Ticonderoga, NY local @Bridget Simpson completed the 32-mile length of Lake George in August, becoming only the 11th person to do so since it was pioneered by Diane Struble in 1958.

Documentation of her 28 hour, 6 minute effort is now published here:

    Yay @Bridget and team! Such a beautiful swim - big congratulations! And I am very impressed you were able to climb up onto the rock - the rockst around were so slippery!

    WOW!!! Thanks everyone, for the lovely comments! I had a blast, and was totally stunned by the level of community support in my area. This forum has been so helpful on many fronts-- I'm glad I found you!!! :-D

    Yes, @Jaimie Diane's Rock was slick, then getting across the small channel to my friend Joan's point was more slipping and sliding! Jim put solar garden lights on the rock for me, but I took so long getting there, I think they were no longer lit. (WHY didn't Diane use the boat launch as her starting point??!) ;-)
