The Siljan Diary

With this fourth year, the nature of my swims is no longer a coincidence--a pattern is evident. And 2013 is a "fresh" year. I've found out a Swedish lake -- Lake Siljan -- that I intend to swim across this summer. It's a challenge and it's a creative act, to investigate and then plan and execute a marathon swim in a foreign country.

Here's the unfolding story.

Here's the vision:

    Thanks for posting, Dave. It's interesting to be able to follow an idea for a new marathon swim from its inception to its execution. Good luck with the adventure.

    Dave Van Mouwerik's Lake Siljan swim (which I believe is unprecedented) begins in a few hours.

    Woohoo! Awesome to follow the makings and doings of this swim, Dave. Congrats and thanks for blogging it for us to enjoy with you.

    I'm not very popular around here; but I've heard that I'm huge in Edinburgh!
