We'll be camping Friday night at the Whiting-Robertsdale Boat Club (WRBC), which is approximately at the red star at http://tinyurl.com/ehoxu (119th St. will be closed for Pierogifest, so use 117th St to get to Whiting Park - the turn off Indianapolis Blvd for 117th St is at the Diamond Tap). Anyone wishing to join us for Friday nite camping or socializing is welcome, as are capable paddlers who wish to paddle 25 miles with Tom, departing at 9am Saturday morning from WRBC. Please RSVP if you plan on coming to Whiting - I can email more detailed directions if the Mapquest map link and comment above do not provide sufficient directions (hint: zoom or de-zoom map with buttons along left side, and pan map in the desired direction by clicking on the dark blue frame of the map). Tom Bamonte is coordinating the Saturday paddle, as noted in his CASKA yahoogroup post. If anyone wants to join us for the Friday paddle (also 20+ miles), please email me: sprenne(at)netnitco.net.

(I alerted the editor and he assigned a reporter). The big crossings are behind you, now it's just mileage. We are eagerly awaiting your safe arrival. If you can let us know your approx. time of arrival a day or so ahead so I can notify the photographer and reporter. Frits Kwant Hi Tom,

Weather outlook for Tuesday (and rest of the week) is good. If all goes as scheduled, Tom will be camped 2 miles west of the bridge tonight, and will be joined Tuesdsay morning by 2 Traverse City area paddlers for the crossing and paddle to Wilderness State Park.
