    I've gone to the (semi) dark side!

    I got my GEM training done last month with Doug Ebersole (debersole). All I can say is what a blast. The first couple of dives were a bit of a pain, I expected that. After that all was well. Doug seemed happy and I got my card. Now to change from a wet suit to a dry suit.

    Thanks Kristi. I think this picture was from dive number 4. By that time I was starting to feel comfortable with everything. I still need to practice but with everything, it will come with time.

    I would like to have done pool time but the weather just sucked. The water temps were cold enough for a dry suit. We made it work.

    It was nice to do a long 90 dive on 1200 PSI. My days of diving doubles for deco are gone.

    My bucket list includes diving the Uboat. I know it won't happen this year since I already have my summer booked.

    Re: I've gone to the (semi) dark side!

    Welcome to the semi dark side. I've been diving the GEM for a few years and love the unit. Lots of bottom time and it's a really easy unit to set up. Few moving parts. I have been using 40% Nitrox and find that it is a lot better that using a lower percentage O2. Especially when entering and leaving the water from the shore. Have fun.
