Swim with Craik!

If you are interested in swimming, kayaking or paddling your own vessel, perhaps this invite from Craik will entice you?…

I am planning on driving up to Lake Santeetlah Saturday morning for a swim and would love to have some company.
 
I am tentatively planning on leaving early (7:00?), swimming & hanging around for a little while and then heading back to town.  I did this a couple of Saturdays ago and was back in town by 2:30 but did not stay there for very long.  I would expect us to be back by 3:30 to 4:30 but you could be back earlier if you leave after the swim.
 
Sorry but no burgers being grilled this time so bring a sandwich if you want something to eat.
 
I am planning on swimming 3-miles but there are options for 1, 2 or 3-miles if you don’t want to go that far (and options to go further…Larry)
 
For those who did not make the swim at the lake a few weeks ago, it takes a little over 1-1/2 hours to get there.
 

E-mail me at craikavl@gmail.com if you are interested and then I will coordinate with whoever is interested.
