Hi,
It's Tom (and Lisa).

The good news - we are two gringos in Mexico- with 6000 miles of warm water coastline to dive.

The bad news - we're in Mexico City - about as land locked as you can be in this country.

More good news - to get to the 6000 miles of warm water coastline, we get to drive thru some of the most incredible scenery, complete with fascinating history!

More bad news - we have to drive on the Mexican roads!

I'm firmly entrenched in the P&S crowd for now but will probably be looking for a smallish strobe to compliment it in the near future.
Despite my best efforts I’ve gotten an interesting shot or two but look forward to quite the education here!
A great big thanks to the folks that run this site – I’ve learned an enormous amount just by lurking!
Cheers,

I’m trying to HTML a flickr photo- it doesn’t appear right in the preview????See how much I have to learn!

Hi Tom & Lisa

Welcome, There is a pinned thread on posting images from Flickr on the Photo Gallery forum if you want to check it out. I struggled with it too. Nice images of your cenote dives. :D

Buena suerte,

Steve

Hola Amigos,
Your trip sounds like a very cool one indeed. I'm envious indeed. "warm water coastlinee" I take it your on the Yucatan side. Did you just take off from the US and decide to drive the coast?

Bien Viaje

Thanks for the welcome Steve. The scary thing is - I read that thread and still managed to mess it up! :D

Gary,
We drove from Virginia to Florida to Mexico City. We now live in Mexico City but since arriving we drove from Mexico City to Zihuatanejo to Salina Cruz to Oaxaca to Mexico City and then Mexico City to Xcalak to Akumal and return. We want to dive Vera Cruz and Baja (might fly to that one). Love to get out to Revillgigedos!

Cheers
