    Thanks for the input. As I said, I have the mask, snorkel, fins and wetsuit. I found a good price on a wrist mount, non AI computer and got that, primarily as a depth gauge, bottom timer and ascent speed guide for now.

    I will have to rent for awhile, as I can't afford to get a BC new at the moment. I will keep an eye out for a good deal on a used one. I am leaning towards a back inflate, but not sure yet. After some research, I think I will look for a good price on an Oceanic Alpha 8. I suspect the reg is more "urgent" than a BC. I can't get the dried vomit issue out of my mind, but if I have to wait for several months, that's okay.
