I might be interested in such a trip, provided that:

1.) we *not* dine at a vegetarian restaraunt.  A place with great steaks or burgers, or at least
fantastic seafood, would be fine with me;
2.) I bring my spearfishing equipment along.  I'm a competent freediver and hunter, so I'd like to
combine those activities on such a trip.

I have all my own equipment.

Anyone else?
