Annual NRB Tubing Trip
Note: Although this page is hopelessly out of date and we haven't run a trip in years, I've left this page up to inspire those that may wish to go it on their own. Come talk to me and I'll get you dirctions. I also have 14 tubes to loan...

Now a tradition, the Annual NRB Tubing Trip is held every year on the second Saturday in July. Anyone is welcome to attend - you need not be part of the Nuclear Group. Actual tubing time is about 4 hours, but adding drive time to and from the site and vehicle staging, it can eat up most of the day. We usually stop for lunch about halfway through the trip.
Be prepared for some serious water fights. Every year we find new ways to squirt each other with water. We've had everything from super-soakers to pool-noodle-dragons. Whatever works.
I hope that you will plan on joining us next time. It will add new meaning to the phrase "up a lazy river." Details for the trip are distributed via e-mail and by flyer several weeks in advance of the trip. If you would like to participate next time, let me know and I will add your name to the list of those to be notified.
Participants of the 2nd annual tubing trip at the lunch stop. The crowd grows every year. While everyone knows that the inner tube was invented for transportation, many of us understand that its proper use has nothing to do with the highway!
Navigating an R22 on one of Florida's fine rivers is a perfect way to lose that "writing" stress that I often hear about. While physics discussions are discouraged, they sometimes happen. And I know that people have had more than one "ah-ha" experience while contemplating the fractal nature of a live oak. It's just a great place to think.

WARNING: Fun shown smaller than actual size.Funnage based on government funnage estimates. Your funnage may vary. Objects in inner tube appear wetter than they actually are.
