New China, MI - turns out to be one of the friendliest places on the map; neighbor of the Regatta Bar sees Manitou nesting on the wind torn shoreline and invites him over to camp in his yard with fire pit, running water and flush toilets. Could it get any better? Manitou takes a stroll a round the yard and sees a small girls bike missing 16'" wheels; "could it be?", he asks himself --- that would be awkward. (see previous post)
Swaddled and all tuck in, Manitou waits it out in his new digs; Manitou reports he would rather be out on the water, but this is a great opportunity to meet some really cool people and share the moment.
