    Remember to remove Hollister wide bands directly after each dive! Kept one on for a couple of dives and ended up having to take a very long two hour shower with a pair of vice grips (pliers) to peel it off.

    The sight afterwards was just horrific! Think bruised, purples and blues. Even worse was trying to convince the wife that I had really only been diving that weekend!

    My personal favorite and one I have not only witnessed but done myself . Is make sure that undies are in the boat with you(assume nothing) double check this also counts towards socks as well, to often have they been left behind or on the drying rack in the house(diving in normal socks in 45 degree water is not enjoyable, trust me)

    It not only makes your day miserable when your buddy is badgering you the entire time and making fun of you in front of the nice looking waitress. However that particular incident(its happened a few times, usually results in a pub dive to check out the local sites, equally enjoyable) Resulted in two days later him admitting to me he had also forgotten his undies in his truck but figured he would just bash me in front of the waitress, well played on his part. He should have never told me that. Now its all out war!!! :)

    Being one of those people that prefers to go commando and do not even own a pair of underwear, it is a good idea to not drop your pants without verifying that you remembered your swimming suit.

    It only took me the one time to learn this lesson. At least I got a date out of it and she even paid for dinner.

    Remember to turn on the gas supply to the ADV. I have jumped with it off and sucked a lung before remembering Oh Sh&t hit the manual dil add (Inspiration). Fins.. been there done that too.

    Other CCR diver in a hurry to jump with a group didn't power up the unit. Weird mental state and no read out....lucky to have realized.. manual O2 add and power up.
