Last night was a big night for the crew. With the plank counter at 999 who would be our 1000th swimmer to walk the plank? The Patriarch made a valiant attempt to be number 1000 but eye witness reports indicate that despite the Patriarch being the first to begin walking the plank it appeared that he become distracted by Barbi as Kahuna dashed pass him and into the history books as our first ever 1000th swimmer to walk the plank.

To celebrate we hoisted a round of Pitsch immediately following our great lake adventure and then continued our festivities on over to Lisa's for pizza and several more rounds of grog.

With Diablo, Gumdrop and I logging skin swims last night and with Diablo and Bubba logging a skin swim this morning the official skin swim count is now at 93. Could 100 skin swims really be in reach? Before you pass judgement I should point out that these are no cheapie skin swims either. With an air temp of just 47 this morning Bubba and Diablo logged a skin swim up to Cedar Grove and back with Bubba extending the journey a little bit south of Klode's south beach for good measure.
