The Intrepid 4 shrinks down to 3 today. Charlie, my hero, doesn't want to miss his daughter's graduation from Hope College so he won't be going all the way to Chicago. Mark, Dan and Toby are on the way downstream from Portland.
Charlie, his paddling buddy Doug McDougall, and maybe John Young will head downstream tomorrow but will turn around once they dip their paddles in Lake Michigan. You will remember that during his 2008 Odyssey Charlie was stopped short of the Big Lake by an oil spill in Grand Haven.
Jon Holmes was home with his family in Lowell last night. As of 10:00 a.m. his Spotter shows he is at the north end of the"loop" and turning south for Grand Rapids.
Coach is somewhere along the Lake Michigan coast going south. He has a "land team" following in the form of his friend Jim whose last name I don't know.
Still herding cats.
