"I agree with Rebekah about the floating. First is being able to put your face in the water. Blowing bubbles is good but not critical. Next step is what we called the super man glide. Start against the wall in water that you can stand up in. Squat…"

"I'm good proof of that principle.  (Maybe most of us are.)  If I breathe out, I'm heavier than water.  If I breathe in, I can float."

Penelope replied to Qururt's discussion How to stay afloat?
"If you take a swimming class taught by a professional swim teacher, the first lesson is not floating. Floating is never a key skill. The first lesson is holding your breath under water while standing. The second lesson is blowing bubbles underwater,…"

David F. replied to Qururt's discussion How to stay afloat?
"I can't float.  What I can do is roll on my back and minimize the effort I have to do to keep my mouth and nose above water. Gentile flog kicks or arm strokes to keep a little movement is what I must do to stay on the surface.   You…"

"Some people can't float when they're still.  I can't.  I sink like a stone.   When you're swimming, the movement keeps you up.  You're not floating.  You're swimming ... the kicking and paddling…"

"There are thieves outside the city as well.  Bikes are particularly vulnerable ... they're difficult to secure, difficult to trace, worth a couple hundred bucks, and you don't need a key to start them.  I'd find a way…"

"Well the only piece of advice I can give is not to take the theft personally. Thief's don't really select targets because of personal animus. So don't take it personally. "

"Howdy Ken, If you live in the front range, I like Bierstadt as a first 14er. You start above tree line, and it's only about 7 miles round trip. Perfect for a beginner, I think. I've also done Elbert and Pikes, which are quite hard.…"
