    Stuck in the middle...

    Sort of feel stuck between the vintages and the new 1000 Ts. Perfectly happy though. I thought I would post a few pics. Dug up my old PADI card. Turns out I'm older than I thought!!

    There are certainly worse places to be.

    Love the 600T but the 1000T raises the bar even higher in style and balance. Would I keep both? I'm not sure; send me one of each and I'll let you know in a few months.

    Nice shots of the 600T. Certiifed back in '72 huh? Judging by the date on your card....I was five months old.

    I see the last two letters of "le" as your certifying instructor. I'm guessing Paul was your instructor?

    That's right youngster - Paul Oberle. I was in high school at the time.

    So, where did you guys do your open water....Lake Ouachita or was Bistineau still clear enough back then?

    You know, I can't remember for sure. Seems like it was a small private lake.
