    Anyone been lately?

    I did Imlay and Mystery within a week period and the Narrows didn't seem to cold at all. I didn't even wear a suit on Mystery and wore my wool socks instead of my neo I brought.

    thoughts on wetsuits for Orderville? Last time I did Orderville it was October in a 4/3 with 3mm neo and I was chilly at the Orderville/Narrows junction....but we stopped for a snack, it was windy....and overcast.

    thanks guys!

    You will get a wide array of answers for this one.

    My opinion is no.

    Englestead doesn't need a suit. Orderville will have swims and it will be a little cold, but not enough to drag a suit through.

    thanks! I am tending to think that as well. Just bring some neo socks and my Shark skin long sleeve pull over....and maybe a wool shirt just in case I chill.

    awesome thanks.

    Besides, jumping into the cold water in Orderville makes for awesome photos.

    I don't think Orderville in June needs a suit at all. I've done it twice, although in July, but I think a fleece jacket and a hat in a dry bag would be fine.

    Came out orderville on Sunday. Tshirts and shorts for all were perfect. Seemed like quite a few changes in there since I last went through.

    I did Englestead/Orderville a couple weeks ago and all I took were neo socks and a the long sleeve Sharkskin. Worked perfect, and I tend to run cold.
