This Am set up a couple day live aboard dive trip to Barrier Reef!! So tomorrow morning, No Internet for a few days..... Just off to swim, take in the reef and diving!! Hope my 20 year Old Padi cert Still works [/QUOTE] When I went on a live aboard out of Airlie Beach into the BGR, the dives were all world class, riding turtles, night dives, sharks at night, whitewater rapids thru the coral rings, drift dives, Whew! some of the best dives I have ever done were there. Both Magnetic & Fraiser Islands were excellent, camping on both was memorable. You are a bit north of them, but if you pass them, check 'em out. Thanks for the inspiration that you are. You are living my dream, making me question the meanings of life. Not many people leave that mark on me, thanks Radioman. Mike Barsky ps: ever passing thru So.CA. please make contact, I'd love to take you out for dinner & drinks. Not to mention a place to stay.
