We started our voyage June 10th. We live in the upper peninsula of Michigan and it is a pretty drive to Crane lake. We made it to Scott's Marina by 2:30 for our 4 PM tow to Zups-which didn't happen till 5:30. We met 2 solo guys, Mike and Tim and had fun trading stories while we waited. We did make it to Zups through the 2 motorized portages in time for a nice dinner, and then were lullabyed to sleep by a passing storm.
