In Dar’s comment she mentioned she and Sis. Mel , at one time, would lay in the icy waters of Lake Superior for therapeutic reasons. We all are familiar with the groups known as Polar Bears who jump in icy waters. But have you had any crazy things you have done?
For a few years in my teens, I would go to the river and dive into the water on my birthday, Jan. 17th. Now that water in NC was cold, not as cold as the Northern lakes, but to a southern boy it was cold and would jolt you alive. I never stayed in. Only once (on my 16th) did I dive twice.
Most folks have done some crazy things. I hear talk about the young girl sailing around the world (at a halt right now). The claims are even to child abuse. Now I won’t argue with anyone on that fact, but in this world, there are families who put their children to work, that would starve otherwise. Child abuse? I think not. But folks, can you imagine the cost of supporting a child as he/she sails around the world?
I personally have no problem with the idea, I just wish it was me and my mama had the $90,000 to replace the mast that broke, or buy me a new boat. JEALOUSY YOU SAY! Yeah maybe. It was a dream of mine to sail around the world, but the more I hear of what it costs, I could not get to Barbados from Florida. Ha! So I guess I can cancel that dream.
I HATE TO CANCEL a dream. But some things are just that, a DREAM!
To replace our around the world cruise, we will start our “Final Tour” around the USA in July. We are going to take the Northern Route going West and return the Southern route, hopefully when it is cooler. We did this once and wound up in Yuma in August, WRONG! It was 112 in the shade. I want to call this trip something, a title or tag. I don't know about 'Final Tour', that sounds to ominous, got any suggestions? Any places or people we should visit or see on the tour?
Anyway do you dive into icy waters? Have you?
Thanks for reading this drivel,
