I’m in Belize City tonight.

We’ve been building a church up near the Mexican border in a little village called San Roman.

Today we went to the Lamanai Mayan ruins.  One a boat through the jungle.  Amazing trip, I highly recommend it.

Tomorrow we are going out to the Cayes for the best snorkeling in the world...except for maybe Australia. 

Been a great trip.  Headed back on Friday.

The GBR is big, but the biodiversity at the Reefs near Belize blows Australia's reefs out of the water, no pun intended.

If you get the chance, I highly recommend a night dive/snorkel. Really spooky and you get to see completely different wildlife.

Regardless, have fun.

Found out I’m going to South Stann Creek and Dangriga in July. That’s not a usual tourist destination, but to me that’s almost home.

Night dives can be the most fun of the bunch. Weird things happen under the water at night, especially in the ocean/sea.

My strangest dive was Maeda Point, Okinawa down the reef at night. You definitely had to plan around the tide. Otherwise you'd drown in 3 feet of water attempting your exit.

Miss the old days on Okinawa. Logged over 350 dives from the northern tip of Okinawa all the way down to the Kerama Islands. Did PADI basic open water, advanced open water with peak performance buoyancy, nitrox, search & recovery, and rescue diver.

Was attempting to get brought in as a Divemaster student when I got orders back to the states that wrecked my plans.

I was fortunate enough to have a job where I was done at about 2 pm. I could be in the water at about 3-3:30, depending on where I was going to be diving. Get through two tanks, with a snack in between the two. Be out of the water and at the izakaya by about 7:30-8:00 drinkin a cobeer. 

The out-of-the-way dives were reserved for the weekends. I was stationed at MCAS Futenma at the time for reference.

I'm an odd Arkansan diver in that I've never dove fresh water.

My equipment may be old, but well maintained:

Oceanic Chute III BCD (Back Inflate is the only type of BCD to use IMO)
Integrated Oceanic Air2/LPI
Mares V16 Proton Stage 1 & 2
Force Fins
Reef boots
Kevlar Gloves

I've never been picky about my mask, snorkel, or suit. I have a 7mil suit for winter diving and a body glove shorty for late spring/summer/fall. Well, I should say that I've had them. I'm positive that I couldn't squeeze my ass in those suits even wearing a man-girdle. Now, I'm sure my BCD fits much better though.

Far and away the best course I've ever taken was Peak Performance Buoyancy. Like period.

I'd love to dive more, but it's just too expensive. I think it'd be awesome to do a drysuit dive under the polar sea ice. However, I'd need way more than the 5 or so that I've logged... Though, those dives have been in pretty cool places such are the Poor Knights Islands in NZ, the GBR, and then also Beaver Lake in Arkansas...

I don't dig having anything in between me and the glorious open air. I'm an open water diver.

I don't do caves, I definitely don't do wrecks (entering them).
