On Day Two of our vacation, we dropped the kid (CB--choir boy) off at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp and headed up to sleeping Bear Dunes.
Back in Detroit--a man at Pier Park Shows me a fish he just caught.
I was interested and excited to meet him. I had no idea what to expect. It turned out he was friendly, interesting and thoughtful. I showed him how to set up the tent, even though he was an experienced camper, because the North Face Tadpole I gave him had a few quirks.
Lord Keiella is based in the Detroit area. He's planning to leave July 2, 2010 He will be stopping at Pensacola, FL on the way to his foster fathers, to see the oil spill and its effects on the birds, animals, beaches and habitats of the area. He hopes to make 100 miles a day. 60 under his own power, his "Meat Motor" and 40-ish using a small gasoline engine to assist, that he expects to get 125 mpg with. He expects to arrive in Florida, if everything goes well, around July 19th, stay and visit with his foster father, and then ride back, stopping at some yet-to-be-decided places up thru South Carolina, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. He hopes to make Myrtle Beach one of these stops.
You can see more details about Lord Keiella's trip at his blog. (He's a lot funnier than I am!) Be sure to check the list of items he needs to complete his trip here, in case you have anything lying around you could donate to him.
