Paradise Springs

Who's up for hitting the springs while the gulf's still cold? They open at 8am, I'm thinking we get there early before it gets too crowded. So that would mean getting on the road around 5:30ish (to allow time to stop for coffee!)

    Ok, finally got a hold of the guy at paradise springs. The price is $30, cash only. We have to sign a waiver and watch a short video and we'll be good to go. See y'all in the morning!

    If you folks to the south of me are are all squared away, I'll just head straight up from here, as Clearwater Mall is 25 minutes south. If another vehicle is needed, though, I can come down, or someone can come to my place.

    I would like to get there early and get in before it gets silted up, but it's up to everyone, I'm flexible. At Clearwater mall at 19 & 60 there's a Starbucks! If we meet there I'll buy everyone a coffee :)

      Oh Starbucks can work...what side of 19? East or west?

      February 7, 2013

    • Jeff E.

      East, it's in Clearwater mall facing 60, by the Jared jewelry store :)

    WHAT?? 5:30!!! Are you crazy?? Paradise Springs is only 1 hour away. I say leave at 6:30-7:00 earliest. If y'all want to meet me somewhere around McMullen-Booth & 60 that would be half way for me. I can grab all your stuff, Jeff at the shop on Saturday and I'll grab Beth's tanks too. I need to 3 nitrox 80s used so we can mix for next weekend.

      Sounds good to me Genny, I can park my car at one of those shopping centers....I can't remember what is there...suggestions? Thanks for getting my tanks, I am working in Tampa all day Sat and not sure I could get to shop in time. I'll have money for tanks and gas for sure!!

    I thought I had a ride, but it looks like I need to carpool with someone. Genny or Jim, if either if you would be generous enough I can pitch if gas money :) Thanks!

    If y'all meet me somewhere I can grab the tanks on Sat. (as long as I'm not infected with the Narcosis bug )

    I will be heading out from Crystal Beach (Alt 19 & Alderman) and have room for one in my RAV4, if that works for anyone in the vicinity.

    Uploaded a side profile of the cavern so you know what to expect, wasn't sure if you've been there or not. Yay, Genny's coming too :) The more the merrier!
