Extreme Diver Interview – Chris Shellenberger

My husband makes fun of me all the time because I swear I can’t remember things yet I prove that statement wrong on a consistent basis. One instance would be today’s diver. In June 2013 I went down to the lake during the Safari Hunt. My husband and I weren’t certified yet but we went down with some friends just to hang out. I remembered that there was one guy who was certified the morning before the hunt so that he could participate. Then when our classes started in July this guys wife went through with us. As I was interviewing these two at the Safari Hunt this year I was able to recall him getting certified before the 2013 hunt and bam… my husband gets to laugh at me again… because obviously I don’t remember anyway. But this isn’t a post about how my husband is right sometimes… So who is this diver you’re probably asking, well please meet Chris Shellenberger.
