    Hey Friends,

    I was under the water in the pool yesterday for 35 minutes! I felt
    great once again. I would have done longer, but we were monkeying
    around getting my mask positioned correctly, it kept leaking in the
    beginning. But we got it worked out. Next time in the pool I would
    like to hit 45 minutes and go to the deep end and see how I can
    tolerate going deeper than 5 feet.

    My friend and dive buddy Drew moved me around under the water all over
    the pool as well. At one time in the pool I was about 5 feet under.

    I was able to be rolled onto my stomach at the end of my dive session,
    it was a blast. I didn't even need anyone to support my head in that
    position.

    My other friend and dive buddy Frank took some great pictures and
    videos, the pics are posted on my page here...

    This is so much fun to be doing! Take care everyone.

    Fantastic Matt!!! We just gave the medical release forms to my fiances doctor yesterday. He said he would have to look them over. She said he looked at her and asked her why she wanted to do it. She told him her reasons. I guess he'll be calling me be cause I sent an introductory letter. You really inspired her. We'll be setting up her sb profile this weekend and I'll let her see your update tonite when I get home from work. Congrats man!! Wish you were closer. I'd love to dive with you. And I'm sure my fiance would like to see it also.

    Great job! That's 2 posts from me today!

    I've been following your diving dream since I got my HSA buddy cert and it's amazing how far you've come in a short time. I wish more OW students had your passion and determination- it would make my job as a DM much easier.
