My Status: Hello all.... Well it´s been a tough year and Thankfully it´s over, my wife lost a daughter, two uncles and her best friends father.
Carlito - Edmonton Alberta Canada
About Me: We are so looking forward to getting certified and sharing adventures together as a family and meeting new friends!We are members of the Wing divers scuba club in Edmonton Alberta and really enjoy this group. We are looking to make some friends in the Edmonton Alberta area who are interested in doing some camping and diving on the weekends in the summertime. My wife was healthy all her life until last year, she discovered that she has acute pancreaitis and a hyatis hernia and is is almost constant pain of some sort but I love her dearly and will stick by her no matter what !
Favorite Dive Gear
We plan on snorkeling a couple of the lakes near to Edmonton this summer with me misses and our son so I would have to say my 8/7 Bare one piece semi dry wetsuit would be my favorite piece of dive gear, a good 7 mm suit with hood boots keeps the cold out and makes for a more enjoyable experiance.

Well soo much for getting certified this year...plant closures and lay offs, all part of the modern reality !
Work work work and not enough ´´disposable´´ income to justify this at the moment ...depressing but a fact of life...signed up with SFI last week and making a go out of doing the working at home thing to generate some ´´extra´´ income and Thank you all who voted for our web page !!!!
Well, now... it´s getting on towards summer´s end. How goes the certification?
We were at Twin lakes in Alberta for the annual lake clean up and treasure hunt sponsored by the Alberta underwater council and the local dive shops in Edmonton, we were just snorkeling and checking out the shallows in our 7mm suits as this lake is very cold and deep. My girl enjoyed herself so much that she definatly wants for us as a family to get certified...YES ! If you are in Alberta on a dive trip you MUST check out this lake, it is definatly a dry suit dive as it gets VERY cold with lots of cool stuff to see on the bottom placed there over the years by the club.
Sorry we haven´t been on here for a while but my step daughter was killed in a head on crach with a semi truck Saturday last. She is with the angels now and at peace. We thank everyone who has expressed their best wishes and prayers in our time of grief and we are doing our best to move on and enjoy our lives as best we can as Nicole would have wanted for us to be happy and remember the good times we all shared together as a family.
Hi, I am inviting you to see the first city in America, Santa Marta, at the foot of the tallest mountain in the tropic and the fortress build against the pirate´s attacks in Cartagena and dive along these two sites in the Colombian Caribbean, to do some spearfishing, photo, underwater video, wreck diving, etc., let me know the dates of your stay here to set you up and show you around, thanks
So, here we are in the very beginning of Spring time! Although I´m sure Alb. is still on the chilly side. LOL When´s class start?
Well right now things are really buisy at work, doing 12 hour shifts till at least the end of April then I will have some free time to get started. Chilly is definatly the word to use, we up here dive in wetsuits in the summertime as well as the lakes are warm enough at the surface and in shallower waters but cold in the deeper spots,hypothermia is always a concern and it´s no fun when your freezing cold
I recently purchased 2 Aqualung Infinity masks for my wife and I and they are the best masks I have ever used, I highly recommend them to anyone who is serious about comfort and having a great field of view while diving.
On the dock early in the morning at West Twin lake in Alberta.(this lake is 110´ deep)
My dive buddy and love of my life.
My girl saying "can we go again, huh huh please ?"
The club dive trailer and dock.
A very cool dive platform.
Our club has squatters rights to this lake...so cool !!

Our campsite at Twin lakes was awesome with the sound of the loons late at night, so peaceful...
