Grant called at 10:30 am and said his day started dry but cold and the Crazy Russian was warm but wet. They departed at 5:30 am with a wild ride and 'some drama'. They met Gary and Uncle Al on Grand Traverse Bay and took time to exchange photos of each other with their boats.
Grant wishes to thank his lovely wife for the 61st. birthday present (June 17) of allowing him this week to make this journey, to whom when he calls her, reports slow winds, no rain and no thunder :-)
Special thanks to Hank in Aura, MI for the weather reports, and to Bruce for help with Gretchen-Fetchen.
Also if anyone gets the opportunity today, wish Brian Weber a happy birthday!
