Paul - We went on a 6 mile hike to Lake Winnemucca in Alpine. It has an elevation of 9,100 feet. The hike started at Carson Pass at 7,000 feet elevation. This is an approximate 2,100 foot elevation change. When we arrived at Lake Winnemucca I decided to strip down into my undies and jumped in. The water had ice in it and snow was around its entire perimeter. We estimate the temperature at 35 degrees or lower.
The entire trip Jen's sister, Julie dared me to jump in and that we all had to do it to prepare for the tough mudder. The end result is I jumped in 3 times. Jen, Julie (jen's sister), Jenna and Alex (Julie's son) all jumped in. It became peer pressure but we were all glad we did it. IT WAS COLD!

The Bennetts rode to Oasis Bagels this morning! It was pleasant on the way there, but HOT on the way home. Jayne and Hunter felt overheated, and we wished for an icy cold lake to jump in! It was a 5.5 mi bike ride w/kids on tag-alongs attached to our bikes. We went through the south lake to north lake and across the street to Oasis. I didn't time the trip but James and I pedaled as fast as possible and the route is mostly uphill on the way home.
