Mark, all--

Wish I could--I have a hood, booties, fins, mask, gloves, compass and 
snorkel; but am currently dealing with a need to move out over the next 

Am also looking for possible sofa-surfing opportunities in the Bay area 
while I look for work and get my footing again.

Down the road, I think another snorkeling thing would be a lot of fun.

Best to all,
