    Hi Everyone,

    I just wanted to let you know I did 45 minutes under the water
    yesterday! It was great! We went to the deep end again and I was
    under at about 5 ft deep. I turned onto my belly for about 10
    minutes, that, was really awesome!

    On the inside of my dry suit I have a connector that hooks my vent
    tubing to my dry suit, we found a hairline crack in it, and the air
    escaping kept making my dry suit blow up! I think I need to find one
    that is made of metal or some other sturdy material. We are going
    to check into it later.

    Next time I am hitting an hour. Thats the longest I am going to
    go. After that I am going to start spending more time on my belly, getting the bouyancy down pat. Eventually I want to work up to 6 ft under the water seeing how that goes.

    Here's a link to some new pictures I added of my pool dive
    yesterday... http://matt55125.tripod.com/scuba

    Take care everyone.

  3. Hey Matt!

    I was off the scubaboard for a while and just got back recently. I'm so happy that you've realized your dream and done some breathing underwater! I'm really thrilled for you! Good job sticking to the project, and please keep us updated on your progress.

    Woohoo! We have another bubble blower in our midst! :)

    Matt,

    I sincerely look up to you. Given the challenges you face I'm not sure that I could show the same gutsy determination and resolute strength of spirit that you do. I love reading these updates and I'm sure you'll push the envelope as far as you can. You've made a fan out of me.

    Hey Rob,

    Thank you! It feels excellent to be doing something different like this. I'm definitely not done pushing the envelope yet! I'm trying to get a Guiness World Book record entry for this, but man, there's a lot of red tape involved with that. Take care.

    Matt
