    Michal -- great meeting you and Lubo. Looking forward to going inside the Milwaukee Car Ferry next time up. Phil has some great video from that penetration dive w/ Lubo...

    And yes AA, Phil is that great looking diver in the video, but as they say, a good photographer can do wonders ... It was nice being able to shoot Phil for a change versus the other way around..

    No doubt Jitka rocks, both as Captain and an Accomplished Cave and deep CCR diver. Not many captains dive to 400 feet in 36 degree water (the Bradley)... Shipwreck Explorers in the best charter to use IMHO. Especially if you are CCR..

    See you guys soon...

    Phil - Nice videos.

    Andrew - Hope everything worked itself out.

    One thing that I noticed, besides those zebra mussels, where is the rest of the wildlife? I didn't see one fish in all of those videos. I guess I'm just used to see a thriving community on all the salt water ship wrecks that I dove.

    Can't wait to see the pics and videos! . If it makes u feel better we never had good enough weather to go to the Gilbert or Franz. These ships being in the middle of lake Huron require perfect weather. Next time!!!

    Bummer we couldn't hook up but having lunch while one person is inside of a metal tube and the other outside is difficult at best.

    The Brat Stop was calling you guys. Plus the classic double header of Lakefront Brewery and a Brewers game is hard to beat.

    Come back next year!

    I will definitely be there again next summer - hopefully with Ozzie mike. So we'll do beers and brats then.

    No post effects of the bends apparently -I've done 8 sub 200dives subsequently with no hassles. And this weekend I'm trying out my new dry gloves!
