737 Reef

I love flying and scuba diving, so it would seem only natural that I’d like this. It’s a cool idea, yet somehow still very sad.  Of course, much like Homer crying as he eats the last buffalo, I’ll still dive the wreck. I don’t know how airliners are supposed to die.  It sucks to see them cut up, parted out, melted down, sunk, or… Read more →

Foo Fighters Good; Sony Bad

Normally I wouldn’t take note… Read more →

Diving in La Paz

Well, I’ve got the scuba gear packed, the regulator overhauled, the books picked out, and the passport in my pocket. I’m outta here — on my way to La Paz, Mexico. This should be a fun trip. Traditionally the group I dive with alternates between Cozumel and San Carlos since we have good connections in both places, but this year… Read more →
