Ederle swim has been moved back one week due to high wind conditions. Boy am I glad I wasn't doing it this year. It's hard/expensive to reschedule a cross country trip at the last minute. With the change so late I would already be there and would not be able to hang around for another week.

I hope the change doesn't affect the plans of anyone on this forum

Planes run along the road and mules pull painted clouds by on wheels.
Have a good time! What a stellar gathering of talent!

(More banjos! :applaud: )

Dave, southwest flies into Nashville or Birmingham(2 hour drives) Delta flies into Chattanooga(with a connection either into atlanta, memphis or cincinnati)

PM if you want the phone number of the race director. I think there were a few spots left.

What time on that day should we expect to see the swimmers at Battery Park area? I got conflicting info, one says time limit is 9 hours, that means, if starting around 5am, they should be there around 2pm. But other sources say around 4pm. Which is correct?

Hope you get good weather that day!

Oh, I didn't know the course has also been reversed! Maybe all the changes will make setting a record more likely? Good luck!

Anyone watching the GPS? I can't see the right side with swimmers' names and their numbers, so I don't know who's leading and where our forum member(s) is/are. Swimmer ages range from 39 to 59, unlike other events with younger ages?

I am able to see the numbers on the map and names on the right but I do not see dave's number in the water.

He's the blue arrow. Because his name is first alphabetically it defaults to showing him as the arrow. If you click on someone else's name it shows Barra's number.

I only just saw this...
Graceland was just a bit too far, although I did get (deliberately) lost in the backwaters of Tennessee on the way back (looking for Whiskey distilleries, though I hate whiskey).

I wasted so many hours because the scenery was so beautiful that I took an extra day and went to the GRAND OLD OPRY on the way back!! I didn't even know what it was!!! Apparently it's a gift shop.

And congratulations on Ederle! I'm looking forward to reading the race report.
Take tomorrow off.

Actually, the Grand Old Opry is a concert hall. Decades of country's music biggest stars have preformed there. A country music singer considers it one of the highest honors to be asked to preform at the Opry.

Unfortunately for you, the Opry is still undergoing repairs from the May flooding. The facility is hoping to be open before the end of the year.
