Polar Bear Plunge

Unless you join me, I'll not doing the polar swim on Wednesday.  However, I will be doing it in Feb at the scheduled Meet-up event.

If Will does a polar bear plunge, I will too.

Anyone interested in making this really interesting? How about a nude polar swim? (and by "swim" I mean submerge ourselves in the icy water and then get out within microseconds)

Oh, if Dale does a polar bear plunge, I'll do it.  But I am not doing it nude.  The legal ramifications may be worse than some felonies.

That's why I've been using the term "plunge" and trying to make it stick. Besides, it starts with "P" so it goes well with "polar".  ;D

So... is the FSP recruiting nudists now?   :P

I wouldn't encourage anyone to do this without first getting Will's signoff.  It's his event, and his name in the papers.

Agreed, but if it goes down, I'm in.

Not for the nude part, just the plunge.

Actually, the FSP has some nudists, like Whitney.

Break up the ice in my pool and you can go ice skinny dipping on private property outside the prying eyes of the "law."

I've done this and to those who haven't, I'm going to strongly advise you to have flip-flops or something similar to wear all the way to the water's edge or your feet will give out from the cold sand or snow before you can even brave the water.
