To add to the misery of all this Florence crap. I can’t just sit back and pretend all my pals are having fun. I have to see all the photos and talk about what a great time everyone else is having. This is like some sort of torture. Everyone is boating around, laughing and one WoodyBoater gang all decided to go to Port Huron by boat from Hessel. Yes that Hessel. 180 Miles.
Now this trip, was a trip done back in the day when the factory would deliver boats to Hessel. They would include a large 50 gallon tank of fuel is the story I heard. Dang. I suppose it was easier than rail, or a truck which may or may not have been possible. But it sure is today. Mike Mayer, Chad Durren, NR AKA No Relation Mike Watson And Alex Watson who is not Mikes Brother…in one of Alex Watson’s 25 Sportsman.
At 120 miles they just gave up last night because the wind was picking up. Oddly while Florance seems to be heading more south today. We are still slated for big wind and surges though. What a week
While that is going on..and on.. The cruisers all came into Port Huron. AHHHHHHH! Look at the BLUEness of it all. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, I could just do the rest of this story in AHHHHHHHHHHH, cause does it really matter what I say when you see stuff like this..
And all I see it THIS! Really? REALLY? The dam hurricane is literally now going to go around us.
Now this may look like we are gonna miss it, but, all that rain drains someplace. And we will get the side of it coming AND going. But it is a little like a car skidding right around you. UGH. AHHHHHHHHHHH
A huge thanks to Karen Harrison, Shannon, Gale, Mike, Mike, Alex, Chad for all the photos and torture. AHHHHHHHHHHHH
