This is a shot taken from the ladies' changing tent. Yes, there was a large, heated tent for us to use for getting undressed and dressed!
And here is my dear buddy Tass who later today, while shopping, bought a magnet for me that says: Friends don't let friends do stupid things....ALONE! How fitting!!!! She stood there and froze while watching the madness. It wasn't until the drive home she told me she helped several men get their shoes on as their hands were frozen stiff!!! She's amazing like that!!
Today was fun! Everyone there was happy. The resounding farewell I heard was, "See you next year!" Many people only see each other there annually, and make it a point to high-five! There were a few people water skiing and wake-boarding. All ages were represented, and the event has a history of raising about $50,000 during this event. I find that impressive, and what a great way to kick off the new year!

If anyone wants to join me next year, I would love to have a team!! It is truly an adventure, and no, it isn't THAT COLD......YES IT IS!! I went up to my chin, but next year I vow to go all the way......with a few friends for peer pressure!!!!!
THANK YOU AGAIN, Make-A-Wish Idaho!!!
