    Diving Update And Conditions Report

    I haven’t been diving since May, for various reasons.

    I came back from my secret trip to Iowa with a cold from hell, but tried to get back in the water two weeks ago.

    I geared up with Kenny and some 16 year old chick and made it all the way down to the cove where the pounding surf made us call the dive.

    Nice Bob described his dive at the time as the only dive where he was nervous going out and coming back in.

    Last week I celebrated too much Saturday, when Ronda Rousey beat the crap from that Brazillian bitch, to show up for Sunday services.

    Today, I woke up with a cold and an earache.

    I popped a bunch of Sudafed and drove to Terranea Resort with my gear, hoping for the best.

    I had a choice between calling my dive again, or doing a very painful dive – my right ear was plugged.

    I provided shore support to Chipper, Mike S., and Nice Bob.

    Looks Easy
    All three went off the Point, and made entering in hazardous conditions look relatively easy.

    Chipper was disappointed in me; he said, “You don’t dive anymore, don’t update your blog regularly and show up to debrief in an Albania shirt looking like Zach from The Hangover.”

    That is me.

    I look like Zach from The Hangover?

    Well, I have been keeping in shape by training for the Senior Citizens’ Division of the UFC…

    Cage Fighting

    Cage Fighting.

    I’ll try again next week to get in the water.

    Oh, yeah – the dive report!

    Chipper, Bob and Mike S. reported good conditions of 15 to 25 feet of visibility.

    The End Of My Trip And Other Odds And Ends

    Sorry for the big delay in this post.

    Me and Jay.
    Me with Attack Dog Jay.

    I have been back for several weeks and came back with a lingering cold that I am just now shaking.

    I actually went to a doctor and got some antibiotics that did absolutely nothing; after some time and lots of liquids, I’m starting to feel a lot better.

    I am hoping to get back in the water soon, but will probably just do a check out dive at Redondo Beach to verify I haven’t forgotten how to SCUBA dive.

    One thing I did miss was the beach closures due to unexplained tar balls washing up on the beach.

    So, on to the conclusion of my classified trip…

    May 24-28, 2015*

    We drove the John Wayne Road Tour which consisted of old landmarks – A Train Depot, his Dad’s old pharmacy and various other landmarks related to John Wayne and the surrounding community.

    The next day, we went back to the museum and the John Wayne Birthplace Museum.

    Me at the John Wayne Birth Place Museum.

    You are only allowed to take pictures inside the museum, as long as it is against the fake Monument Valley backdrop.

    Yeah, I tried taking more pictures, but got busted pretty damn quickly.

    And speaking from experience, the real Monument Valley is a lot better than the mural in the museum.

    It was then on to the “Covered Bridges of Madison County.”

    These are just covered bridges made famous by the movie The Bridges of Madison County.

    However, I was told, these are a must see when in Madison County.

    Another bridge.

    Honestly though, if you happen to see one bridge, all the others are built the same way.

    Now on to a train ride…

    Boone Railroad

    We went to the Boone and Scenic Valley Railroad for a quick 12 mile ride.

    Old trains

    The thing that was cool… it was a nice ride and beautiful scenery.

    The thing that sucked… there was no beer on the train.

    The next day, we flew back to Las Vegas where Secret Agent K departed.

    The final leg was a two night stay in Laughlin.

    I played Roulette, craps and penny slots…

    We drove back to the ghetto after the second night in Laughlin.

    Again, sorry for the delay in the conclusion of this story and the skimpy details for the reasons of this trip.

    I would not have missed this trip for anything, and the longer the details remain classified, the better – that simply means things haven’t gotten worse.

    I will be back in the water soon.

    *Post delayed due to security and other reasons.
