So, you finished your Open Water Course, Congratulations! Now What? Go dive!! Practice your new skills, work on your buoyancy, have some fun. The common question for a large percentage of new divers, especially for single divers, is “How do I go diving?”
Unfortunately the song remains the same; there is not much to chronicle under southwest Florida’s water so far this year. The bulk of our diving has been search and recovery... we had a wallet, glasses, and even a drone!
I’m not a huge holiday person but Thanksgiving has always been my favorite. Families gather (not that every relationship in a family is peachy) but many of us manage to put disputes and differences aside, if only for a day. We gorge on deliciousness to the point we have trouble moving, so we wobble to the couch and take a nap. How perfectly sensible is that?
An interesting observation I frequently make is how few divers utilize redundant air supply systems. The redundant system I am referring to is a separate cylinder, regulator, and submersible pressure gauge (mini button type is fine.)
I'm fairly certain we will reach that number, which should happen August 23rd of 2018. The question is: will it take place in the original and only dive shop where we've had the previous 19 anniversary celebrations?
