“A couple geese flew over, which is the first waterfowl I’ve seen. Maybe they were greeting me, or maybe they were just telling me to leave. Not sure what the omen was.” – Will Steger, April 24, 2018. Day 36.

    Hello from Ely! We still have good ice here too. Close to 30” on the big lakes. Crust skiing has been fantastic!
    Fun following your trip. Looks like the lack of Spring is making the old man work. Good to know your body is holding up.
    On your next re- supply say hello to Dave.
