    Well, we finally got our act together & decided on some dates for our trip. Feb 13 or 15th leave & get back 7 or 8 March. I may go a couple of days early to see some things or stay later. But we are doing 4 days diving in Dahab with Dive Urge and 3 day with King Snefru mini safari live aboard to dive the Thilstegorm. Then a land tour with a Nile cruise.

    No ladders but even I was able to get back into the zodiac when there (no upper body strength 🤗 ) You hand up your weight belt and bcd, then use your fins to kick and arms to pull yourself up and in. Others in the boat will help pull you in if needed. I had the technique down by the second day.
    We dId a liveaboard with Sea Serpent Fleet and had an awesome time. Would love to go back!

    That's way I did it as a kid with my tank and wieght belt still on. But 40 years later I'm not as strong. I'll make it somehow. I've had to learn to get up without kneeling and deal with a left shoulder that won't take much right now.

    got our air tickets there and back. Have reserved our Dahab diving and waiting to hear back from the dive boat people. Our land portion is set up with flights, hotels, drivers ect. so if the boat falls thru we just dive more at Dahab. So we are set to go. Except getting gear serviced and batteries changed and maybe me losing some weight????
