Re: Cabo Verde lodging info needed

Hey Joel:

I'll be your driver if you and Jeff pay for my ticket.

Jeff will verify that I can definitely drive on sidewalks.

ed257:

Yep, married a woman who is 17 years younger than me. I have to run fast to keep up!

Re: Radio Helmets...anyone using them, besides instructors?

Tom: If you look at the ad, there is also a transmitter that we use. The transmitter does not like salt water, or maybe salt water doesn't like the transmitter. Either way, if you dunk the transmitter, it dies (unfortunately, I've done this - ONCE). That's why we put them in water resisitant bags - ...
