Hi Kathy. This isn't a GoPro, but GP can be water acclimated. Just like my little camera, the GP goes into a waterproof case that has built in buttons to operate the camera. Mine is called Easy Shot Clip HD. It's as small as a pocket spy camera, is rechargeable, has a 2g mem card(but will hold up to a 6G) and lasts about 1.5 hours on a full charge. While I'd love to have a GP at some point because of all the accessories, it doesn't actually fit on a regular mask. You have to have a GP adaptable mask to fit the GP onto. There's also the ticket price. Mine was 49.00 and GP black with a case would cost upward of 500.00. I'm new at this and I decided to try my hand at videoing our dives w/o breaking the bank to do it. This way, we get both Michael and my view points for under 100.00. And , literally, what you are seeing in that video is EXACTLY how it looks down under. It seems to want to adjust for available light on its own and it seems to do just fine with our very basic photography knowledge. I also like that it goes in 10 min increments. It's easier to delete the crappy parts without having to fuss with the whole video. I don't know how long it'll last, but it came with the waterproof case which clips comfortably and securely onto a mask or visor or wherever, because once clipped on, you just click it rotationally to the position you want. Plus it has a lanyard for wearing on our BCD vest or wrist and the patch cord for downloading onto your computer afterwards. and at the price, which included free shipping.... I'd buy one again in a NY minute.
Hello ladies, I have been off scuba diving again for the past few days and haven't been on, but have been thinking of you. I tried to get some really good video of this trip. Unfortunately, this was the first time with the cameras. I have a lot of bubbles in some sections and a lot of nothing but sky in others, lol. I did get a couple of really good 10 min sections though and have posted one on my facebook. I'm going to try to get the link here too, so bear with me.
hopefully this will give you the video. If not, I apologize. It's 10 min of some of my best footage. Not saying much, but at least I'm sharing the best of the worst, lol (wink wink)
You won't see me, I'm wearing the cam, but those gloved hands are mine .. you will most probably see Michael, my significant other. If this works, I'll probably post another from Michael's cam to show me in all my scuba glory.
Morning! I've been up awhile but I was pinning, lol (and waiting for Gage to get up) Found a new apple pie recipe and had 4 med apples getting on the soft side so I made the pie which I was just about to put into the oven when he started his morning cry poor kid goes from 0-60 decibels in no time when he thinks he's been left alone.
Breakfast 2 x coffee w/ stevia eggs and greens
lunch chicken, bacon, ranch pita pizza w/ gr peppers and red onion
dinner stir fried chicken n veggies over saffron rice
PM snack sm slice apple pie w/ 1" sq pc cheddar cheese 1 c unsw. vanilla almond milk
Great news about how your wedding went, Tia, and welcome back. You'll get to that 200 lb mark before you know it, now. You've gotten through your big event for this year and now you can concentrate on getting down to business again. Looking forward to your vegan dish input again.
So glad about your being a Mrs. now. Congratulations to you and your new hubby.
Dinner , roast chicken , small potato, 2 sm. Sunbeam dinner rolls, corn and cucumber slices 2 big glasses of water and 10 oz of almond milk
Pins are out. Michael said the first one burned, but the second one was trying to pull out on it's own once the pressure of the other was gone, so it was a lot easier. We were hoping to go diving this weekend to celebrate the removal, but the Dr. says that his hand can get wet but cannot soak in water. So maybe we can go the weekend after this coming. I sure hope so. Getting bored and anxious to go again.
I gave up on ever finding my other fin from my open water test. Although I purchased that new pair before this last trip, I decided to go ahead and order another pair like my first ones. They were longer and heavier, and they definitely made getting across big areas of water way easier than this pair I have now does. This pair will be the ones I pack if I ever fly anywhere though. They don't even weigh 1/3 of what the big pr does.
Still deeply considering going to Florida for my Birthday in Feb. It would really be a kick to snorkel with the manatees to ring in my 50th bday. Heck, the boys even sound like they may go with us, lol. Monica won't do it because of her claustrophobia, but she could go and sit in the cabin with the captain of the boat, or opt to go shopping while we are out.
Hello all. We , as a household , slept in today. The boys had to work overnight to help do full store count, so we all sort of went along for the ride and did a flip flop on our daily routine yesterday to accommodate it... esp. since we were getting updates as to how things were progressing throughout the night. I asked for those, though, since Alex is the main store count minion and he's been worried sick about whether their store was going to make it. There's been a lot of in store theft and things just going out the door without proper paperwork. If they can't reconcile last nights tallies to headquarters' (which they will know the diff. on Tues) then it could mean that a bunch of upper mngmt heads will roll. Not a bad thing, if Alex and Cody might be able to move up... but.... lol.
Today, Michael gets his pins out of his pinkie. I want to go in with him, and hope to get to. I am always fascinated by any medical procedure and this is something I've never seen.
No breakfast, no lunch , as yet. We'll see about that after his appt.
I'm really not even hungry at this point, so maybe we will just wait till dinner is ready around 5ish.
Yes, Gage is and has been trying to cut his teeth for the past month or so. Unfortunately, his little gums are hard as rocks but nothing is poking through yet. Yesterday he drooled like a little faucet all day, lol. And he gnaws on everything. Knuckles, his poor little fingers, the arms of the chairs, his toys and the occasional frozen yogurt icee pop that I keep in the fridge for emergencies.
Michelle, we've been getting rain every day for the last week. I'm sure it was a precursor to the hurricane coming through, too, and it's been muggy as heck with a whole lot of heavy pressure systems.
I'm glad to hear that Aus is good too. Maybe she's canning with all those squash coming in. I know I would be, or freezing ziplocks every day.
Up early....gah, Judy! I don't know how (re. why) you do it I have Gage this AM.
breakfast 1 diet coke lime....i know, i know ... but it was easy to grab one handed while lugging a crying munchkin around my wet noodle is around here somewhere and I'll give myself 10 lashes when I find it
He's conked out now so I'll be making, and hopefully eating, steel cut oats w/ stevia, craisins, coconut flakes and unsalted sunflower seeds coffee x2 w/ cocoa n stevia
lunch hh pita chicken , bacon, gr pepper, ranch pizza
Nancy, that first pic , what can I say. You look just so happy and healthy and well, GOOD! My God you have come such a long way since your surgery, and by the looks of it, it's been a road well traveled. 50 huh? how does it feel? I'm asking because that's what I'll be come February and I keep hearing that sound of brakes screeching from the Wiley Coyote cartoons, every time I think about that number, lol. WHOA BOY! I just never really thought about reaching the edge of that cliff. But it seems to be all I can think about , this year.
I love that your friends and family all brought , well, friends and family to help you celebrate your birthday. And look at the guy taking your picture in the background. The love and admiration on his face while looking at you through his lens is priceless. You are a well loved person. Big or small you have built yourself a wonderful life full of love and friendship.
I hope that your nerve damage is slow moving. Perhaps you can outrun this beast and continue to get the most out of life before it overtakes you.
