The Scuba Blog had it’s first post in September 2013 about our trip to Mermet Springs in September 2013. We’ve come a long way since that first post. We’ve celebrated 2 Halloweens, 2 Thanksgivings, 2 Christmases, 2 New Years, multiple diving trips to Cozumel, Beaver Lake, Mermet Springs and other many other places. There has been good weather, bad weather, sunny weather, cold weather. We’ve had scuba educational posts, try it posts, and even posts about the enforcers. There have been posts introducing all the employees of Extreme Sports Scuba, all the kids who dive with Extreme Sports Scuba and now we’re on to learning about our adult divers. As you can tell a lot of things have happened since September 2013 and that first blog post that went live, but I’d like to mention another mile stone we’ve hit is the Blog has hit its 100th post. Can you believe there are 99 other posts on the blog about lots of events and educational opportunities that have been experienced through Extreme Sports Scuba.
For our 100th post we thought it might be fun to expose you to 100 facts about Scuba Diving. I know 100 facts sounds like a lot, but remember, we’ve hit a mile stone and there are a lot of good facts, trust me, I’ve been doing my research. Now I’m not going to take all the credit here, nope, I’ve had help from Deb Weston, Justin Weston, Doug Lord, Rachele Lord, Scott Dawson, Joshua Gilmore and Aerielle Cupp. I hope you enjoy reading this 100th post as much as I have enjoyed piecing it together. And just think… some day when you’re on a trivia show and that 1 Million Dollar Question comes up and it’s about Scuba Diving, you’ll have the answer and you can thank us :). Enjoy!
