Nice set of criteria Terry. I am well into the 5/6 group and experience many of the 7/8 group symptoms or charactristics. As I only swim in pools the open water experience awaits me. At 78 years I fully expect to be able to lay claim to solid entrenchment into 7/8 by constantly reading this forum and applying the insights that you and everyone bring forward. Even get glimpses of 9/10.
There is great joy in the water which enriches the dry land time. Actually they enrich each other.
May we swim with ease at the speeds we choose.
