So my tide date is getting closer and my nerves are getting bigger. I leave this Friday to fly to Amsterdam to spend a few days sight seeing and with family before making the trek over to Dover. I will arrive in Dover 2 days before my tide window opens to be able to swim in the harbor and get used to another time zone change. Below is the link for my Spot tracker, so if you are so inclined can watch me swim the Chanel from the comfort of your computer screen. Chandra will be updating Facebook with pictures and im sure other stuff. Nerves are starting to set in, I know I am ready and can complete the swim, but everyone knows Mother Nature plays a big part of my success. English Channel.....bring it, Josh I need help with my GREASE!

on Labor day I was asked to swim a relay across the length of Bear Lake. I got to swim with Gords, Josh and myself. with our little 3 man relay there was also a girls team that was really fast. Will also swam the Solo. So needless to say Bear Lake was busy with a bunch of swimmers. I started the Relay and then it moved to Gords then Josh. It was nice hanging out with those two for the better part of the day. We wanted to get done in under 9 hours but as everyone knows Mother Nature can really be a bear.....at Bear Lake. the last 2 hours of swimming was thru white caps and bigger swells. we were able to power thru and finished a little over 10 hours. It was a great way to spend the holiday with two friends doing what they love.
