7:15 AM: Call from Dan. Weather has let up and conditions look good. They will be hooking up with Coach this morning. Jon's tracker isn't moving yet.
Reminder: My daughter Karen, my blog guru, has put links in the upper right hand corner of this blog to Coach Larry Hoff's blog, Mark.P's (Kruger Canoes) blog, Jon Holmes' Spotter and Toby Nipper's Tracker. Using them gives you all the information I am working with except the cell phone calls and all the historical trivia I carry in my head.
The coach has updated his journal. He pulled off the Big Lake last Monday after a bad experience with fog and an unseen wave that nearly swamped him. He is back in Michigan and should be hooking up with the Intrepid 3 Mouseketeers about now.
Mark P.'s blog has a good 7:45 AM report.
As you can see from Heward's Journal Paddle Days 21, 22 and 23 his party had problems with winds and storms that drove them off the Big Pond a couple of times. One almost brought them to disaster.
