Hurry up, Hackney

Sep 22, 2014

Today James Overstreet and I are following the AOY leader Greg Hackney. Greg has motored a mere five minutes from the takeoff site. He's fishing in Little Bay de Noc with large piles of coal serving as a backdrop. It's a gorgeous calm day in the Little Bay, barely a cloud in the sky. No fish catches yet for Greg.   Always the photographer, Overstreet just said, "He needs to catch a fish right now because the lighting is perfect."

A sense of celebration

Sep 22, 2014

The final day of the AOY Championship has officially begun! There's a sense of celebration in the air today, with everyone finally getting to the task at hand after 3 days of cancelations. The temperature is 36 degrees, wind coming from the west at 6 miles an hour.  I'm wearing every layer of clothes I brought. It's hard to blog with gloves on, though, so my hands are a bit chilly at the moment!
