Hangover Cure

Next Swims: Sat 6/19 & Sun 6/20, 1:00PM, Klode
Conditions permitting we will attempt to do some longer swims.

Last Swim: Fri 6/18, 5:45AM Klode
Water Temp: 62
Waves: One Foot Chop, with a very strong current going south to north
Water: Finally cleared up from the storm earlier this week, bottom visible
Crew: Cap'n, Diablo, Lane, Patriarch

Swim Coach Dave threw one hell of a party last night. His house is on the Shorewood Criterium course, and so it was the perfect place to enjoy the race and overenjoy the excellent Fixed Gear Beer from LakeFront Brewery. Which made this morning's plunge into the lake particularly harsh. But the swim out to rockpile, and the very challenging battle against the current on the way back, cured my hangover. Harsh medicine, but definitely effective. Now I need a nap.

Hi - So... can I just show up and swim with you? I'm looking to avoid the bacteria at Bradford, yet not be totally alone in the water. I'm sure I'm NOT up to the length of swims you do, (I'm in the .5 - 1mi range) but I'd like to know some people who swim Lk MI.
