Scouting reports by Bob and Mike Bradford have proven to be interesting. It would appear that the Michigan DNR at Mio Pond have decided to lower the water level 2' a day for the next few days lowering it by 8' when all is said and done.
This is going to create havoc for the challengers, as Mio Pond would be a mud bath leaving them no other alternative but to portage this section.
Bob estimates that the portage around is 5.4 miles.
