Why did I join? The more sensible question, in my estimation, is why wouldn't I? I'm here to drink wine, meet others (while drinking wine- always a fun time), and learn a ton. Did I mention drinking wine?

Wine, food, friends. You'll have a great time!
Oh no worries i'll be there. im trying to take R# or Tech 1 now. they are fun.
Gracias por la bienvenidos Ben :) ... Unfortunately I do not have a drysuit. Is it necessary for the Monterey water? Or would a 14mm (7mm farmer jane) suffice? ... As to your cert q's, I was certified OW & Adv. OW through PADI in Thailand, then cave-diver in Yucatan through IANTD, and sidemount & nitrox through TDI in Florida caves last month... Now i'm eager to try Cali waters (and brave the cold) after I return to CA in december. All advice greatly appreciated... Hasta luego!
Thanks for the greeting Ben. I booked the Silver Prince 2 tank dive on July 3rd. I do not have a dive buddy coming with me and was wondering if someone from the Meetup group was looking for a dive buddy that day. Also, I will be down in Monterey on Friday July 2nd, and wondered if anyone wanted to dive that day as well.
Thanks for the 'Hello' Ben and the encouragement to get back into the cold water. Though the technology (drysuit) is out there, I'm unsure if I want to spend the money when I'm not sure I'll love it. Does this group ever plan warm water trips? Or boat dives up here or down south? Hope to get to a dive soon.
Hi Ben, thanks for the greeting. So far I love Cali and don't miss vt too much yet. I'm excited about diving, although so far I've only dove at Monterey. I'd love to try diving off the coast up north, although I'm not sure what kind of experience is needed for it (I saw some dive sites in jenner when I went camping up there).
I'm excited to start diving in California! Do you know what the appropriate thickness for wetsuits for this season is ? (I currently have 4/3mm, but I imagine thats not enough).
I have to say I am a wimp. I have a friend that goes abalone diving every weekend when he can and wants me to join. I like warm waters so if anyone is planning a trip (I guess south or abroad) I would be very interested or meet up to discuss best diving sites in the world and how to get there, I would be interested.
