    Moving to FL, Tampa or Orlando?

    That was another thing I learned... DO NOT RENT OR BUY in Alachua county..... the short commute from ANY direction will pay for itself in property taxes and utility bills.

    Moving to FL, Tampa or Orlando?

    I'm another one who travels a lot and chose to live in High Springs. I fly out of gville sometimes, but also opt for JAX, MCO and even TPA sometimes. It just depends on where I am going and timing....

    Regulators

    Thanks for all of the good info. That's a prime example of why I don't service my own regs. Lots on tidbits and info you need to know from years of servicing them.

    I bought all of the mk10/g250s...

    Burst disc's

    I'm in agreement with Tom that an accurate gauge is important. I have a calibrated (and re-calibratable) gauge that I plug in line when boosting O2, and as a check on the other two gauges in the...

    Regulators

    I acquired my dozen or so Mk 10 G250s the same way for stage/bailout bottle use, but service them myself. The Mk 10 G250 is a great reg for use on stage bottles or deco bottles. It's a great...

    I have a couple Mk 15s in excellent condition that I'd sell with either D400 or X650 second stages. The D400s are in excellent condition and the X650s are near mint.
