If you haven't checked out the link to Canoe Across America yet, please do. Darrin Kimbler and his sidekick, Mike, are supposed to be pushing off this morning at the very moment that I'm writing this. We wish him a good time and the best of luck on his 5,200 mile trip.
I heard from Scott Smith yesterday. He had to wait for some rudder parts, so Ibi should be finished Monday rather than today. The trip up to Michigan and back with the boat will take four or five days, but eventhough I haven't run any water miles under her hull yet, I feel we're finally moving forward and close to push off.
