For those who do not know...this was taken on Ray aka Latitude Adjustment's 500th LOGGED dive. (You can barely see the 500 on his slate...but alas he was distracted so I'm sure the slate was the LAST thing on his mind when I aimed the camera at him!) :fish2:

Seems he has well over 500 dives but was a bit lax in logging them. Well for rewards like that...I'm sure EVERYONE will be logging their dives in no time! :fish2:

ATTENTION DAN testers ... It is time to do the 48 hour report...
I attempted to do it on-line, however they did not accept it because I did not have the FRC's name & code :fish: ... If anyone else ran in to the same problem, I now know the answers :fish2: ... The FRC's name & code are: "Heather & Andriana"...



Thanks Karen....please don't forget to send your 48 hour report via mail, fax or online! Thank you all! -ww

p.s. one of you need to return your computer and report to me...I'll not reveal your name to protect the guilty! :fish2:


Hey WW, my 48 hour report has been mailed, so I should be up-to-date and complete. Thanks for the opportunity to try those computers!

Great trip, everyone!! The photos you are posting remind me how much less fun it is to be a working stiff than to be a hammock hound!!

My friend emails me jokes like this one ALL the time :fish2:

Butt Measurement

A man and his wife were working in their garden one day and the man
looks over at his wife and says "Your butt is getting really big, I mean
really big. I bet your butt is bigger than the barbecue grill."

With that he proceeded to get a measuring tape and measure the grill
and then went over to where his wife was working and measured his wife's bottom.
"Yes, I was right , your butt is two inches wider than the barbecue grill!!!"

The woman chose to ignore her husband.

Later that night in bed, the husband is feeling frisky. He makes some
advances towards his wife who completely brushes him off. "What's wrong?" he asks.
She answers: "Do you really think I'm going to fire up this big-ass
grill for one little weenie?"


...has nothing to do with the trip, but since I'm just sittin' here ripping all my CD's to my laptops docking station hard drive I thought I'd "tell a joke".
5 days til I fly to the UK :fish2: much to do, much not to do

:fish2: Keep on swimming, swimming, swimming...

p.s. this public service announcement is brought to you by your friendly nutritionist wench!



The poundage thing got my attention. What is the dose again??? :fish2:

Excellent joke :fish2:

I am so glad you won the dive trip, you deserved it. :fish:

Well I got in 20 dives on this past trip. So I am starting to plan another and would love to be with that someone special for my 100 dive, that is to get that underwater kiss. :fish2:

Thank you Chris, it will be fun to return to Fantasy Island---the diving was really nice. With so many places to visit and so little disposable income I usually visit some place once and save up for a year to dive/see the next dream destination on my list of places in the world.

As for my 100th dive and that Dam Special Kiss, well, I'm only 5 dives away from it, and I doubt I'll be diving with anyone "special" in the next month. Guess that gives me an excuse to be all :dance: next year at the singles thing, if I can take a trip at that time next year...


Where do you think you will visit next for diving (trip wise)??

:fish2: Keep on swimming, swimming, swimming...

I didn't get an underwater kiss for my 100th dive... :dance:
But then again, that dive was with a married dive buddy of mine... WHAT WAS I THINKING????

What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

Nope, mine didn't come true. For some reason, finGrabber and I never got to dive together.
But it was still one of the best trips ever, again!
Thanks to everyone involved with putting the trip together and thanks to everyone else for the fun time!

And if you can't be with that 'someone special' then consider being with a LOT of cool people on another SingleDivers.com trip! That way you can get LOTS of kisses to make up for not getting that one special kiss! :cool1:

Did anyone write down the names of the dive sites? If so can you post them here? The writer for the SportDiver mag wanted to know the names AND what your favorite sites were and why! You just might be quoted in the magazine article! But hurry...he has to submit his article soon! -ww

Ok..so your all back now. Iím kind of curious on the reactions to such a large group. (43) By far this is twice the size of a normal S.D. trip. So was it too big, too small or just right. W.W. has an uncanny knack for remembering faces and names, but wow this must have been a challenge.

Th dive sites we did off our boat are:

Insidius reef, Mary's Place, Newmans wall, Little French Key wall, Too tall too small, 40 foot point, Connies Dream, Coco View wall, French Key Bank, Missing Link, Ankas Place, Mr. Bud., Inside out, Valley of the King, Pirates Point and Gold Chain Reef.

My favorite was Coco view wall, nice long drift dive ending at the Prince Albert
