    Firing my dive buddies

    Ok, so it's a crisp Autumn morning here in Melbourne. The sun is out and there's barely a ripple out on the bay. I'm about 60 minutes from the boat ramp, 90 minutes from slack water and neither of my buddies have arrived.

    Time to get some new buddies!

    a good buddy is hard to find, being late to an event is just being early to the conclusion of the event.

    I would happily join you, but its a bit of a haul from Boston.
    Good judgment comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment.

    but what if the buddy you sleep with is only a warm water wussie?
    I love the smell of neoprene in the morning

    "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me." Really, not showing up would probably only happen once before someone was off of my buddy list.

    I have a much more in depth dive buddy vetting process these days, though I haven't yet determined how to rule out the largely invisible DSM IV diagnoses, which are quite possibly, the most important to rule out.

    (Scotty, you need to get her out in NC on one of those "perfect" NC diving days, of which there are few, to get her suckered into the joys of larger marine life.)
