    Utah Lake and River Mers

    I'm pretty sure I'm the only one.... if I'm wrong, please correct me.
    What's a good way to get more merpeople in my area?

    I've thought about a get-together, but I really am the only mer in my state, it seems.

    Oh. You should introduce it to other people in your area! Might be fun. Or see if there are any groups in the area for other kinds of mythical creatures costuming?

    Well I'm hoping to inspire some Mer-curiosity at the upcoming RenFaire this month and at the Pirate Festival in September, but at the latter, my current tail will be too big. >.<
    Still working on it...

    Best of luck then! Remember to have a card or something to give to interested mer-parties

    Right! I'd like to have waterproof cards that I can put in a bag on my mermaid belt and give out to the parents I meet, but so far they're kind of spendy.

    You also might want to reach out to cosplay groups to try to make some more mermaids.

    That's a good Idea, Malinghi... Cosplay seems rather popular here...I wonder how I could get in contact with some of them....

    I see from your profile that you're 13. Do you happen to have a shiny gold tail? and a dad that helped you make it?

    Ah... I met a man in Joanns who was buying bright gold fabric to make a tail for his daughter, which is what got me started on this journey as an adult. That's why I asked.
    I live in Clearfield.
    Do you have any pictures of your tail? Did you make it or buy it?

    I'm new and just got my first mono fin because I need to learn how to be a strong swimmer before I get a tail. XP But I'm in Northern UT.

    Welcome Thalassa!

    Thanks, Sea Pearl.

    My monofin should get here in a few days; I'm trying to line up a friend who can swim to help me with technique. XP

    Woot for more Mers!!!

    I always have my 9 year olde niece practice without a tail too to help on the technique.

    As far as finding more people. I ALWAYS bring up my Mermaiding. If I see a woman with a Mermaid tattoo I dont hesitate to bring it up. At work, out partying, meeting new people, I ALWAYS bring it up You'd be surprised at how many people you meet who loves Mermaids and would LOVE to be a Mermaid

    My husband and I went up there for our anniversary this year, because it's near where we honeymooned last year, but as far as swimming there all the time goes, it's kind of a ways away from me. I'm in Davis County.

    I live in the Orem/Provo area. Up till now I've only ever swum in pools (I've never swum in a river or lake, weird huh?). I've never been to Jordanelle, but it looks like it's about an hourish away. So it'd be a good enough drive that I couldn't be popping up there at a moment's notice, but I could probably make it there once a monthish if needed.

    I think we should have a get-together!
    Thalassa, you and I are meeting up at the Pirate Festival this year, already. Merana, what about you?
