I would never attempt this in any other body of water.
You don't need to tread, just hold still and you can keep your

With only about 15 minutes before arriving back, she was informed that Cathi had hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill and would be ready to eat as soon as we got home. That got me kicking my feet and we hurried and loaded up the kayak and made our way home.
What an awesome day. The water was like glass for most of the swim and I had greased up enough to not have any trouble spots. Lucy did a great job paddling too and I never had to worry about her. She obviously wasn't worried about me the last 1/4 of the swim as she was ahead of me by about 100 yards. Call me strange. I'm the type of guy who likes to feel sore after a workout. I'm also the type to like it when my tongue goes numb and pickled. Meant I had an awesome long swim in the lake.
Total distance 5.90 miles in 2:59
