Apart from the fact that the Convention Center was also rented out by Jehovah's Witnesses on that particular day, the Scuba Show was fun. Nothing against Jehovah's Witnesses or anything, but they had rented out the entire Convention Center's parking structure and made Scuba Show visitors find alternate parking. The bathroom lines were also very long! If you were there, you know what I'm talking about. Next year, Scuba Show planners, please try to pick a day when there aren't thousands of people from different groups competing for parking spaces and toilets!
However, once we were in, Christina and I had a great time running around the booths and checking out all the gear. I was particularly impressed with Mares new women's line. Also, a company is now offering full face masks with integrated communication systems. The regulator is also integrated into the mask, so you don't have to clear the mask the traditional way. How do you feel about communicating under water? I have to say, I enjoy the peace and quiet down there!
I really miss posting and reading your comments, and I look forward to this study mania coming to a close. I'm trying to book a dive vacation for the end of August, so all suggestions are welcome!! Hope everyone is well!
