Not long ago, I made a post about dive industry people not responding to customer inquiries. Specifically, I named SubGear and Jack’s diving Locker because I had recently attempted to contact both–more than once. Within a day, I was contacted by Andy Woerner of Jack’s Diving Locker who had seen my post and expressed concern that […]
In an earlier post, I indicated that I’ve used the SubGear XP10 Dive Computer with my MacBook Pro, which was true at the time; however, since my decompression software runs on PC, I have always used a NetBook for everything related to diving. That way, I only take one, much smaller and way less expensive […]
I’ve been meaning to comment on the fun dives in Monterey last weekend ever since I’ve been back. The short version is it was great. The diving was great. The weather was great. The people were fun to be around, and we all had a great time. Sierra Diving Center offers “fun dives” as an […]
I’ve been spouting off for the last few months about December’s planned dive trip to Kona. This is just one of the great things about diving in Hawaii… whales. This was actually at the end of the dive. We had finished diving for the day and were headed back to the dock when a call […]
Chamber Day 2011 Catalina Chamber Day is Wednesday, May 4. All proceeds support the Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber. Cost is $90, plus $30 for food and air, and includes 2 dives aboard one of several area dive operators.
Lake Tahoe’s Emerald Bay was once the site of the Emerald Bay Resort. I believe the resort was in operation from the late 1800’s until around 1920, but I’m not sure about the exact dates. When the resort was dismantled, a lot stuff was shoved into the bay, including a boat dock and diving platform […]
When it comes to customer service, I’ve gotten pretty used to disappointment. With all that is affecting the air travel industry, I understand the diminishing level of service and the ever-increasing price of a plane ticket. I don’t like it, but I get it. Hawaiian Air really angered me a year or two ago when they […]
Diving the Kona Coast, Hawaii I’m still trying to fill two more spots on the Kona trip for December, 2011. It’s a great deal so that won’t be a problem. In the mean time, whenever I stumble across an article or other interesting piece building up to the trip, I’ll post it. This one’s from […]
This is a short video clip from a diving trip to Kona in 2007. It’s not all that sharp because I uploaded a lo-rez version that I had handy. We also encountered a manta ray on that same day! Needless to say, I have been dying to get back to Hawaii. Obviously, there are much […]
I’m starting to think seriously about organizing some dives for vintage nerds like me at beautiful Lake Tahoe this Summer. I am pretty sure that I can arrange a special room rate at the Tahoe Biltmore in Crystal Bay, as well as lake front dining specials nearby. Contact me (email@example.com) if you’re interested.
