Ultimate Hugh Heward Update #7

Mark reports 9:20pm

Stealth camped for the night after a very tiring day of paddling. They are at the Willow Metro Park far off the beaten path. Toby's track #50 shows they are tucked into some trees.

Mark stated with the current running deep and fast they made 20 miles and they felt darn good about it too.

Larry Hoff who is out in front had packed a folding bicycle. Mark reports that with the swift current and slow forward progress, Larry is off the river and towing his Sea Wind by bicycle. If I understood Mark correctly Larry will be near or in Ann Arbor tonight.

I do not have any news to report on Jon Holmes of Lowell MI - He is in a kayak and was a head of the Intrepid 4 - If anyone knows his where abouts or has his SPOT information, please forward - Thanks!
