A few weeks ago we met a man who was “blamed” for getting a bunch of divers, diving… Well as I went through the list of people that Gary was “responsible” for I noticed that we hadn’t interviewed Megan Shafer yet. Now as I’ve stated time and time again to the point I sound like a broken record, I like doing these interviews in person, but Megan and I made an exception and I interviewed her over the phone. She lives an hour and a half away from me and I haven’t seen her since she got certified. Sometimes you just have to make exceptions and this was totally worth it because now I have her phone number and I can pester her. Oh wait… I didn’t just say type that…. haha. It’s Wednesday and this has already been a long week but just remember, we’re on the downward slide to the weekend!! So without further ado, meet Megan Shafer.
How did you get started diving?
I was told I was going to by Jason.
How long have you been diving?
For a really long time, like 4 to 5 weeks.
How many dives do you make in a typical year?
I have no idea. I think so far I’ve made 9 or 10, does that counts.
What other hobbies do you have?
Girl Scouts, church, harassing my kids… lol.
Where is your dream dive?
I want to dive the ocean, I don’t really even care where.
What is your most comical dive experience?
You know what, so far all of them are funny because I keep doing silly stuff. What’s not funny is when I get the giggles and my mask pops off.
What is your occupation?
I’m a mom.
Words of wisdom/tips or tricks for fellow divers?
It’s not as scary as it seems.
