The first day on the road, 8-1-16

Bill met me at my house at 5:45 and we were on our way to Ludington to catch the ferry across Lake Michigan called the Badger. We arrived at 7:45 and were soon loading our cycles for the voyage.

After having breakfast in the Badger grill we went on deck to see if any lounge chairs were available but they were all full so we grabed some kregular chairs and waited for the boat to start moving. There were a number of people in t-shirts and I knew there would soon by people leaving to get out of the wind, and it worked, we soon had lounge chairs.

We arrived in Manitowoc at 11:45 Central time after a calm and clear passage.  We followed US 10 to the Mississippi and Red Wing, Minnesota where we are staying the night.

Tomorrow it’s off to Gettysburg South Dekota where we will stay at a fishing camp with a motel & restaurant¬† The weather looks good for tomorrow, cooler and clear.
