Yup, I think I will. I got into the vintage gear because all the people with whom I agreed on scubaboard were vintage divers, so I got interested, and the equipment is just beautiful. Plus, it fits with my reductionist mentality to diving. Less crap to put on = more fun. And, it's vintage machinery. Same reason I like old motorcyles and Volkswagens.Bryan wrote:Creed I know you also post on Scuba Board and have for a long time. You have been a member here since November and have posted 39 times. I belive you are also a member of Dan's board. JMO but I'd say you are within the criteria for a card....You might want to wait till SDIII so you can have the photo on your card show you with your two hoser on.
Oh, I understand. My post was mostly tongue in cheek.I'm trying to prevent a bunch of BS artists that think we are all impressed by their avatar or the crap in their signature line....It is way too easy to be an internet super hero....
Afford the new stuff??? Someone point me towards the cache of cheap "old stuff"! Well, I can see the tanks, at least. I haven't paid over $50 for a tank yet, since I always go for the old steel 72s. And that includes hydro/vip. But I've bought several good single hoses for the price of my aquamaster. And I haven't got it rebuilt yet. I guess that is the price of good taste.One of my favorites is from an E-mail I got when I offered the 1st batch for free.
" Hey can I get on the list for one of those cards? I used to dive that old stuff but now I can afford new I don't have to"
I think my XI is just about as old as my AM.Nemrod wrote:Hey wait a minute there Chucko, my RAM is 1972 and my Calypso J is 1966!!!!
Oooh.....that would make a great picture. Get a pic of the two of us in full gear, driving in.Chuck what if we have all single hose "vintage" divers wrassle a manatee while swigging Ol'Hawk or better yet pull an alligators tail and cut it off and present the tail to the Grand Master Gomez for inspection. If'n they do that will you count them in?
Creed, if your planning on riding with me you darn well better have that DA going or I am going to make you drive the whole way sucking on that stupid Conshelf.
That's mighty kind of you! I assure you, the DA will never be a bathtub accessory. It just needs someone with more time than I have.No worries there feller Kansaw dude, I got you covered , if that DA of yours becomes a bathtub accesory you can use my DA. You know, the one I had offered for sale for only 350 dollars with guage and banjo? Yep, after you use it you will beg me to sell it to you for 600 dollars. It is that good!
