Jim from dahlonega GA | Scuba Diver

I have many interests, Most of which I have been doing for a very long time. They include, mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, vertical caving, climbing, and most recently this scuba thing. I am a 10 year vet with the 82nd airborne division 325th parachute infantry. I was a machine gun squad leader, a combat medic. when I got out i became a paramedic. I have my own bc and regulator and 2 sets of 3mm wet suit, and im looking for a dive buddy with my little experience or preferably more. Primarily the local dives to start with, and progress from there. my eventual goal is to do wreck diving off my homeland of cape cod.(u boats) etc. I reload and shoot competetively .45 acp ,7mm remington mag, and evry other caliber. This’diving thing’ is a big turn on to me and may end up dominating over all the other things I like. I want to get more proficient at normal depths but, i am wanting to go deep eventually. with time comes experience. One final thing. Please dont confuse the desire to dive with the caving I do. They are not related. The caving is all about vertical rope work. multi drop or etc.. it is most probable that diving will not end up being CDS in the NSS. I want to dive frequently, get experience, get the required numbers towards advanced. Want to dive the quarry and the springs in fla. Need partners
