The initial portion of the training was conducted by Mullikin and his team in Camden with dives following in Lake Murray. Mullikin will lead a month-long expedition in July across S.C., following or in some instances paralleling, the 500-mile Palmetto Trail.

The venture will showcase the SC7 or the seven natural wonders of South Carolina. For more information, visit –
