    Hey @Reptile, it's great to see a post from someone who helps pilot trans-Tahoe swims. I have Tahoe on my list of potential swims in 2019 and would love to connect to talk about cost, logistics, etc. Is the best way to get in touch via the Lake Tahoe Marathon Swim Federation website? Trying to do a few comparisons between swim locations to figure out the best spot for next year. I want the challenge, some scenery, and a spot where I can hang out with family and have fun for a few days after the swim! Thanks in advance!

    Hi Katie, You could send me an email to tomlinthicum@hotmail.com or give me a call 925-787-8291. Its best to set up a swim date early. The water is not bad from about mid June to mid September. The water was already 64 degrees as of yesterday! I look forward to talking to you.

    @reptile I will have/do have questions for you as I try to identify a new challenge for next year. I know some others also interested, so I will try to cover their questions also in the one mail.
