Yep. Here it is. My blog. Not even as exciting as watching paint dry.

  1. Submarine camping

    I just had a sleep over on the USS Silversides, SS-236 in Muskegon, MI. They do campouts for groups of 15 or more. Sub holds 76 people. I got the captain's quarters (one bunk in the room).

    The Silversides saw action in WW2 and was called the Lucky Lady because only 1 man died in all its patrols. Out of all WW2 subs it had the third most tonnage sunk. Out of all SURVIVING WW2 subs it now has the most tonnage sunk at around 91,000 tons.

    The sleepover was with chaperones ...
