hi everyone. i currently live in blacksburg while i attend virginia tech. i've always loved mermaids for as long as i can remember. whenever i actually get to swim i prefer dolphin kicking over regular swimming. currently i'm working on trying to make a tail from neoprene which hopefully will go well. already have my monofin and love swimming with it even though it does tire me out after 30-45 minutes of swimming in it. really hoping to spend more time swimming in it so i can swim for hours with my monofin. its great to meet all of you. if you have any advice for a new mermaid i would welcome it gladly

Nice to meet you!

I think there was a thread recently about a lake near where you are that's great for swimming and diving- Does anyone remember what it was called?

Hahaha my reactions to this "Where have you been for the past year??" I say this because I was in Blacksburg while my now husband finished up school =p We live in Richmond now but go back to Blacksburg often,actually the first weekend of August. There should be more hokie mermaids. =]

do you by chance know kenna?? lol she's one of the people that works at Gallows Foundry of Fear. even went last year and it was a lot of fun :) haven't been to dismal falls.....where are those located?? and i do love the cascades. probably one of my favorite hikes. i'd definitely be interested on doing a hike. i love hiking, just don't know that many trails in the area. btw how long are you in town for?

I do! I also worked in it. I was either the girl on the bed, in the abortion room, or baby doll hall way haha we've been working hard this uear with Tim (owner) and its gonna be sick! The dismal falls are right around the corner from the cascades and since we have a wrabgler we love to do off roading but cascades wont let you take vehicles up to the falls..dumb haha
We will be in town until Sunday evening sadly
