Robert from Arlington TX | Scuba Diver

Dove in 1989-1991 near Guam, but not much after that except Saudi and the Gulf. Just got back into the water recently again, and love it.

Thanks for your comments Bill. I am up to the orientation scheduling and your comments were very helpful. I’d like to dive with you sometime, or maybe camp too. Rob

I’m camping tonight at CSSP. There’s a treasure hunt tomorrow at 10am. Hopefully good prizes. Come join us. I think at least eight from the Diving Rebels will be there. Someone’s bringing the Diving Rebel’s club banner I think so look for it. I’m in a silver Scion Xb.

Has anyone or know of anyone that is a volunteer diver for Moody Gardens in Galveston, TX, that lives in the DFW area and would commute down there? What is the experience like?

still waiting for rain and higher lake levels :), but generally, Saturday works better for me with all the Youth Orchestras in the DFW area and need to compute kids around for others interests too. Rob
