So as the wind and weather Gods play havoc with the big pond, Manitou heads to Lake Charlevoix to east Jordan; from there it is a 5 mile hike over to Ellsworth where he can jump into the chain of Lakes that will eventually get him down to Elk Rapids -- we need a nodded to the wind and weather Gods for 10 - 15 out of the East! Or...
Being 8.7 miles out of Charlevoix, the weather starts to look promising for a launch on Lake Michigan possibly Wednesday. So it's camp now, get some huge sleep the next couple of days and be ready for a big push on the big pond. Let's hope for some 2' waves and a moderate breeze out of the Northwest.
