    SummerRogue I just saw your posts on B!TC# it out. That sounds like a horrible experience. I wish you had a better experience, especially in Iowa.

    Hi I am just starting to get into the idea mermaiding. Is there anyone in the cedar rapids area who would like to get together for a swim?

    Summer rogue, were you working at the des moines y camp? I was a camp counselor there what like 7 or 8 years ago, and 4 years ago was the arts and crafts head. O my gosh, so many amazing memories, I loved every second of it.

    Yes I was working at camp Sunnyside Des Moines and I can honestly say that my experience has contributed largely to anxiety issues, I had panic attacks almost daily after camp and they didn't stop until I started medication. I had the worst experience of my life at that camp and it's put me completely off the idea of working abroad.

    I thought I'd check in. I moved to Marion (Cedar Rapids area/East Iowa) last summer. I used to live in Omaha and I owned my own entertainment company and we had six gals in our pod. We would practice at least twice a month. Now I haven't been out hardly at all. I have met zero mers in cedar rapids. I have extra tails and i'd let someone my size borrow and still no luck finding a swimming buddy. I'm also having a hard time finding places to swim. all of the local pools have no "mermaid tail" rules on the books. I haven't found a private pool or lake. Hopefully this summer I'll find something because I'm really missing it!! I only get to swim when I travel back to Omaha.
