Little hard to tell when Christmas ended. There were probably many who thought is was over the night of the 25th. Not only is there a song about the 12 days of Christmas, but there are 12 days of Christmas!
I wasn't going to let what happened last year at Bradford Beach happen again. During the Jan. 1, 2012 plunge I couldn't locate my clothes after coming out of freezing Lake Michigan. I started panicking and felt a little hypothermic as I wasted precious minutes while soaking wet in zero windchill.
This Jan. 1st will be my fifth Polar Plunge into Lake Michigan. The predicted single digit temps have me a little concerned, but only a little. Preparation is everything, so I've put together a little list of lessons learned to make a first-timer's plunge safer and more enjoyable.
