    Story for all my Engineer Friends .... And Others

    An Engineer dies and goes to Hell. Dissatisfied with the level of comfort, he starts designing and building improvements. After a while, Hell has air conditioning, flush toilets and escalators. The engineer is a pretty popular guy.

    One day God calls and asks Satan, "So, how's it going down there?"

    Satan says, "Hey things are going great. We've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and there's no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next."

    God is horrified. "What? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake - he should never have gone down there! Send him up here!"

    Satan says, "No way. I like having an engineer on the staff. I'm keeping him."

    God says, "Send him back up here or I'll sue."

    "Yeah, right," Satan laughs, "and where are you going to get a lawyer?"

    All that's missing... is you!

    The season is moving into Fall where we expect the year's calmest conditions which means the most dive sites available in Yap.

    Warm water, culture and adventure await!
