Day 10 – Rest Day on Bob-Lo

After a restful day I awoke from solid sleep to raindrops tickling my face and thunder massaging my eardrums. It was well before dawn so I got up and attached the rainfly to my hammock. Rain coming harder, I remembered hearing folks at Hawk's talking about heavy rain all day today. Before falling back to sleep I wondered if I should stay on Bob-Lo another day, or if I should roll on.

As I slept, the rain quit, but the overcast persisted.Without the assistance of the sun to wake me, I slept later than planned. Upon awaking I decided to go and really had to hustle to get packed and ride to the ferry dock for the 8:00 boat.

The Kristen D, the Bob-Lo ferry boat operated by Kurt Plaunt and family has now docked in Cheboygan. I'm sitting in State Street Coffee, utilizing the wi-fi and topping of my phone battery. And enjoying a delicious Americano.

After I log this post I'll pedal for Mackinaw City on my way toward Petoskey. These photos are from my restorative day yesterday.

Enjoy! Jim

Song stuck in my head:
Should I Stay, Or Should I Go? by The Clash



  1. Some of those sunset and moonrise shots are what I saw too, Jim. But from Manitou as we were pulling into Little Traverse Bay and Harbor Springs. Oh what a heavenly sight! Am home now, but rain was for most of the day today up there and clearing out for the 4th. Happy Miles!

  2. Would like to do something like this in the fall. Today is our 10th straight day above 95º here. Have only ridden once. You can feel those glaciers melt away to nothing..
