> Doing OK. The part-time gig has come to an end and I am full time
Congratulations on that. I still have a few years to go before I want to
retire, but I'm looking forward to it. I plan to raise goats and make
cheese in my retirement.

I will go with whomever will take me out to the pretty blue water. I am
not looking for tech diving, just some nice warm clear blue water single
tank stuff. IIRC, all of the ops you mentioned use old crew boats, which
are indeed vomit comets. I did a lot of 6 pack stuff from there in the
90's, and that is what I prefer, but I will go with whomever is going out
to the blue water.

Yup, had the same problem out of Hatteras last year, that's why I'm going
now instead of September. Unfortunately, my good friend Johnny P has
ceased his Hatteras operation. It is a shame, because it was a much
shorter boat ride to the wrecks.
> Heading to Bonaire in November.
My last trip there was not so good, as we had tanks stolen from our truck
and also caught 2 kids trying to break into it in town. The diving was
primo though. I have done several trip to Bonaire, and the petty theft
thing pisses me off enough to make me reluctant to go back.

As we discussed, I always clean a new gun before shooting it. My
Bodyguard has been perfect. I'm glad to hear that yours is behaving.
I've been trying USPSA shooting, and so far I am not up to the local
competition, but I will get there.
