had to get rescued again by the same deputy as two years ago, and he made me promise to get a full wetsuit if I'm ever going to try again. at least I made it farther across than that year, and now I've seen the slough exit. besides, the hypothermia is only part of my problem. the real issue is that I have no current assist, and I'm just not generating enough propulsion to fight it, especially in the second channel.

finished maybe about 1:15, they miscalled my number as 111, or was that my time? anyway, they said I snuck across the finish line, which was a lie. they just weren't paying attention.
