By the way how many megs are there on the planet being used meg users?



About 400 units is the number being thrown about at present.

I could be accused of replacing one garage built unit with another...

Still, ISC's garage is a bit flasher than mine.

probably coming up to two years, did the training in a wetsuit in the middle of winter - fun 3 hrs in the water. Finally got my inspiration with vision electronics in august 05 after only a 6 month wait from ordering it, Pete got the joy of christening it in the lake pupuke and it has also been to truk without me too :(

had heaps of fun with bronze encounters up at the knight, no bubbles = lots of close up encounters with all sorts of big critter.

Enough of the weed sprayer jokes already Mr Lowe.

A little more action, a little less talk on the RB front would be nice. That is, get yourself and the unit up here and we can do some diving...

I cert'd and purchased my Evo a year ago and enjoy immensely. Returning to the Carib for the Normoxic CCR cert. soon. I would love to get to NZ to do some wreck diving and UW Photo. I'll have to link up with Pete. Retiring in Sept 09, so more diving to come!!

Hi Tom,


ANY time mate!!! You are always welcome. There is some amazing wreck diving in NZ, fantastic life. Deep water if you want it. Its all good!!! Just as long as you dont put us to shame with your pictures!! - THEN we kill you!

Good luck with the Mix CCR program. I am flying Mike Fowler over from Canadia over easter to do my Mod 3 Instructor so it should be fun!

Keep in touch. - We are heading back to truk again this year in July.............. This is a great place to work on your photography!!! PLENTY of rust there. we are allready getting bookings for 2010, It is a MUST DO destination. So with the retirement in full swing you will be twiddling your thumbs!
