It seems like MN is coming to a slow crawl with activity these days, but I'd still love a way to stay in touch with locals.
Are there any active facebook groups for Texas? May be Twitter?

I think I applied to that a few weeks ago, but no luck. Is it still going or is Facebook eating requests again?

DFW has gotten really quiet lately but I still wanna meet up and swim with others! We have a pool we have swam at a few times and I have a scuba shop I've made friends with we can swim at and another pool in mind!

The California Facebook page has also gone rather quiet. I've also been swimming at a local beach each Sunday, and posting my plans on the FB page. So far, no replies, no interest, and no one else has shown up.

That's awesome! I'm in the Bedford area now, so getting around the DFW is so much easier.
I would be up for meetup sometime. I'm still sewing my tail, but I have a new mono fin coming in soon. :D

Whhaat?! I thought California would be the most active out of the States. Since Hannah Mermaid is a resident and all. I do hope to visit family there sometime next year.

So that would make it a 4 hour trip then. My town is right between OKC and Tulsa. I WILL FIND A WAY!!!

Honestly it always slows down in summer- it goes in cycles, happens every year. Even my mermaid Tumblr feed is really inactive right now. Most mers are out enjoying the summer, doing gigs, getting their swim fixes, being out in the sun, creating content for later (when they're not too busy to post). Most of the activity right now is on Facebook Fan pages and Instagram.
Most mers get the itch to come online onto forums and blogs and groups after summer is over, when they're looking for another outlet for their mer fix :P
Another part of the cycle I've noticed is there's always some big drama in the spring. Never fails. :P

Ah, I figured I just came in at a strange time. But, a lull in seasons is good to know. Glad to know that I'm still in the right place for staying in touch.

Got into the Texas group on Facebook and looks like much of the same is happening there.

Hi guys, I'm new - just sent a request on the FB group too. :) I saw there was a meetup at Little Elm beach - I'm out there a lot of days and wish I had known about it! :) I live on Lake Lewisville about 5 minutes from the park, and was hoping maybe somefolk might be interested in a regular thing there :)

This is such a cute forum- I don't actually even have a monofin and tail yet, but found this while researching because I was thinking it would be a fun thing to make and do some photos with. :)

Welcome Scraps! It might be a while before anyone in the Facebook group has a chance to accept new requests. Just a heads up. Its totally cool if you want to come to a meet up, tail or no tail. I haven't been to Little Elm Beach yet, but that sounds like an awesome idea for a regular meet. With the holidays still coming up and work schedules, I think the best thing to do is may be start a few dry meet ups for a bit. Though, with Texas weather, who knows when swim season actually ends, haha!

Cool, thanks for letting me know :)

LE beach water is FANTASTIC and I estimate we've got at least another 3 weeks of swimming left, maybe 4- it depends a little bit on your cold tolerance and how low the night temps get, LOL, but it feels great in the afternoon right now- water's nice and brisk but not uncomfortably cold, and it's cooling off enough after dark for the firepits to be fun. Lighthouse Grill (the on-beach restaurant) is, IIRC, open through the end of the month, too, and there's an AMAZING brunch place across the street from the park, Bella's.

I could always use more brunches.
