    Wish I could, we are out here for my job and my wife is on a full ride scholarship at the University of Arizona for her PhD. So in the meantime I'm working with my LDS to start DM in the fall. Its a long way to the ocean (about 7 hours to decent diving in Mex, 6 hrs to San Diego, and 6 to Hawaii) but I'm doing the best I can. And we go home to Fl as often as we can

    Somebody from the Big Easy made the same comment over on Scubaboard.

    Thank you for this list. I absolutely love it. I am 10 minutes from the Florida/Georgia border and actually feel kinda like a Floridian. It's just that I'm a Floridian who never leaves the area for hurricanes.
