    Coming on to a new year

    Okay, what are your plans? I got hit by the bends and can't dive until April, but I plan to make up for lost time after that! No posts in this forum since October. That's embarassing!!! Come on Great lakes, lets rock!

    No big plans, since i moved back to Alabama, i have not dove open water. I still get wet at space camp, volunteering there doing discover scuba. I am loving it. Probably won't get any open water time till summer.
    I'd dive that.

    In March, I will be in Florida for my step son graduating from D.A.V.E. school, so hopefully will be able to dive the BHB. In July, I will be going to San Diego to visit the other stepson and new grandchild, so hopefully will be able to dive in San Diego and the Coronado Islands in Mexico. In December will be going to Sandals Whitehouse in Jamaica and will dive there. I will be finishing up my Advance Trimix. We will do that either in Lake Michigan or possible at Captain Johns, Oronogo. I want to do it at Captain Johns. When the local lakes get to be about 45, I will get in as much diving in the local lakes as possible unti it turns cold again.

    like others, no real plans. The wish list is more dives, a new years dive at Oronogo and possibly Bonne Terre. I'd love to get down to Florida and BHB as well as a few other areas to meet and dive with some more great folks from the forum.

    I have been diving for one year. I started with the goal of diving wrecks in the Great Lakes.My first year of diving was spent working on skills and knowledge, so this is the year that I will make a trip to Tobermory, Mackinac or Alpena. I like to dive the quarries in Ohio: Gilboa, White Star, and Portage. I already have a Gilboa trip planned.

    My goals for 2012 are:
    • 50 Dives (or equivalent bottom time) on Beaver Lake
    • 2 Flower Garden trips
    • 1 Florida trip
    • 1 San Diego trip

    Also, I want to finally get my DM cert. My boys are almost to the age where they can do Jr. Open Water. I'd really like to be a part of their training...

    If I can do all that, I can honestly call it a good year!

    Oh yeah, I'm also doing my first triathlon in 2012. Gonna be a busy year!
    i'm not as think as you drunk i am ...

    The company is planning some major changes in their main software application so there will be a lot of black out days for vacation. If you add my school schedule I may be on lock down the whole year. The thought is killing me but can plan for next x-mas I guess.

    I'll spend the year getting my new camera rig ready and invest in a BP/W set up. If I can't dive I can at least shop for it.

    Last year wasn't my best. I'm starting the year with:

    - New house
    - New gear
    - New dog
    - New job

    Planning on:

    - More diving
    - Even more diving
    - Getting my EFR instructor cert (I did the work just have to fill out paperwork)
    - Get a CKC Grand Champion title for my dog (100 more points and an agility title)
