I've followed Evers to the extreme northern end of Lake Decatur. We are idling now, and it appears as if we have another mile or so of idling to go.
There are a couple of spectators sticking with us. In talking with Evers, that's the last thing he wants. He has to go over an extremely shallow bar, which could keep us out. But the area behind it, according to Evers, can be hurt by a lot of boat traffic. It will be interesting to see him get there. And we hope we can get there with him.
I should also mention: There's nothing like driving a boat and blogging at the same time. Don't try it at home.
