Took Continental from Houston via Oahu and Guam to Chuuk.  Plane departed
Guam and turned around due to a mechanical problem  Fortunately, there was
a spare part.  Flights to Chuuk are not everyday so a major problem could
mean not getting to Chuuk, but we had no real problem (1 1/2 hour delay in
arrival).  Continental was superb for this trip (outbound).  Odyssey
captain Len and crew met us at the airport and got all of us to the bus and
then to the boat without a hitch.  It was after midnight, so we all went to
sleep after a brief intro and some minor equipment setup.  Setting up gear
wasn't a problem the next morning.  The dive guides, crew, captain, and of
course Kara were all excellent.  The accomodations were the best I've seen
on a live aboard including bed, cabin, dive deck, availability of
equipment, willingness of crew to help, etc.  The wrecks at Truk are
covered with soft corals and lots of "critters" and the dive
guides from the Odyssey were superb at guiding us through the corridors of
the wrecks and helping us to "see the history" of these sunken
ships from Japan circa WW2.  We were fortunate enough to be able to see a
sharkfeed (something I didn't think I'd like, but ended up LOVING) and the
final day of the trip we did a land tour of one of the islands arranged
through the blue lagoon hotel.  All in all a great trip, well worth the
travel, and hopefully one that will be enjoyed by many divers before the
wrecks are no longer safe for diving.  
The dive conditions were flat and easy...ideal for this type of diving. 
The night dives were interesting and colorful.  All in all, a great
experience on a superb liveaboard.
