    If this is your goal, it’s a considerable ways away.....several levels of tech training and a lot of experience dives. And preferably several stepping stone wrecks......one, if I may suggest, should be “the Empress of Ireland”......in our own back yard. Best of luck on your journey.

    Not at all. Years ago I was looking at the curio shelf / memorial at my local LDS and noticed some crystal and china from the Andria Doria. I asked the owner, and he said they were brought up by Chris and Chrissy Rouse (this was their local shop). This intrigued me enough to learn more and to read "The Last Dive". Seeing these physical mementos was inspiring, even if I'll never dive that wreck.

    dberry,

    The Rouses, a very sad story indeed, and a prime example of the statement:

    ''There is absolutely nothing down there, worth your life"

    One of our biggest nemeses' is ''bucket lists'', some of us would live a lot longer if we never had one.

    Sorry, only my perspective as a funeral director.

    Rose.

    Then again, would we want to live longer without goals and dreams in our lives?

    Not saying you have to do stuff without thinking. You should prepare in the best way you can before you do something that can be dangerous, but not doing anything at all is always a lot safer then to do even a simple open water dive.

    A ship is safe in harbor, but that is not what ships are built for
