Underwater adventures better left to the tropics

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.
