    One of the camp guys was on the ground and provided counter-weight for us as we climbed the wall. It was a blast!

    I am so jealous of the lake action you have easy access to!

    Thanks Karl, it was a fun event for my first Nationals. I was pleased with my swims and enjoyed meeting many from the blogs.

    I am not yet ordained, but a temporary officiant which is allowable under Vermont law (kinda like a fill in justice of the peace). I was able to work with a pastor friend to plan a special ceremony

    Hey, I just saw your posts from Nationals. Nice swims! (I was on vacation and didn't read the blogs for a while.) The 400 IM and 200 back on the same day, yikes that had to hurt. I like how you sneaked a fast 50 in between the two.

    Ah, that makes good sense - and now we know that you are ordained. I suppose that I should have guessed that, but all I could think of was that you were using a form of the expression, "I married my daughter off...". Anyway, I got a good laugh.

    Welcome back to SoVT, Mike - and congratulations on your first Nationals and some truly significant swims! Sounds like you and Preston had a good time out there. Hope to catch you in the pool before the rec center does it's 2-week shut-down.
