    Hi everyone, Thought I would share with all of you that I did a 50 min, dive in the pool December 30th. We had a winter storm out side, but I didn’t want to miss my dive. I was under
    about 5 feet. I wanted to do an hour but came ten min. short of that hour, but I didn’t have any equipment
    adjustments this time. I did have one funny thing happen with my attached latex hood on the dry suit; it must have had a foul in the neck seal because my head like a beach ball. LOL. WCCO did spot on me it is part of CBS. They wanted to stay longer but where cut short but it still well be a good report. I hope to get a copy of it but they well not give me a copy. I hope to get one some place. They did say they well do a follow up at my OW dive.

    I can’t hardly wait for my next dive.

    Good news the comms worked out pretty good for the first try. I found out that when I am UW I need to have to wait for the vent to give me a breath to talk, like Superman used to do. But when I am above water I talk as much as I want too. LOL. Next time it will be better. It well be better in OW. Too much interference in the pool. Next time I well have OMS back plate and harnis to help me with my weight issue.

    Here's a link to a new photos … http://matt55125.tripod.com/scuba/

    Take care everyone and Happy New Years!
    Matt

    Right on, Matt!

    You may have to get somebody to record a VHS tape of the WCCO story. Would be great if CBS picked it up for the national news, too.

    By the way, was 50 minutes because you sucked your tank down or were there other issues terminating your dive?

    Happy New Year!

    Hey jim ernst
    Thanks for the great message. As far as my OW it is planned for this coming summer, one in Lake Wazee in an old taconite mine and then in warm water that same summer, someplace like the Bahamas. Thats what a part of my fundraiser is for, the one that John Chatterton is coming to speak at. We still have more tickets to sell, so if anyone wants to come meet us, go to my diving a dream.org site and get some! Take care and thanks so much for your kind words.

    Matt
