Dipping one’s toes in the water in the middle of winter has never been one of my fave go-to’s for a New Year’s Resolution. Dipping one’s entire hind quarters in has never made my list either, but you would be amazed at the number of nutty people out there willing to take the plunge for a good time as well as a good cause! Welcome to the Tybee Polar Plunge y’all!  

 

By the time you are curled up with a Mimosa or a Bloody Mary in a nice, warm towel, you will already have indulged (suffered) or enjoyed (screamed out loud) through the nice bathtub temperatures (Ha) that the Atlantic Ocean via Tybee has to offer on the first day of January! Are you exhilarated? I hope so and a big “Thank You” for taking one for the team and supporting the Tybee Post Theater!

 

2018 marks Tybee’s 19th year of the Tybee Polar Plunge. 19 years is awesome and it all started with Don Ernst on a drunken dare to jump in! Well, that dare was accepted and challenged. The next year more friends joined him (around 12) and each year after that the numbers grew. Originally the Polar Plunge happened on the north end of the island, until the numbers became so large that it was decided to move it to the south end by the Pier. Well, that move did it. Now thousands of people from all over are taking the plunge.

   Alright 2018! I know I am going to flat out regret this but: Whatcha got in store this year??  With each passing year one always reflects back on the year prior (except those under 20 who are living forever) and contemplates the ups and downs, the dids and did nots, the oh hell I did that and the oh hell I did not do that.
