Tubing season opens; no vendor change

Me, tubingMemorial Day weekend, around here, marks the opening of the tubing season at Ichetucknee Springs State Park. I was pleased to read in the paper Friday that a plan to change the tube rental arrangement from the status quo (“the way it’s always been done,” to quote many Episcopalians) to a single-vendor “inside the park” system. To me, going to pick out your tube at the rental place and figuring out how you’re going to get it to the park is an essential part of the whole tubing experience.

In sort of related trivia, did you know that Googling the phrase “Ichetucknee tubing” is one of the more common ways that readers find this site? It turns out that a photo album from a previous adventure there is on the first page of search results.
