Hello to all fellow members,
I have been a member for a few months now but this is me finally getting round to introducing myself.
My name is Tom and I am from Edinburgh in Scotland, I moved to Australia about 32 years ago and that is where I call home.
I am 64 years old but behave a bit like a teenager, I am married and have 2 kids, I will be arriving at Medford in April, I will be naked, of gear that is, so I will have to buy or build a 4inch dredge, also need to buy an inexpensive RV, note everything will have to be inexpensive Scottish remember.
I will arrive in Medford airport and hire a car for 7 days during which time I hope to have acquired transport, I will then travel to Happy Camp to set up Camp and that is where I will put together all my gear.
Thereafter will travel to Oregon for the dredging season I hope to spend about 5 months in Ca /Or.
I am a retired Commercial Diver; the last five years that I was working I had my own business, collecting live corals and marine fish for the Aquarium industry. I miss diving very much so I am very excited at getting back in the water to play.
I have been studying the underwater gravel transfer system with interest and will put my two bobs worth in sometime along the way.
I hope to make some new mates when I arrive and hope someone will adopt me.
I enjoy the forum very much it has been worth its weight in gold to me, boom boom.
All the best from Tom in Aussie.
Oh and remember that nothing sucks seeds like a GUMMY budgie!!!
