Day nine: Friday, 22 December. Towels.
You can use the towel that your gym or pool issues, if you go to those sorts of places. But what about when you go to the lake?
Well, one thing you need to think about when you go to the lake is space. If you’ve got your handy rescue buoy with you (from yesterday’s post), you know you have limited space in there. No room for a nice, warm, fluffy bath towel.
Take a note from divers: chamois! These types of towels ring out and dry fast and can be crammed into a very small space, like your buoy. Being dry after your swim is important if you have a loved one who’ll sit in the driver’s seat of your car anytime after you’ve swum. Trust me on this.
