    Can you explain what you mean by syphon? If you were to say that to me, I'd immediately think it's the same as a vacuum press. So, if it's different, I'm intrigued. :)
    Sounds good. I don't think the Rockets require that, either. Regarding the PID, that's exactly what I thought, as well. I think I might use it for the first week or two, and then never think about it. I've seen some PIDs now include an automatic shot timer, which I could see being useful.

    It's okay. You can always print more money.

    Well, of course you had to have them... if you don't have one, and you SCUBA dive, it's called drowning.

    Yeah, but I legit have to have all of them.
    Two regs for back mount single tanks.
    Two regs for back mount doubles.
    Two regs for side mount doubles.
    The rest are for stage and deco bottles, which only need one each.

    Turkish coffee is made in a copper pot called an ibrik. It’s coffee grounds, water, cardamom, and sugar. It's delicious, but really strong. Basically you bring the water and sugar to boil, then add the cardamom and coffee, bring it back to boil until it's about to boil over, let it go down, then bring it back to boil. Drink it in an espresso cup.

    The ibrik looks like this.

    I think coffee smells amazballs.
    Pity about the taste.
    We did order some fancy coffee at a resort on Cozumel, though. Mostly because they set fire to it and pour it from like 3 feet away and do tricks. Massive cool. But nobody drank it.

    No, the world has been pretty shut down. You might have heard there's a nasty virus going around...

    I think we will be going to Roatan soon, though. And I want to get back to Tulum before too much longer, to spend some time in the caves.

    Closest we have been is Belize. Tulum and the surrounding ruins are a great trip in and out of the water. It has been 5-6 years since we have been there.

    We love Ambergris Caye in Belize, but it's a long, long day of travel from Colorado. You fly from DIA to DFW, then to Belize City. Then you get on a tiny little puddle jumper, like 10 passengers, to go to the Cayes. Then you get on a water taxi...
    The last time we were there, the puddle jumper got stuck in a pothole while trying to turn around. The locals had to come push it out... The diving is awesome, but I've not found a good dive shop yet. I don't carry all my C-cards with me. That would be silly. I generally only carry my Cave and Hypoxic Trimix cards. After all, those are pretty much the end of tech diving training, so if you've got those, you're good for anything else (well, not rebreathers, that's the only cert I don't have). I handed the shop guy my hypoxic trimix card at checkin and he didn't know what it was. He had to go online to to find my billion year old PADI open water cert before he'd let me dive. The guide tried to sell me a PADI Rescue Diver class a few days later. Best lobster we ever had was in a dirt-floored restaurant in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye, though.

    The ruins are cool, but unless you're an archaeologist, I don't think they're a repeat visit kind of thing. We generally stay in Cancun or Cozumel so Kim and Sue can get in some good reef dives while I'm in the caves; neither of them does any tech diving.

    Officially have two more shifts until I'm done with hospital work!!

    I'm hoping that I can find a remote job in cybersecurity once I finish the bootcamp. Both of us are really interested in history and we'd be able to work while travelling if I don't need to go to a specific office every day.

    Obviously that's assuming covid calms down enough to let us travel.

    Realize I didn't answer the second question. Generally I drink it black, but it's kind of like whiskey. Though I enjoy it straight, it's nice to have a mixed drink now and then. So I like a nice cappuccino, Turkish coffee, or some other drink every once in awhile.

    Have you ever considered just grinding up NoDoze and snorting it?

    Not even once. I also bake, but have never considered eating a bowl of sugar.

    Test results came back today, negative!

    Whew... that's a relief. Only took 3 days. But I'll still isolate until I'm better from whatever this thing is.123
