    Wife and I completed our OW Certification dives this past weekend. Although not ideal conditions, cold (water temp 64 degrees) and next to zero viability, we made it. Still had a blast aside from losing one of my integrated weight pockets on the very first dive of the first day.

    We did our OW dives at a sand pit near Shelton, Ne - War Axe. If you sat still long enough and then stirred up a little silt the crappy (usually 3" to 6") would get curious and start swimming right up to your mask.

    We had already booked our Cozumel trip, slated for Nov 7-14. Also hoping to hit Curacao with our local dive shop in Feb 2014.
