Some go to hell in a hand basket--- others like the Intrepid 4 go by canoe.
As they say good bye to all the well wishers and a big thank you to the community of Hell, MI the boys are off.
The plan is to make it through the portage, where they will finally start paddling down hill. Check out http://www.hell2u.com/ if your interested in what Hell, MI is all about.
Everyone is in good "spirits"! The adventure continues!
