RVL, I'm right there with you. I enjoy the taste of salt water, the choppy water, ebbs, floods, and yes the seals can be interesting but up here in the Bay Area they can get a bit aggressive. But nonetheless, at least for me, open water in particular in the ocean is the best bar none!
Shummai, that's a tall order to do the ultimate to do a 400 IM, I've watched those at the World's and that's no small feat. Good luck with that and keep us posted.
