are a few pics from around the event in this Photo Gallery album. I wanted to get in on the diving, but this is as close as I could get, yet - considering that I started out 1,753 miles away, I closed the distance considerably.

    This is Matt with Beth - one of his previous nurses who just recently took up scuba diving so she could be in the water with him, his step-mom, sister Sarah (who turned 11 that day), dad, and granddad - who backed out on going out at the last minute opening up a space for me on the chase boat.

    Hey all, Thanks for all the support it means a lot. It was great to see you some of you at the scuba party.

    It was awesome being in salt water. It was so beatuiful down there. I can't wait to get back to it.

    What will I do after this awesome dive? To dive as long and as much as I can. And I'am going to finish my life support system and I also want to do a shark dive. I would like to help other handicapped people like divehart does to dive. I would like to protect the sharks also.

    Well I'll post some pics later along with a dive report when I get some time.

    It was one awesome trip that I will never forget.

    Well again thanks everyone for all of your support. Especially Pete and Gary. Well Pete thanks for the new name it rocks.

    Matt

    I know there were two video-shooters, a sound man, a producer, etc on the dive boat both days for publicity productions, but are there no still shots of Matt in the water we can see now?

    I didn't get to shoot any, but didn't anyone who wants to show...?

    CBS will probably not release anything that they cannot make a few bucks on. Just the way it is. I still want to know when it will be aired.

    I thought they were with NBC? Anyway, the Producer said it'd be a few weeks, as she put it. It's possible that they won't use it at all, who knows.

    The other video-shooter was not with the network, tho.

    And still shots take no time to load in a gallery somewhere. Did anyone get any? I'd like to see...
