    In regard to the question about goggle fog, I have used two methods that have been effective. The most effective option is to go to a local dive shop and by a tube of anti-fog. The second option is to use a light layer of toothpaste, rub it around and then rinse it out. Shampoo can work as well, but the risk of getting soap in the eyes may not appeal to a lot of people.
