Thanks. Not sure if I'll make it or not, but would really like too. Since my wife let me take the trip to Bonaire, I'm trying to put the dive trips on the back burner and do the family thing, just to keep the peace a little. But, who knows, if things fall together would be worth a drive down to Oronogo and meet a few friends in person.

Kenny, PM me if you have some specific questions about Bonaire. There are a few things you need to know....for one, when you get off the plane go ahead and pay your departure tax and get the stub. This will save you time when you leave and I have also heard some say that at times the office isn't open when you plan to leave. If you don't have the stub, you don't get on the plane to leave.

No $hit...Been there many times with a single... No worries! Talked to Kev. tonight and it told him I was going to just FUN dive. He is cool with it either way....So, Let's do some good dives..
The "Flywheel", The "Sign" and in and out through all the "Doors" Don does a great job at leading this dive after visiting "Armageddon".

I would love to make this one but with my chosen profession I will have to work on New Years Eve till at least 11:00PM and getting any my employees to work on the 1 Jan would be impossible. Looking forward to the one in Feb see you all then.

Got off work at 11:30PM after our biggest single day in 7 years in business - over 700 bottles of Champagne sold. Will have to work from 12 to 6 on the 1st and will be just me and the wife - trying to make spending money for our trip. Hopefully Feb will see you guys!!!

Great dive today. Too bad it involved 48 degree water! Clay got some great pics of me, Dark Wolf and Beka, including one of me showing him that I think he is the #1 diver!

Kenny, Shala, and Braden were out there too. Braden-U gotta get used to the hood dude! LOL.

Thanks for a great day guys!

Good to meet ya Jason! I dove only with Dan Wegner New Years Day. He and I had to do a "Make Up" dive. Last time He and I were diving together I scared the Hell out of him and swam him into the doors and it was a SHOCK for him. So, We went into the doors again but ran a line. Showed him the LDS and then we did some exploring.
Sorry I didn't get to dive with you guys but I know there will be plenty of time this year for us to dive.

Going to work on growing out my hair so I can give Kyle a run....:smilie39: One of the guys was checking you out Kyle until you turned around....:yikes: Thats a DUDE.... I laughed my ass off...

We did use that line. We tied off outside the door then did a secondary at the pole just inside the door with the permanent line. Dan had the reel and was a little "Rattled". When I showed him the Perm. line just inside the door he was :smilie39: at himself. Went to the LDS and then came back and messed around inside the doors. This was his SECOND time in any Cave/Cavern Ever....
Gills was there doing dives with another instructor/friend of his. And he is Not really into Tec diving. Not that he wouldn't do the dive in 2009 but I don't think he had planned for it. No Doubles with him and he had very limited sleep. He is a Very SAFE diver and I've never seen him dive to get a ###.
But me on the other hand...I'm a idiot....Feb. 28th I'm diving with you guys....:smiley20:

Kenny - Thanks for pairing me with Braden. He and his buddy (Kevin??) and the girl I dove with (name?) were cool.

Question: Is Braden Gills? That dude had 1900 PSI left after our 26 minute dive to 94 ffw... Bastard...

Glad you had fun. Yes, Braden is "Gills" and the boy has a set at times. The other guy is Steve Volkmer and his girlfriend Shala Perez.
You may have heard them talk about Kevin. Kevin owns the Dive Shop that Braden and I work for. Braden teaches SCUBA at the local University and I Divemaster for him.

A Royale is a quarter pounder, because of the Metric System. I woulda thought YOU would get a Pulp Fiction quote right!!!

BTW, what is a Double Whopper with Cheese dive??? Could kill you but is a lot of fun???
