Scuba diving and the kitchen

Postby Randy Buckner » Mon Jun 19, 2006 1:21 am

I heard tonight that nine people died last year from shark attacks, whereas 791 people were killed by faulty toasters. I think I'll keep swimming with the sharks and stay away from the dreaded toast.

Don't they also have the giant pacific octopus up there in those waters as well?

They do indeed, however I'm a warm water weenie. We to to places like Yap, Palau, Little Cayman, Fiji, Cocos Island, etc. I've never dove in the PNW.

Yep, the cold water does funny things to weenies. (Apologies to Larry David.)

How was Yap and Fiji?
I've been to Palau (best place I've been), Chuuk, Great Barrier Reef and Borneo. Recently got back from Guam.

Yap sucked except for all of the women running around bare breasted.

Fiji was wonderful. Dove off of the Naia live-aboard. The E-6 dive site is unreal.

The best diving I've ever done was Cocos Island. Unbelieveable. You need to have 100-200 dives under your belt though. The currents do a number on you. We had two people blue water on us -- took us two hours to find them.
