Junior Diver Interview – Calder La Due

I hope you’re enjoying this 31 in 31 gig we have going on this month here on the blog. Our goal is to hit a lot of different topics quickly. It is partially there to break up the monotonous of January.

Today I have a fun topic for you. So, Diver Dan makes a lot of headlines around this blog… but here’s the thing… today I have a treat for you. We’re going to meet Diver Dan’s grandson Calder. Oh wait, that’s right, you guys know Calder. He’s been around this group since before he was born, or something like that. The thing is, he’s finally SCUBA certified.

A year ago October he turned 10 and last New Year’s Day he finished up his SCUBA certification. Yes, you read that right… he did the New Year’s Day dive. The dive that some of us (hint hint: me) are too chicken to do. He took the plunge and got SCUBA certified on New Year’s Day. So, now it is time to make him Blog official and have a Junior Diver Interview.
