    Post Tools on Tour 2 - Diving Bikini Atoll

    It was 2004 when I first read about diving in Bikini and wanted to go diving there ever since

    It took me the best part of 10 years! but I did dived the wrecks of Operation Crossroads
    last June With Pete Mesley's Lust 4 Rust

    Trip report below:

    It is an epic trip and makes for a long report but hope you will see what I mean when I say that
    Bikini is a MUST go and dive!!!

    you missed the bit where Nickb's rebreather was left on the plane in Kwaj and he had to watch the plane takeoff with his unit still on it. Seldom have I seen a grown man so close to tears and such a titty lip...

    PS. I don't think that booking the boat and then pulling out at the last minutes strictly counts as actually being on the trip...

    That is probably the longest trip report I've ever read. I feel like I have been there myself now. Excellent write up.

    Yes and as consequence also misses the bit when Nick's rebreather was returned from Hawaii on the flight the next day .... I have rarely seen a happier man, he was grinning ear to ear for several hours.

    I felt genuinely relieved and happy for him when it turned up but there's nothing like a bit of schadenfreude after a long trip.

    Everyone was relieved that it wasn't their gear that had gone missing. Nick really took one for the team.
