Well the water temperature has been hitting the high 50s and they say “if it doesn’t kill you it will only make you stronger”. It looks like many don’t want to take the opportunity to get stronger (myself included – the Swimex is 82 degrees) as we have been averaging only 6-8 swimmers on the weekday mornings and 10-12 on Saturdays. I guess the real story is we have that many people so crazy that they will keep coming out (some of these folks are still swimming without a wetsuit). I have upped my carbon foot print this week with the fire place going every evening, and I hope to get this global warming thing on track so we can all get back in the water. FYI the hot tub is working. Ron occasionally comes out and uses it after he tests the lake water with his toes only. I believe he counts the hot tub as two crossings.
Tom Dyll did a nice video of a lake crossing with a go pro camera tied to a buoy he was pulling. If you want to know what you look like swimming from an unusual point of view check out the video here.
I know that many of you have helped out with the Zombie Cause videos and photos for the book. I just wanted to let folks know that the Zombie Survival store on Sandlake Road is now an official dealer of the Zombie Cause’s books, T-shirts, posters etc… Definitely a store worth checking out, especially if you have out of town friends that imply that Orlando doesn’t have culturally sophisticated shopping available. If you do go to the store tell them that Doc Ruger sent you, it won’t get you a discount, but they won’t try and head shot you when you walk in the door.
