Certain adventures are better experienced from afar, say, by watching them on TV. This is especially true when they involve tight spaces, caves and anything underwater.
I have a love of history and archaeology. At Ohio State University, I majored in journalism and minored in geology and archaeology. When I share that fun fact, inevitably I get a puzzled stare. The subjects seem polar opposite. The one — journalism — is in-your-face, nitty gritty real world. You are attending city council meetings and delving into details on variances, development, laws and community needs. The other … well, it deals with long-ago living, with tiny, dirt-covered clues revealing how people lived and died hundreds or even thousands of years ago.
