    I wonder if they drink warm beer. I know I would! (as long as I had a pee valve installed. :P)
    Please PM me if you need any help.

    It looks warm enough to me... the water's still liquid.

    That looks like a lot of fun, not to mention delicious.

    What part of Alaska do you need to go to do this? And what time of year?

    How is the diving even if you suck and don't manage to pull out some crabs?

    Sounds like something I should probably do. I have been itching for an excuse to return to Alaska anyways.

    Nah, no P-Valves for us... less holes in the suit the better =)

    Water temp in November is around 39-41f, was a balmy 45f this summer, and back down to 42ish already.
