45 Parallel Crossing day 3.5

 After being bumped from Shivering Sands Creek Beach Mark and Rick head up hill to what is now known as Kruger Cove; a place to spread out do some laundry and a little work on the sailing rudder.

 Ole school in the field saw horses are constructed as Mark changes out the rudder pin - for the big crossing - no sense having fresh pins in your bag if your not going to use them.

As the boys sit by a raging Wisconsin Fire they contemplate their next move; glued to the weather radio consistency finally emerges and they hear steady reports; wind will start clocking around to the south on Saturday into Sunday morning - opening an early morning window of opportunity.  The plan is to wait it out and follow the breeze across the pond on Sunday.
