hehehe mabe ive tried to get people diving and it seams that 1) to my surprise people who grew up in the north cant or can hardly swim ! they did great in the pool but when they had to jump off the boat in 2-4 waves and cant see the bottom they just freaked out :-/ and if that dont freak them out they just cant deal with the salt water in their faces !
but im up for a AA scuba trip i think that would be a blast EVEN IF IT WAS THE KEYS
i grew up 4 miles from the gulf so as a kid we were always at the beach ! which is why my girlfriend says im a frog in the water heheh

only thing that would make me jump out of the water would be a great white !

good luck keith

Hmmm let me see what I can come up with.

1. I love animals, and for the most part am very enclosed around people I don't know. Hence the outsider on the end of my name.

2. I had a girlfriend for four years, and she was my everything. But things happened and she moved to Florida a year ago. When she comes back we talk, and still call each other from time to time.

3. I drink, and on occasion drink heavily. I know it's not healthy, but sometimes it's easier for me to talk to new people that way.

4. My two favorite artists are Public Enemy and Pink Floyd.

5. My favorite song of all time is "Maggot Brain" by Funkadelic.

6. I'm spiritual, but I find religion restrictive.

7. I have three ferrets: Spike, Asia, and Pink. A Bearded Dragon named Revan. An Emperor Scorpion named Vader. And of course my Salt tank.

8. I love Star Wars even the prequels.

9. I have finally found something that helps me relax. Fish watching.

10. I like having deep discussions, but haven't found a woman in the last year that can keep me interested mentally.
29g FOWLR- 2 Percula Clowns
2 Emerald Mithrax Crab, 5 Nassarius Snails, 3 Astrea Snails, 1 mexican turbo snails, 1 Chocolate Chip Star, 1 Peppermint Shrimp, and 27lbs of LR 2lbs tonga branch and 25lbs fiji rock
