    Pool was full last Sunday so I’ve gone back to the recumbent bike. Up to 12 miles in 53 minutes.

    Remember me talking about the rebreather a few months back? Well, I was fun diving with the Madison dive shop and instructor was doing a rebreather class for two guys. One of them has the exact unit I want to get. I took full advantage of this opportunity. Asked permission to go all over it. Even got to get into the harness and walk around with it on land to see how my knees were with the weight. Just fine! That guy is a few years older than I am. His eyes lit up when I mentioned I love Great Lakes wrecks. He said most of his buddies have stopped diving. He said he needs more buddies and we exchanged contact info. HE HAS A BOAT!! 26’ (?) cabin cruiser. I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot.

    That's wonderful, Tradd! Sounds like you may have a new diving buddy!

    Thank you!

    I’ve recently been introduced to two new dive buddies. One is a gal about my age I met through a mutual friend who has been raving about me for weeks. Another is a guy who has the same rebreather I want to get. More dive buddies are always nice!

    Got on the scale for the first time in about six weeks this morning and it showed I was down 12 lbs. I doubt it's that much, but maybe 5-6lbs is more realistic. Been working out a lot and have really cut back on the fast food.

    Also sent my instructor a message about ordering the rebreather I wanted for training in the spring. This is so exciting!
