Last night's motel, better known as The Bates, was not so nice. Just one little step up from camping. But, we didn't get bit and, as far as we know, didn't catch anything. Met a group of 5 recumbent transcon riders in Luther, MI. Husband, wife, sister, father-in-law and sister's friend. They started about a week ago and are headed for Bar Harbor, MA. We gave them a couple of tips about the ferry across Lake Champlain at Ticonderoga, NY. In turn, they gave us some tips of what to expect as we continue west. Nice folks. Almost had a major navigation mistake coming into Wolf Lake. Big confusion on the motel's website as to their real location. We thought we had another 8 miles to the motel when we happened by pure chance to stop at a little convenience market for a short breather. While we were eating our Payday candy bar, Martha looked across the road and noticed that the motel had the very same exact name as the one we thought was still down the road 8 miles. Turns out it was our motel. Long story short, Martha's eagle eyes saved us 16 miles. Another great save by the naviguesser extraordinaire. Tomorrow we ride 51 miles to Luddington, MI. Friday a.m. we ride the S.S. Badger car ferry across Lake Michigan. Been thinking about the Badger since January. We'll be glad to see her in person.
The Bates in LeRoy. Very scary.
Recumbent riders heading to Bar Harbor, MA.
Quite a line-up!
Our place for tonight. On the peaceful shores of Wolf Lake. Very nice.
Martha lunching on the shores of Wolf Lake. Microwave mac and cheese, bologna, crackers, and a drink. Doesn't get much better.
