Well, the Big Sky is not so big now, with all the smoke from the fires. In fact, it smells like a campfire outside. Wish I were kidding :smiley5:

Anyway, I currently live in Western Montana, an hour east of Missoula, but I consider myself a world resident. I've lived in Billings, Lincolnshire (England), Oita (Japan), Tucson, and will soon relocate to Doha, Qatar. I'm a librarian, and will start my first job with Weill Cornell Medical College (Cornell University). I look forward to diving the Red Sea.

I'm a rescue diver, with 33 dives, and always looking for a dive buddy. I also enjoy learning from other divers.

As we'd say in Japanese at this point, yoroshiku onegaishimasu!

I'll be in your neck of the woods on Thursday! Flying up to Kalispell for a few days! Don't think I'll get any diving in!

Oh? This Thursday, or next Thursday? It's Dive Fest next weekend at Flathead Lake. Too bad the weekends coincide, as it's also DUI DOG Days in Seattle.

Yeah, I'm actually working with the medical school, and we're on the Doha campus. But based on the wonderful staff at Doha, I'm quite confident the staff in Ithaca are also superb. How can you go wrong with an Ivy League? :smiley2:
