I received my PADI certification in1984. All of my dives were logged in freshwater lakes in Wisconsin until 2006. I started my saltwater diving adventures with a trip to Bonaire in March 2006, when I was turning 50. That trip got me hooked on ocean diving. I've been to Roatan twice, Curacao, Hawaii and San Salvador (Bahamas). Most exciting trip was San Salvador because we got to swim with a whale shark. It was truly amazing. I'm a 27 year veteran of the US Air Force and WI Air National Guard.
