Default Ow Sole Training

We just bought a cabin on a lake and I'd like to do some OW swimming but it's kind of busy here at times. Are there buoys I could tow?

Also, remind me again how to get JUST THE FORUM on the screen....? I like it full screen so I can see better.

Well, I did a search for "total immersion forums" and that brought up a page with just the forum... so I saved it! :-)

Congrats on your new cabin.

If you go to a scuba shop they will have a buoy with a flag on top. Here on island free divers use them when they swim from shore to go fishing. That may work for you. Wearing a bright cap will also help others see you.

A lot of the time lakes have swimmers only or low speed areas. I suggest you stay in those to begin with. Also swim parallell to shore. See if there is an active swimming community so you won't have to go out alone.

Always wondered why it doesn't open up in full screen.

Thanks! I'll check with the SCUBA shop.
