HI it’s Ernie, I’m a funologist trying to squeeze as much out of life as I can. I am thankful that my wife April puts up with my shenanigans!
The summer of 2022 brings high adventure at Boy Scout camp, I’m captain on a dive boat for the scouts.
I live in a dorm for the summer at Florida High Adventure Sea Base with 3 roommates in Islamorada, Florida Keys. Sea Base trains scouts in SCUBA certification. I run the BSA Burglar, which is used for the student’s first open water dive in the ocean, after practicing in the pool. My Blog Page lists notes, images and links to photo albums about Sea Base as well as other adventures in my life.
Summer 2021 brought a job in the Florida Keys for me. Daughter Jessica lives in Key Largo and I would love to visit the area with my wife April someday soon. Earlier this summer I was doing a bit of “recon” around the town of Islamorada and came across an opportunity to run a dive boat with the Boy Scouts of America. I started out on Sea Scout, a 47′ Newton dive boat. Pictured at left is Adventure – a sister-ship of Sea Scout. I am now on the Burglar, a single engine Newton dive boat.
