For all you looky lous.

Thu Jun 15, 2017 9:53 pm

I ran into fellow VDHer Tripplec, AKA Chris. We didn't get a chance to dive double hose, which was my fault because of course I had to interview 2 potential new employees today for my day job, which thereby limited my ability to scam out of work on a weekday, which as a consultant I categorically reject. Anyway, he had great things to say about Herman, BT, Greg "the lung" Barlow, and many others on here. He had a DAAM with a Phoenix and goodies, and I got to check out his way of diving double hose, which was cool.

So, Louie the Lurker, the lesson for you is that we are all pretty good people with a passion for diving. If you are the "guest" on the forum without a login, then stop by, get one, and participate. Contrary to popular belief, although we may give you a good-natured earful of shit, we are not tired of any of your questions. Tripplec and I had pizza, told lies, and I even got to show him the Kraken, a genuine as issued NONMAG, and the secret squirrel new prototype VDH single hose. We even talked about Regulator Savvy for hours like two old Jewish women trying to order at a NYC deli.

If you get a chance, visit with folks from the vintage diving community. I'm probably going to drive down to Oregon, which I apparently can barely spell, and Chris and I are going to go diving at some point in the future. I'm also going to force him to take my vintage equipment diving class if I have to give it to him for free, which I probably will. I would like to clarify that my last sentence referred to the class.

So, like Henry Rollins says in the song Liar, try to mix with us animals. In all seriousness though, stop by, ask questions, get a hard time, and learn about vintage diving. The old people are a little crotchety, the 5 of us who are "young men" are maybe a little overly enthusiastic, and the hippies are already run off...so get you a login and type stuff. If you are truly lucky, Captain Tom will teach you how to rebuild a regulator over the phone in his charming Louisiana accent and you just might learn something.

Lots of folks lurk on VDH and never actually sign up or log on. Ron in a roundabout way was asking them to jump in with us, be part of the group and participate/contribute to the forum.

It was awesome to meet you Ron. And a great opportunity for me to pick apart the new single hose and talk about the differences in old and new stuf. This trip has been a blast. If you ever do make your way to southern Oregon, hit me up. Sadly our good vis is you worst vis. But maybe we can take my boat out which is named The Sinkable II. Love the water up here in north Washington. Will have to bring my kids when they are diving.

A quote I love, "We need to really encourage the knowledge of the great historic heros of diving.....Of course they touched things under water instead of swimming with their arms folded. Never mind. Diving like so many things has gone metro."

Bingo. Apparently, my written communication somehow turned into a Hunter S. Thompson novel at some point.

Get a login, and be a part of the group.

There. :)
