By Lori Soft breezes, low 80′s, turquoise waters, great food and fun shopping. All this and a free trolley car that will take you where you want to go. This is what we enjoyed on a recent day trip to Anna Maria Island that’s centrally located on the west coast of Florida. Continue reading
Take a trip down Weeki Wachee Springs in Spring Hill Florida. My family usually goes at least a couple times every summer. We have a great experience each time we rent a canoe (and kayak) for this trip. The spring water feeding the small river is so clean and clear, you can see everything that is in the water from fish to manatees. The water is about 73 degrees Fahrenheit (23.5 Celsius) year round, which makes it a perfect place to go for a summer activity. Continue reading
If you are an avid paintballer then you know that some paintball parks like to charge big bucks to refill your co2 canisters. Some parks will charge five dollars per refill on a 20 oz tank and some will charge a certain amount for you to get “all day air”. Most people don’t realize that co2 isn’t that expensive and you can get it much cheaper. The reason it is so expensive at paintball parks is because you are paying for the convenience of having it near by, you just have to pay. Continue reading
The Tippmann name brand is renowned for it’s good quality paintball guns. Over the years I have used Tippmann guns with no problems and I have never had to repair a gun or any part of the gun. I have been using the Tippmann a5 for a while and I have come to love it’s availability, usability, and its customizability. Now I don’t mean to sound like a preacher, but this is a gun that someone should be talking about. Continue reading
Don’t get a cheap one! I bought a $400 inflatable water trampoline from Sports Authority to use at the beach while I was vacationing at a beach house. The box was pretty heavy, but that was expected as it was a large trampoline. We got the trampoline home and decided to inflate it to check it out. It was 10 ft in diameter. I couldn’t wait to get it on the water. I had to deflate the trampoline and put it away until the exciting day of departure came. After deflating it tried to put it back in the box, but that wasn’t happening. It is the same story with inflatable mattresses once you take them out of the box they don’t go back in. That is a fact of life, but Continue reading
When purchasing a mountain bike there are a few things to keep in mind. Before you go out to buy a new bike first consider the size of your wallet, how much are you willing to spend? What kind of trails will you be riding? Will you be taking on treacherous trails or going a relaxing Continue reading
Over the summer I discovered a fun healthy activity that I could do with my friends. Mountain biking. One of my friends had heard about a place we could go to that was free and it was only about twenty minutes from my house. The place in mind was called “Balm Boyette Scrub Reserve.” So one day we decided to load up our bikes and go for a ride.
Racquetball lovers unite! I recently discovered a local place to relieve my urge to play racquetball. Its satisfying to see a gym that has an avid understanding of such urges and provides plenty of relief for those who suffer from them. The gym in mind is LA Fitness and is particularly convenient for me because it is only fifteen minutes from my house. LA Fitness provides five racquetball courts, plentiful league nights and occasionally invites special guests for the league members.
