I just checked my records. It was 7 years ago that I drove to Parkston, South Dakota for their Polar Plunge. I just checked my calendar, and it's less than a week till they fire it up outside of Boog's Bar in Parkston [pun intended] to raise money for South Dakota Special Olympics.

At this stage most of the money has been raised. I write this story to remind you to fire up your wallet if you have a friend who is jumping into the water.

It was 7 years ago, and but I remember it like it was yesterday. Dang that water was cold that day. It is true however when they say, you only feel cold for a little while. Once you warm up you start thinking like a Norweigian and kind of like the way you feel afterwards. If you'd like more more information we have it for you here.

If you're in the Parkston, South Dakota area this weekend, check it out!
