Bonne Terre Mine named Missouri's bucket list destination by USA Today second year running

As some of you know, my second job is a dive master and assistant instructor at Bonne Terre Mine. It is a unique diving destination of the United States.

It was just named for the second year in a row a bucket list destination for USA Today. For the article, click here.

Such a great move - now for some revenge ....

There are hundreds of Youtube videos of the Mine. Here's one:
