The guys with me toughed it out on the first run but they were really cold. Can't wait to hear from the Canadians on this one.
Go into the Grand Canyon in June, July or August and take a dip in the Colorado River. Once you do that, 64 will be bath water. The water that flows in at the Glenn Canyon Dam is about 47F all year long.

In that water, shrinkage is guaranteed.
