Update......

Jury duty is coming right along. I was chosen on Tuesday then rejected along with three other middle aged white guys. I am due to report back in a 1 PM today.

I am planning another coast dive this time off the coast of NC to dive a wreck known as The Hyde.

Coastal diving in NC is a hit or miss and mostly miss because of the frequent high seas, hence the “Graveyard of the Atlantic” reputation. It is common to have off shore waves of 5 to 7 feet for days on end. This doesn’t bode well for travel offshore and especially are poor conditions for getting on and off a boat.

So my planned dive of August 5th is very optimistic.

This dive is supposed to be loaded with sand tiger sharks and sandbar sharks along with nurse sharks. None are necessarily harmful I am told but the idea scares the hell out of me and thrills me all at once.

Nurse sharks? Do they make you better if one of the others bites you?

Your diving sounds fun but scares me a little. I sure don't want any thing to happen to my little brother!!

I was diving with a guy off the Georgia coast and he kept screaming in his regulator. Not sure he knew we heard him.
