    Maybe he was looking for a "package" and didn't want anyone sniffing into his business if you know what I mean.

    Crazy river with a crazy undertoe, I know of two drownings out there in the past two weeks. I don't have numbers but read about at least five others over the summer.

    they smoke some funny stuff up near your way. I'm surprised the river patrol didn't want to at least question him especially if there's commercial traffic.

    Dumb people go out in traffic without a care on who they effect,
    Berg, I give you credit for giving a damn, where the swimmer obvious did not.

    Been there, unsupervised swimmers crossing the lake all in black Olympic swim suits.

    If I was to swim across the lake, I woud wear an orange , yellow or red cap to make sure nobody put me on the bottom of the lake

    Yeah, it's been an interesting year to say the least... Kinda hoping for a more boring (and less expensive) season next year.

    I've heard/read about way too many drownings out there - people who are accomplished swimmers, even a sheriff deputy on vacation a few years ago - and those were all pretty much mid day events. I bet a river patrol would have rolled on it if they had been in the water. Think that is more of a day shift gig around here. They were at the dock when we dropped in at 5:30 or so, but no where to be seen after that.

    Could have been a drug smuggler. A friend of mine with the DEA said barges dragging barrels of drugs into ports, releasing them, then divers swim out and get them. Attach floatations devices to them, float them up, swim them to shore, load them up. All of this is done at night.

    Wow, that is really a crazy story. No one in their right mind would be swimming like that in the dark, especially a "professional" swimmer. There was a swimmer killed here at a local lake a few years ago by a swimmer. The swimmer was out for her regular exercise swim close to the shore and a boat ran her over. It is way to dangerous to swim anywhere there are boats around.

    Damn Greg. I never heard about this one. And that was right after we hung out. Crazy man. We'll need to cut you off from the brews sooner next time.
