  1. Does anyone use GPS to track where they have been?

    You may run into problems using a standard GPS. Unless you are using a professional sub-meter unit, typical accuracy is between 15 and 30 feet.
  2. mask for goatee?

    Most of the guys on my dive crew put Vaseline in their beard. Works to seal the mask.
  3. Brownies or AirLine ? Which is Preferred ?

    I not only treasure hunt but work as a malacologist (freshwater mussel biologist). We dive 40-100 days out of the year and love our airline hookahs. I have had nothing but good experiences with the gear and support staff.
  4. A silver and snake saturday.

    Nice to see folks interacting with wildlife. However, I would highly suggest leaving Venomous snakes alone. They are an important part of our ecosystem but should be respected from a distance. Copperhead bites are no joke and require a hospital visit.

  9. Reward for stolen car.

    I found this tag at a house which ranges from the mid 1800's to the 1920's. It states, "$100 dollar reward for the arrest and conviction of anyone stealing this automobile No 4279". Along the rim it says "Universal Association Automobile Service" It is kind of self explanatory but i thought it...
