    Has been a fixture in our community for quite some time. We have all wondered at his courage as he pursues his dream to do the impossible. Please feel free to ask Matt any questions and to cheer him on as he moves toward his goal to dive in the Keys.

    Pete....Thanks for putting this up. It's well deserved and I hope our diving community will come to the challenge below.

    OK all....Here's our chance to help Matt achieve his dream. Now I know he's dove the lakes around MN, but let's get together and help him get down to some diving in the Florida Keys.

    I've stepped up to the plate and donated $1,000 towards his cause and will also donate my resources at our dive shop, now I challenge everyone to help Matt by donating something to his cause. You can find a donation link on his website at http://divingadream.org....Please help.

    Good Diving,

    Thanks Capt Gary and Pete for putting up this forum to help me. Also thanks for the great words. Well I can;t wait to get in saltwater to see some sharks. There's one thing Capt Gary, you might have to drag me out kicking and screaming. I won't want to leave LOL.

    H2Andy I didn't bribe anyone to get my own forum, I just have some really good friends.

    I have a new knife and a BC to try out.

    Here's the link to my donation part of the web site. http://www.divingadream.org/HowToHelp.html

    Take care everyone and safe diving everyone.

    Sincerely, Matt :confined:

    Hey guys,

    Okay, I'm just now getting my butt in gear and participating on Pete's board.

    I love you guys, we've come a long way so far. Matt knows who his buds are. And he's not done diving of course.

    Capt. Gary, what can I say man? I've never met anybody like you. I'm a lucky guy to know you. Pete, you have the number one Scuba media interface in the WORLD and a NICE GUY.

    I agree Doug, Pete, your board kicks butt. :luxhello: And Gary you rock, the best Capt that you could ask for and one hell of a friend :pirate2: and Doug your one hell of a loyal friend. You have been such a big help, your always helping me get the dive gear that I need. You also know what to say when I'am down and out. :kicknut: LoL

    I guess what I'm saying is that you guys are such great friends. And you know yet guys I'm not done diving yet there's all kinds of diving to be done yet.

    The next big dive I want to conquor is the cage dive with the great whites.

    Here is two links to shark companies out in California.
