Spent 25 years as a Police Officer in NJ, and 32 years in the Army Reserves. Military Police, Armor, etc. Now I spend my time playing with Grandchildren, and teaching scuba. Now I also spend a lot of time on I made HSA Instructor in July, and look forward to doing more with the Wounded Warrior Program. I like talking to divers from around the would and aross America, I’m always open to new diving information. The more information I get the better diver I become. My most inspired situation was working with the Wounded Warriors project, I want to do more. That is why I did HSA instructor. Can never have to many dive buddies or to many dives.

Hi all. Very busy, but I am always thinking of my dive buddies.
I am having some problems with the site on my tablet, the drop down menus don’t want to stay down so that I can choose the menus that I want. I will keep trying, and try to catch up with everyone.
Miss you all

I understand how it is. I don’t own this shop though so we are kinda stuck trying to make it work for the time being. We are already very small in shop size and most of what we do is instruction so we are basically where you are. You are right about the net. It is killing scuba shops everywhere. Best wishes and Merry Christmas.
