Hello to all, Just to introduce Myself, my name is Mike aka minnime, I am at the Advanced open water level and are just getting back in to the sport after a long spell on dry land, I passed the Advanced course back in "96 but due to work commitments I have only logged 22 dives since then so I am still a little inexperienced even after 8 years but that will soon change as I now have a new job that leaves sundays free, Yeah
so it's time to go bimbling again.
Mike

Cheers Martyn for that, No mate I'm not, JD is my preferred tipple in moderation

Further to expand on what i have already said I am 45 young, from Leeds (please no puns about the team as I don't follow footy anyway) and have spent several years in Retail Management, which is why i have not been able to follow my hobbies in full which includes Motorbikes (I currently own an Honda Hornet 600, (bit of a bugger to get your tanks strapped on though
) and are actively involved in a form of Paintballing called Airsoft (check out the homepage www.teamace.co.uk which I helped develop) I have been persuading my old buddy to start up again, (which did'nt take much persuasion), so hopefully you will be speaking to him soon, We will both be looking for active groups in the surrounding areas to dive with as well as further afield.
Thats it really apart from thanks guys for the warm reception and hope to speak to you all soon.
Mike  

PS I will post a pic of My ugly mug asap

Hi Mike an welcome
guess if you're aka Minnime then we'd make good dive buddies as I'm aka Dr Evil

No doubt Mattbin, another bike fanatic, will be along to say hello soon, actually there's a fair few bikers/ex-bikers on the boards (sigh.. I miss my FZR  
)

Hi Minnime

Nice to have you on board, best way to get back into it is doing what you'r doing, getting in touch with like minded people and go diving. Join some of the trips, start you'r own or just put out a bubby ad, something usualy turns up. (sometimes it's me!)
