    I get a bit concerned when I look back at old threads. I see that many of the posters haven't posted anything in three or four years.

    When my friend Shannon Helms was going through chemo she dived because she said the weightlessness made her feel better.

    I checked my last post in this thread, it was 2013, 4 years ago, still diving. Thanks for asking. :wink:

    Bill, did not know about your cancer until now. Sorry to learn of it. I had my 1st bout already and beat it.....for now.

    Hope you get well and wet soon.

    I was certified when I was 19, I will be 59 in 4 months....only thing I am ask is " where are you going that no one has ever heard of"? People seem to live vicariously thru my vacations.

    Sorry to read Doctor Bills bad news, best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    As for the thread, my partner is 63 and I am 58 ( toy boy jokes are banned). She dragged me off to Chuuk this year, it was my third trip and her first. Two dives a day and the second last day saw us in the holds of the San Francisco Maru.
    The only people who ask if I still dive are old diving friends who I haven't seen in years and who have probably not dived in years either. Most people ask us where have we been diving lately

    I'm 58 and Merry is 69, and yes I'm her boy toy. :)
    If the ocean would ever calm down we would get back on our scheduled 100+ dives per year.
