    The very best way to rinse your dive gear.... put a kid on open circuit for the very first time.... 1f642.png :)

    Aidan and I have been zoom zooming in the community pool with snorkels. Today, I grabbed an AL40, slung it and gave him a reg... he rocked it.

    I remember my first time (high school) on SCUBA in a backyard pool... Aidan will remember this day forever.

    His first words? "My mouth tastes like crayon..." I could do about 20 minutes on this, its so funny... I'll just let it sit there.

    So proud of this lil guy. Time to get him some proper Scuba instruction. He is such a fish... he can spend a day in the pool and about half a day in the ocean. Kindred spirit for sure.

    Love this guy. What a post-dive afternoon.

    Grateful.

    This is what I'm saying!!! We talked about it at bedtime tonight....

    "When I was younger.... a lot younger (he's 11) I tasted crayons...."

    Me: How Many?

    "Enough to know I don't like how they taste"

    Me: Good. They're not candy, bro. Which was your favorite color?

    "They all taste the same...."

    Me: Ah, like M&Ms.....


    So funny....

    They let you take all that gear in the community pool? And where are all the other people?

    Just one rule, but most important, he should learn:

    LMAO @ Devil Spawn HOA School Marm.
    I have known those types, they always aspire to positions of HOA power.
    I committed years ago to never living in a HOA again.
    They all have Mini Hitlers

    Don't you want to rinse your gear off in freshwater and not chlorinated water? Especially the wetsuit?
