John is SUPER. He was one of the early crew of cave divers in the UK. When he came to Wakulla 2 over a decade ago, he was one of the most active support divers. When he wasn't diving, he was sweeping up Mission Control and making me cups of tea. He's my hero!

Yes - John is a great guy - really friendly. He was staying at our caving club hut while in the area for the Cave Diving Group AGM (in the UK) several years ago and was happy to help two of us install a new gas cooker in the kitchen.
