I can only imagine how cold the maumee was. Damn.
A couple years ago about this time I needed to pull two stands off public land that was across Deer Creek.. Which is about 30 yards wide and normally no deeper than my lacrosse boots. But this day it was WAY up.. After driving an hour there i wasn't driving an hour home and coming back later... I stripped to my boxers and put everything in a garbage bag, and swam the 30 yards as the water was up to my chest and trying to stay standing was taking too long. Got to the other side got redressed and ran to the stands to warm up... When i got back i did the same thing except i had to make 2 trips across to get the stands and sticks.
I was FROZEN.. But after the initial shock and getting your mind right it's ok.
