RealFeel: 102°// Needless to say, I was drenched just 30 minutes into my exploration of this amazing battleship and submarine. It was completely worth it though! Highly recommend you check it out if you're ever in the area.

The last picture was taken with a guy I met, Tom. He spent six years as a submariner above the Arctic Circle. I didn't realize it until I left, but Tom and I sat in the "dinning room" of that sub and I listened to his incredible stories for two hours. This is the history I love learning and living for, the history you can't find in textbooks.
Tom spends his time now volunteering and repairing the USS Drum and "painting pretty ladies". He said he'll send me my picture in a month or so 😂
