Ya know, Bigman, you have deprived yourself of one of life's little (and most expensive) luxuries...buying gear after certification. Buy a little here. Discuss options for new gear. Buy a little there. Repeat. Upgrade existing gear. You have all your gear now, so it's like a kid sneaking into the hall closet, prior to Christmas, to see what shiny new toys he's got.

There is but one solution to this problem. After certification...SELL IT ALL. And, with the proceeds, buy shiny new stuff.

Oh...and since you appear to have unlimited funds, if you need a dive buddy, just call. You pickup my airfare, food, and hotel expenses; in return, I'll buy the first round at the nearest watering hole. Deal?
:smiley36::smiley36::smiley36::smiley36::smiley36:

Finally, if you have internet access during the cert class(es), start a blog/thread on this forum. After all we've heard here, I look forward to hearing of the adventures.

Heres one more hint. Don't take your camera underwater first dive or two.
Get used to diving and the enviroment first.

:smiley36:. Not unlimited three days after buying everything paying for the cert class, hotel, and such one of my tires had a belt blow out. Atleast one. Guess I get to buy new tires now. Suckey thing is the dam trip broke my bank account into little cent pieces:smiley5:. Atleast it is now rather then before I paid for all the good stuff

Tim:

Stud makes a good suggestion. If I introduce even 1 new piece of gear, my camera stays on the boat.

And, well, you'll be introducing a few pieces as well as a new environment.

I also agree and will take both of yours advise. Figure I will hold of for the cert dives a the boat dive we have planned and maybe use it on the shore dive we will be doing. If we end up planning two shore dives might hold off till the second. no hurry to take a ton of pics underwater. More the long haul end result plan.

I took a camera on my first ocean dive; The Hyde-Markham off of N.C
The seas were not too friendly that day (easily 6ft). The dives went well enough and the wreck was awesome (my first). Anyway, when my brother and I got back to the condo, the first thing our wives ask was; did you get any good pics? Huh????????? damn, I know I took that camera down with me. I must have lost it on the surface in the rough seas, and was having such a good time that camera didn't even register in my thoughts. Good thing it was a cheapo!
