    Congratulations!!!!!!!!!
    Just keep diving as much/often as possible.
    I once heard that it was bad luck to let your gear dry uot completely....LOL
    And remember that scuba diving is not in the least addictive.
    Have fun and dive safely.

    Spectrum, I actually read all of that info before I left. Loading the suit with warm water was fabulous!!

    Ogre, we did some shoredives off of Comox, then a couple boat dives on Quadra. I'm still giddy.

    Hi Cooldives,

    We did a couple dives at King Koho (Comox), then Copper Cliffs & Row or be Towed (?) (Quadra).

    Everything was set up for us by Pacific Pro Dive, and our boat captain on Quadra was with Abyssal Diving.

    I still have scuba-brain. My business partner is getting cranky with me - can't keep my mind on work.

    Yeaaaaaahhhhh!

    Congrats. I just wish you had more inland opportunities to dive and didn't have to travel everytime you want to get wet.

    Although, from the looks of my house, dogs, car, and pocketbook, a little less diving and a little more home-time could be a good thing.

    Nah.

    Your friend in Michigan!

    Oh, the scuba-brain thing only gets worse . . .

    Congratulations on your certification! Now you need to come back and really dive the BC area, and find out how much beauty and life there is in our cold Northwest waters.

    I'm thinking that I might have 4 days off in a row at the beginning of December....

    Where can I fly to, dive and fly back quickly?

    How many divorces are caused by scuba?
