UKC Update 10

Loud Hydroelectric Dam is one of four hydroelectric dams owned by Consumers Energy and adjacent to River Road. The dam creates a large impoundment which has enhanced fishing, sailing, and boating along the Au Sable River.

These dams create wonderful recreational spots, but slow the tres amigos down considerably. Janet states that Bob and Mike packed light and fast but for such a journey are still doing two haul carries on the portages.

The tres amigos are in a different situation. They packed to camp so their gear load is substantial. Janet reports that it is slow going. On some of the long portages where the wheels are being used it is a 3 haul carry, gear and canoes individually on the wheels.
The Von Bradford Express will make Mio Pond today, or I should say Mio mud bath as the water is being lowered to accommodate repairs to the Mio dam.
They have stopped south at SPOT will show, they may be planning their next move. There are plenty of access points as this area is public land.
6:07 am EST - The Von Bradford Express has activated their SPOT, so they will be on the move shortly.
Looks like the three bears, Dan, Jack and Mark are sound asleep with visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads. No SPOT activation as of this posting,
Sleep well my tired Boo Bears.
