Since I flew out with JetBlue from IAD at 4pm, the Air and Space Museum was a perfect thing to do. It’s $15 to park and free to enter. I had heard that this location was better than the one just off the National Mall, and I certainly agree. The museum is an indoor hanger… Continue reading Touring the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum
Today Whitney and I headed west to do a day trip from Washington DC and kayaked the Shenandoah River. We rented kayaks from the Down River Canoe Company, which were pricey at $39/ea, but it did include the transportation 12 miles up river, which gave us just over 5 hours of kayaking time when you… Continue reading Kayaking the Shenandoah River
Today Jeff and I had planned to hit up a spring near Wakulla, but the landowner is no longer allowing access, so we were able to take things slow and get a late start to our day. This was a sinkhole which neither of us had dove before, but we knew it was gorgeous from… Continue reading Off to a hole in the woods…

We found a place that rents canoe’s (link here), although at $30/day it’s not cheap. Wish my boat didn’t have a leak in… Continue reading Cave Diving on the Wacissa River

We didn’t make the connection that this was Convict Springs, so we went to the office and asked the manager if we could dive here, only realizing what cave… Continue reading Convict Springs

We added arrows every 100ft into the system, and easy task since the line was all knotted. We only got… Continue reading Out on the Suwannee….
Some of you may have noticed that my blog has recently been rather…inactive? Well, finals at the end of the semester were a bit rough, so I had very little time to get out and do things. Today I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a BS degree in Information Technology. I’m not… Continue reading After 4 years of waiting….GRADUATION! 🙂
