Think for a solution, then act

I was just reminded of a true story told to me years ago. I do not recall the source, but I have never forgotten the story. I tell it to every student diver I teach as a reminder of how we need to ‘act’ when underwater. Feel free to use it as an example with your students. Here’s the story: An astronaut was asked the following question: “If you were locked outside your capsule with 10 seconds of air remaining, What Would You Do?” The astronauts answer: “Think for a solution in the first 9 seconds, then act“ When underwater and faced with a challenge, where it be water up the nose, a regulator knocked out from your mouth, inhaling nothing but water, taking your next breath to find out there is NO air, etc… “Think for … Read entire article »

Cozumel September 2011

In September 2011, a team of divers visited Cozumel Mexico. Our goal was many fold. We all arrived Saturday the 3rd except for one diver who arrives Sept. 1st and departed on the 5th, while the remaining departed Sept 10, 2011. Our first full day was dedidcated to vsiting and hopefully getting into the water wih Whale Sharks. Our Second day (9/5) was spent hunting and harvesting Lionfish and the evening consuming them, ceveche style, kabobed and fried. The ceveche style was my favorite.

I recovered a few days later… Wednesday Afternoon I spend diving with the Marine Park Services hunting and filming lionfish for a documentary, separate from … Read entire article »
