    Diving with a legend and an encounter with a DOXA

    This week I'm in Orlando for a work conference. I flew in a day early and lugged my dive gear down to Jupiter, two and a half hours away, on the coast. Hooked up with a local op for a couple of dives. As I was unloading my car, someone noticed my yellow Aqualung t-shirt and was wearing the same! Turns out today was a gathering of a vintage dive gear club and all were wearing similar shirts and the guy who sells them was there.

    One of the divers in this group was sporting a 750T Sharkhunter and we did a lot of watch talk. I am and was wearing my no-date Rolex Sub. Turns out he's a bit of a watch nut and I encouraged him to sign on here and say hellow. Nice guy. "Emilio Largo", you out there?

    During roll call on the boat, I heard a familiar name - Jarrod Jablonski. The legendary cave diver and proponent of the GUE/DIR style of diving (Ty can fill you in) was onboard and diving with his girlfriend/wife. Pretty cool. Seemed like a very nice guy too. He was a contributer to Dr. Pete's latest effort:

    Dives were great - no less than eight reef sharks, some turtles, a big ray, giant groupers, etc. Surface conditions were rough and I am not too proud to say I was green for most of the boat ride and surface interval. All worth it though.

    Sorry, no pics this time....

    That's pretty cool.
    Did you say hello to Jarrod Jablonski?
    Hope the other guy joins in

    Really cool Jason!!! Met Jarrod at Pete's book launch. He did seem like a nice guy that was very modest regarding his accomplishments. Sounds like some awesome diving!!
    Best Regards,
    Jason

    Nice...I was out in Orlando for a week back in the summer of 2006, and did the same exact thing down in Jupiter and down the rest of the coast. Definitely worth it!

    Although, no one on the boat knew a darned thing about Doxa...they still liked the orange dial though.

    Cheers,

    Avi
