Where did you find out about the Chicago Scuba Meetup Group?

Web search when I moved to the Chicago area in 2010.

If you are a diver, what is the best dive experience you have ever had?

Wow, do I have to pick? Maybe Palau, but Philippines, and Iceland, and Australia are way up there too.

Why did you join the Chicago Scuba Meetup?

Local charter trips, fun info on different dive locations at the monthly meetings, and an expanded set of dive buddies (and my wife Holly is now a local wreck diver).

If you are a diver, where have you dived?

Palau; Anilao, Philippines; Silfra, Iceland; Stavsnäs, Sweden; Great Barrier Reef, Sydney, and Melbourne, Australia; Roatan; British Virgin Islands; Croatia; Maui, Hawaii; Pacific coast of Costa Rica; Brazil; Monterey Bay, California; Florida keys; Atami, Japan; Jeju Island, South Korea; France and Spain on the Mediterranean side; Long Island, New York; Bonne Terre Mine. And don't forget Lake Michigan and Haigh Quarry!

Are you certified? If so, when were you certified? How many dives have you logged?

Certified in 2004. Started out diving warm water only, but now 380+ dives with Rescue, Nitrox, and Dry Suit certifications.
