Knucklehead Numbskull Swim Sunday

Next Swim: Sunday 6/14 3PM

Last Swim: Saturday 6/13 noon
Water Temp: 56
Waves:  small
Water Clarity: poor
Crew: Gumdrop, Kahuna, Diablo, Patriarch
Wetsuit/ Skin: 3/1

It was so foggy that we couldn't see the shipwreck marker buoy a quarter mile off shore.  That and the murky water made a swim to the wreck pointless, so we headed north instead.  We had to swim around a pier and I headed back closer to shore while the others swam further out.  Soon I lost them in the fog, prompting today's quote of the day from Kahuna, "the Patriarch got lost but he bought the beer afterwards so we still like him".   Even though we didn't make the wreck it was a great swim and the barbecue and beer afterwards was fantastic.

Tomorrow morning is the Locust street beer run and there is a chance of thunderstorms thus creating the rare possibility of a knucklehead  numbskull  swim. Knucklehead swim: swimming during a thunderstorm. Numbskull swim: swimming drunk.

Let me be clear: I completely disapprove of this. But there are those among us for whom crazy is good, crazier is better.  Which I suppose is to be expected in a group who think swimming in Lake Michigan is fun.
