Swimming Across the Gulf of Mexico

Is it possible for a human being to swim across the Gulf of Mexico? I bet some day someone tries and succeeds. I had a dream about this, but then I woke up and remembered although I am a good swimmer, I am not that good!

In the Gulf of Mexico we all know that the water temperatures are warm enough not to worry about hypothermia and a person would be able to swim with those issues. Of course they would need some high-tech gear and here are some thoughts; when they’re ready to sleep after a days swim they would press a button on their swimsuit and it would make into a raft and set the GPS so they know how far they have gone.

When they are done sleeping they can press another button and the raft will collapse back into their swimming trunks. You are probably thinking this technology does not exist? But it does exist and it could easily be retrofitted so someone could swim across the Gulf of Mexico.

What about sharks you say? Well on your swim trunks could be a solar powered unit, which would sense for sharks and when necessary send out an electrical impulse to make them go away. This technology also exists too.

Who might try to swim across the Gulf of Mexico? Well, someone has already swam from Cuba to Key West Florida and that is nearly 90 miles. A Frenchman in a canoe rowed across the Pacific Ocean. There have been people who have jogged across Australia and people who have jogged across United States. Someday some superhuman Olympic caliber athlete with the stamina and ability will indeed try to swim across the Gulf of Mexico. It will most likely happen in our lifetime and we will witness this event.
