These Wrangellites, while being of dubious mind but able bodies, remained submerged neck deep in the icy waters of Zimovia Straits for the
11th Annual swim on 1-1-11 at 1:11pm for 1 minute 1 second.



And the tide was out halfway to Japan making for a really long trip back to warm clothes & the fires

You can't tell ME that doesn't hurt! But it sure was fun to watch. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Tenacity? Fortitude? Nah. Just nuts.

Nomad, you need to come visit. Wrangell's awesome.

Cripes, my heart jumped just looking at the pictures! I think I would polish of the days one minute and one second of fun by spending the remaining hours in a nice hot steamy sauna.
