Hey, thanks for checkin this out.
My name is Tom Leone, and my wife and I live in Connecticut. This website was created on road trip, when I began to realize how fortunate I've been to experience so much in life that others may never get to try.
You've gotta try this, exists because I have said that phrase to so many people so many times. I love trying new things. More than that, I love being with people who are experiencing something truly awesome for the first time.
I made my first skydive about 4 years ago, cause I just wanted to try it. My brother and I went up to RI and made a tandem from 10,000ft out of a cessna. I landed from that jump and knew I was hooked. From then on I promised myself that I would never hesitate to try anything given the opportunity.
Since that jump I've made over a hundred more. I've gotten in to rock climbing, although I'm not that good at it. I've gone whitewater rafting on what is known to be one of the most extreme trips in the US, the Fall Gauley Marathon. I've been scuba diving in Boca Raton FL, Grand Caymen, Antigua, the US Virgin Islands, Bahamas shark diving with Stuart's Cove, St. Lucia, and all over Massachusetts. Now, I've got the flying bug, and am anxious to begin lessons.
I am no expert in any of these activities, and you'll see through the design of this site that I make it my goal to point my visitors to those who are. What I can offer though, is that first step. The step that so many never take, to find a location, and have that first experience.
I've learned through trying so many new things in such a short relative span of time, that although there are 1000's of places in the US to experience these sports, it can sometimes be difficult to figure out how to get involved.
That's where the idea for this site came from. I want to help all of you find the information you need to get out there, cause I really mean it when I say, You've gotta try this!
