Becoming Elderly

Sunday whipped me. I tailgated with both grills, stove, cooler of oysters and all the trimmings.

But before we dived in the cold quarry in dry suits. Dry suits take a lot of prep time and a lots of additional weight to hold one down.

So put on the underclothes, dry suit, additional weight (20 lbs), tank, gloves, hood, strap it all on and walk to the water and I am already tuckered out.

Then if you notice on the video my yellow mask is fogging and I can’t get it to stop. By the second part of the video I am using a borrowed mask.

Dive for 30 minutes in stressful conditions, then take it all off and cook brats and oysters and by golly I was exhausted.

It was fun, but I am a young elderly person and feel it today.

Days like that make for the best naps though. Hope you got one!
