    Great service from Underwater Light Dude

    Bobby is incredible. I'm very pleased with my LD35. While I haven't experienced any issues, I have confidence Bobby will take good care of the light if any problems do arise.

    Benton Tennessee cave/cavern @ Cherokee National Forest

    During our summer trips to western NC we sometimes hike in with a mask so we can check out things like this. Did it this past summer outside of Cashiers and found only a rocky bottom but it was fun...

    Confronting the West's Water Crisis

    Actually, in the US we have a thing called "freedom."

    If we want to get companies to quit pumping the aquifer dry, people should stop paying them $1.29 for a penny's worth of water.

    Confronting the West's Water Crisis

    You bet it is and even seeing this (and knowing what it does) makes me mad as it is all so unnecessary. For our yard I said whatever grows there is what it will be and so far so good. (Nearing our...

    Confronting the West's Water Crisis

    I understand that many Florida communities have Deed Restrictions that REQUIRE a home owner to maintain a lush, watered, Kentucky Blue Grass cover on their land.

    Maybe that would be a good place...

    Confronting the West's Water Crisis

    It's easy. Quit allowing water for swimming pools, lawns, golf courses, etc. A lot of water could be saved if people didn't feel the need to have perfectly green lawns and a million swimming pools...

    Broken line in Luraville Cave

    For that very reason I carry 2 primary lights. One on my wrist and the other in my pocket. Glad you made it out OK. Thanks for the report. I won't be diving in that cave.

    Broken line in Luraville Cave

    LoL! I didn't have knotted line. :-) Plus that little voice inside my head was telling me not to investigate any further. It was a good thing too because right after I turned and got out of the...
