da' cook swims, or floats, or bobs, or....

check out the latest from our new old guy cookie over at the cook shack. he dips into the old memory bucket and comes up with a ladle full of sub school memories. his pictures and writings about the submarine escape trainer tower, or as he calls it "the bouyant ascent ... the submarine escape training tower" should warm the heart of any of the sub school grads that did a free assent with a steinke hood over his head. hohoho, blow and go.

when i went into the nuke pipeline in 1972, they had already taken nukes out of the sub school loop. i guess they figured that the two years of training (or more in the case of the electronics techs destined to be reactor operators) were enough to prepare us for the boats. when i was in hawaii in 77 going to "C" school, i got the chance to play in the tower there. they were using the facility mainly as a decompression chamber for diving accidents, but the tower itself was still functional... if you knew the right people. unfortunately, i didn't, but hanging around the chamber and talking to the "real divers" was enlightening, as i was training to be a scuba diver at the time.

enough about me. it always seems to revolve back around to me.

go check out cookie's entry. it's good stuff.
