    Glad to see you can join us here on RBW. Always alot of information you can pick up from others. Thanks for the use of the pool. Greatly appreciate it. I have one more day to finish up this course and looks like I will be around to teach another rb course and maybe head over to teach a cavern course also.

    I am trying, believe me I am. Still have to get home and pay off all of the bills I have piled up. This is one wreck I want to dive.

    So i finally did my CCR Course, ended up doing it with IANTD and the Inspiration (instructor Stu conducted the course on Koh Tao), it was great fun and what they say about teaching old dogs new tricks was very fitting with me trying to get my bouyancy right on the first couple of dives . I am sure i will do more CCR Dives and training and within the next 4 months or so buy my own unit, but at the moment i am back on the open circuit in Dahab. Feel safer some how but not as fun , doing the blue hole tomorrow. take care and if anyone got any tips where to get an inspiration or a meg for a good price please let me know. regards jonas samuelsson,

    Glad to hear your having fun in Egypt, hopefully I'll get a chance to come visit you and dive the famous Blue Hole.
    It was a pleasure to have you as my first CCR student, I hope you get a unit soon and continue to practice the drills and skills which are essential to safe and successful CCR diving.

    Cheers
