On a diving holiday to Australia in January 1998, two Americans, Tom and Eileen Lonergan, joined a group in Port Douglas, near Cairns, for a day’s diving on the Great Barrier Reef, 40 miles off shore. In the evening when the boat returned, unnoticed by either the crew or any of their fellow divers, the Lonergans were not on board.
The moral of the story is that no matter how careful you are, mistakes happen. After my flood the first time, I felt so bad, I couldn’t imagine it would ever happen again. I thought, “I am going to watch this thing every second and set an extra timer.” It didn’t matter, there was still too much room for trailer accident prevention, especially considering the importance of what I was doing.

Anyway, since my tap water sucks, I purchased a reverse osmosis water filter. Even if you have decent tap water, it’s nice to use one of these as your water will read nearly zero PPMs. By starting this way, you know exactly what’s in your water. Also, you’ll have more room for the good stuff you want to feed your plants.
Two days passed when the manager of the hotel where they were staying noticed their absence and raised the alarm. By the time the search was finally launched, it was almost certain that the Lonergans were dead.
1) Anchor Point — Make sure you come to a full draw at the exact location every time. Choosing an “anchor point” is the first step. An anchor point is the location where your shooting hand is “anchored” each time you come to full draw. This is usually the corner of the mouth for finger-shooters or along the jaw line for release-shooters. You may adjust your anchor point to compliment your particular shooting style.
Even with normal precautions, it’s still possible that you will someday incur damage and the need for an iPad repair. Keep in mind that replacement is expensive and in most cases your iPad will be repairable. Get the estimate, and then make the decision on repair cost versus replacement.
