Day One to Duck Lake/Whitehall MI

We started off with a great crowd of followers. Our trip was near flawless until after our bridge cross in Grand Haven, MI. On the other side we must have been gaining great confidence with our progress when it happened. Things that go bump in daylight---aren't good. A few scratches, a slight bruise and a slightly messed up spoke and we were back on our way in good spirits to finish the day in record time. 1:30 pm we arrived at our destination to be greeted by our hosts: Mr. and Mrs. "S" in Whitehall on Duck Lake. Our sag wagon crew, "Uncle Jim and Aunt Diane", was ready for us along the route. Thanks for the good food! We had great fun swimming in Lake MI and Duck Lake with a peaceful close to the first day. Thankful and blessed for a safe and timely first day. NOTES FROM BACK HOME: our cash contributions to date have reached nearly $8,000. We are at the 1/2 way mark but still need $8,000 to make the $16k goal.
