Playful 1-3ft waves greeted the Klode Kru as they arrived at the beach today.  19 total swimmers walked the plank today with several of them clad in Brent Emery's latest and greatest wetsuits that are now available for purchase at his stores.  Everyone clad in these sharp looking wetsuits (...which included Sir James, The Big Show, Panini and Monika...) agreed that they not only felt great to swim in but were a great way to enjoy the cooler lake water.

Upon arriving back to shore we were greeted by Not Dave's Wife and Dave.  Both sadly have been absent from our swims this summer but Not Dave's Wife has promised to swim with us Tuesday evening.  FYI....Rumor has it that Dave may not be present for Tuesday's swim.  :)

Side note....no hand signals were used during the course of this afternoon's swim with Kru members opting to speak loudly their swimming intentions to proceed further or to turn around.  No emergency responders were encountered before, during or following our swim.

Fyi, Michelle McCormick, a reporter from CBS58 was looking for someone to comment on Diana Nyad's epic achievement. I called her and gave her Greg's number and Ted's email address. She also asked if there was a female swimmer who might comment, someone hopefully in their 50's or 60's. I'm not going to be guessing female Kru members' ages, but if you fit the bill, give her a call:

Hi,
We were trying to get reaction from swimmers on Diana Nyad swimming from Cuba to Florida.

Anyone available to talk with CBS 58?
Thanks for your consideration.

Ted was on CBS 58 news. Story does not seem to be online yet. Ted looked good, but as usual, the reporter got focused on pollution, and sounded like she got some facts wrong. Still, nice work Ted.

The Kru's brush with the law also got a mention today in Tom Held's "Active Pursuit" blog, available at this link: http://theactivepursuit.com/lake-michigan-swimmers-attract-surprising-attention/.

OK, tonight's story is now posted on the TV 58 website: http://www.cbs58.com/news/local-news/Local-swim-club-gaining-attention-222285051.html. We "swim about 20 minutes out from shore where they're sure about the water quality"?!?! Jeezsh.
