Because...

Spending thousands of dollars on gear and training just to not dive would not be a wise investment. Or atleast, that's what I tell my self to justify the cost of travel to dive sites these days...

Because I tend to pass out or get a headache when I hold my breath for a very long time....

Because all the cool people I know dive. And I am so cool, I am ice! or at least I felt that way when I dove 42f in a wet suit.

I used to keep salt water aquariums, now I get to be the fish! Very cool to see them up close and in person.

college elective. was going to take personal finance, mom convinced me to take a "fun" class instead. i'm pleased with the choice, displeased with the cost of entry!

How much did you have to pay? I took my OW course at Ohio State University and everything was included.

fees were in the area of $180 on top of the 2 credit hour course fee. picked up mask ($80), fins ($90), snorkel ($15), boots ($30) at LDS with 10% off.

i was mostly talking about buying your own gear! even though i've gotten some ridiculous deals, it's still a very expensive hobby. tusa rs-130 1st and 2nd stages and mares viper brigade octo for slightly under $200 (from Nitrowill), XR1 for around $100 (from Hoobascooba). i actually feel kind of bad for finding these deals because i was going to buy those exact things from ST before seeing them up in the used gear section! i was amazed! i'll have to pick up some other stuff from ST to make up for it =)

looks like i'm a grouper? perfect timing!
