    There was a large explosion at the NASA SpaceX launch site last week just feet from the ocean in Florida. Maybe Lowviz is doing final testing !!

    I just spoke with @lowviz

    He's still alive. The Florida explosions do not appear to be related to his mask testing. :D Life has gotten in the way. He'll be back to the mask testing and SB within the next week or two.

    Florida explosions? I don't watch the news, but I'm not finding it on google.

    It was something a previous poster referenced. Lowviz has stuff going on. I’ll see him in two months and I’m sure I’ll get the full story then.

    In the meantime, I have one of the Mako masks, like what Lowviz is testing. I have always had trouble with it fogging.

    I ran it through the dishwasher and it has been VASTLY better since.

    Do you flame your masks?

    Flamed the Mako mask several times and it still wanted to fog.

    @lowviz is still alive. We've exchanged a few emails over the past day or two.

    I’ve gotten messages asking how Lowviz is doing. He’s perfectly fine, but a lot of family stuff going on. He’s not even lurked on SB in months. I’ll be seeing him in a few weeks, and I’ll let him know folks have been asking about him.

    He did finally find a match for his one LP50 tank and he’s putting them together for baby doubles. Tickled pink he’s got his set now. :D
