What other things interest you our do you put your time into? I have always enjoyed the great out doors! I was a member of the Hemet Jeep Club, the oldest jeep club in the country and have been in or on just about every Off-Road vehicle thought of. I still have my jeep and have used it and my truck to dive. I have had a dune buggy (Used it in Baja to dive), motorcycle, ATVs, and now a Yamaha Ranger! It would be great for diving if the authorities would let me drive it down to the water! LOL. I have watched for over 40 years the government lead by the Dumocrats close off more and more land to public use, but while I can I will foight them and enjoy it! Also a Life NRA Member and Golden Eagle!

What do I do if not diving?
It's a little thing called work!
I'm a nurse, and it's time consuming. Diving is a great release.
I used to bowhunt, but that got to be too much especially when the wheather turned cold. Then I took my bow indoors for target practice. I don't do that anymore my bow and archery stuff burned in a house fire 4 years ago, and I have used dispoable income for diving only.
So now I just work. :(

When not diving I spend a lot of time thinking about where to dive next! ;)

Other than that, riding the Harley, skiing/snowboarding, fishing, love the outdoors in general and, of course, sitting at work checking the latest updates right here. Always something entertaining to read! Ssshhhhh, don't tell the boss!

Remember only Dumocrats close Land & Trails! :p

At a little sand box called Glamis! But it's getting smaller every year thanks to Finstein & Boxer!

Good question papa!

When i'm not diving - I also work (at a local resort), I only get two days off during the week and at the moment, they are taken up with other things. I also have access to a multitude of beaches to languish on and swim in the glorious caribbean sea (am i making anyone envious yet???!!!). There's also the sulpher springs to go and soak in a mud bath. Going out with my husband to western dances. Yeah think that covers it.

Wait, I"m not diving now... I post on the net..
Seriously, day dream on where I"m going this weekend...
Pull the center section of my dive magazine out and hang them on the wall.
Visit the dive shop and hang out... Networking...socializing.
Research... tend some diving event, like meetings, or get togethers..
stare at my gear and wonder why having 7 sets of fins or masks for example is still not enough.
Oh yea, I also shoot hand guns.. but bullets are getting expensive so I buy more dive gear. Then I ask "is 8 sets enough?"

Okay, your hooked! :) When you start thinking about dry time as "Surface interval" or How much Nitrogen you are still carrying by Wednesday you have it BAD! Lets see 27 hrs until I leave for Fiji! Hummmm! :D:rolleyes:

Are you trying to convince me or yourself? Anyway stereotyping is not a great trait.

I am not for closing land or trails to the public. That being said, that is not the problem we deal with on the east coast. Pretty much all of the land out here is private property so there are not too many places to go trail riding. Fortunately though, there are private off road parks in my area. I am very thankful that they are there, and I try to go as much as I can.

Yes, Dumocrats close land, Trails, Dunes, and anywhere anyone might have fun especially if it is free!!!!!


One good rain and no one could tell we were ever here! Salt Creek area of Southern Cal.

If I tell you here some Dumocrat will close it down even more than it already is! And it has been restricted very badly like all the places worth going! PM me and I will let you know where it is!

Here is a new video I shoot in an area the Dumocrats and BLM are trying to close! The trail is over 50 years old, but what do the facts matter! Families are no longer impoertant, just controlling all you do!

Oh, that is the place the Ripoffublicans are trying to take away from us. They want to take away everything else, so what else is new? :cool:

No, as most times you have it backwards! Dumocrats are calling it "Wilderness" as an excuse to close it, so only rangers can go on our tax dollars! BTW only three Dum-Repulican'ts voted with the Dumocrats to steal our money! Half-Billion to BLM! WAKE UP America! Our you won't be doing anything including diving! The Dumos are coming for us next! :eek:
