    I have been gone from this arena for a couple years, and have recently lost my dive buddy. He got older and went away to school and now he has that college thing going. Therefore, I am swimming alone in the ocean, so to speak since my wife doesn't dive. Since recently discovering the "new redesigned" scuba forum, I was wondering if anyone else out there is free to come and go whenever those real good travel deals pop up without the encumbering "job and family ties" that bound us up for all those years. Just looking for chances to get back into the regular diving thing/.......Larry

    Seems I just like to go places where the water is warm and vis is long. I have been to Bahamas, Grand Cayman, Coz, Florida Keys. Like to do video when I can. Am able to get away pretty much anytime a good travel value presents itself. Have not done much spearfishing, but did do it to eat in Florida. Am originally from Garland Tx, BTW. Also the first College elegible male who DID NOT attend Tex A&M. makes ame the black sheep, I guess......Larry

    Sometimes I can fit this description. I too like to dive only in warm water. My hubby is not as addicted to diving, nor does he have as flexible a schedule as I do.

    I'm PADI AOW certified with about 60 dives logged.

    Feel free to give me a yell!

    Do you ever watch the special deals available on short notice from many of the Tvl agents or live aboards who suddenly have a spot or two available for a trip they would like to fill. I find it is much easier to just keep a bag packed and pick up and go, rather than try to plan. Seems when I schedule something, my employees find a way to nuke it at the last minute....so I sneak out and they never know.......Thanks for the reply...Larry

    Larry ---

    How do you keep track of or get notice of last minute specials?

    Are you willing to share that little secret?

    Liz, someone posted on one of the other boards here about a good deal to Coz from Denver. Last minute deal and all that....Not a big thing, just by looking at the Island Dreams Web site, things like that...It is just really tough for me to make plans for a trip in August 2002, know what I mean...Larry

CAn't believe I drive 600 miles to watch a race that lasts 26 minutes........Oh well.....where do you go from San Diego and is it decent interesting diving...???? I have read lots of articles, etc, but never went down there to dive..Larry
