Hello all. My name is Nick. I'm from the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. I am not, at this point, an experienced diver, but I have had a lifelong interest in scuba diving, diving tech, the historical progression of the tech, as well as navigating the practical realities of safely diving with vintage equipment. I'm also looking forward to talking to all of you who share these interests, and hopefully learning some useful stuff in the process.
