    Oh no! That sucks. What's happening?

    I love this idea! But you definitely need to get a move on picking out your next trip. :)

    I bought a pair of snoots for Merry and me. I hate spending money but I try everything I can to improve my photography. I'm hoping it is a gift that keeps on giving. I've bought too many that end up on Ebay.

    I'd really like a pair of poseidon jetstreams with the mk3 first stages. I'm really only interested in the first stages, but figured I might as well try out the jetstreams while I'm at it. Now I just need to convince my girlfriend it's a good smart christmas idea. If i would get my girlfriend a scuba related gift, I would buy her a drysuit with the socks and undergarment, since she's always cold underwater.

    Bringing the family to the Philippines... cobbling gear together... got the pieces, but need to get everything in a pool with the person it's for... that turns out to be tricky hard...
    Then, I seem to be convinced that that sort of trip kind of requires bringing a camera, housing, lights, stuff to hold it together... waaay over budget... camera and housing are happening (going the seafrogs & A6300 route).. lights may need to be a Franken-thing for this trip (with my "old" YS-03 and a for $35 bought Ikelite AF35, that I maybe should at least take into a pool before bringing it half way around the globe...).
    ...
    Does anyone recall a source for non-compressible foam for cut to your own size / geometry flotation?
