WaterTribe Ultimate Florida 2018 Update 19

10:08 AM

Chief has provided an update to Hiawashe and Bacon's Ultimate Florida as follows:

"Both Bacon and Hiawashe are sort of hunkered down due to weather.

Hiawashe might try to gain a few miles today, but that will depend on weather in her area. I told her shore contact that a weather hold is OK and not to worry about deadlines.

Bacon had a damaged ama and some other broken gear that needs fixing. He also has weather to deal with. I told his shore contact the same thing. Deadlines are not an issue and hunkering down is advisable.

Regarding deadlines, the Results page will automatically show a DNF if there is no check-in by the deadline. That is OK and will correct itself when an OK Message is sent from the CP."

Hiawashe & Bacon are both hunkered down trying (hoping) to avoid tornadoes, gale winds, and torrential rains. Unless things change tonight, this is my last update until tomorrow.

Bacon has not moved since last night, probably due to inclement weather.

Hiawashe has moved up the coast and is 3/4 mile north of Ormond Beach on the Halifax River.

WaterTribe 2018 Everglades Challenge Update 13

Islands have finished CampfireCowboy and Blackbeard (AIs) and LuckyMe/BoatBum (TI) have finished on Key Largo with identical times: 4 days 4 hrs 12 min. Congratulations!!!

Update on Jim Czarnowski, chief Hobie engineer Jim did not do Nightmare this year. He is approaching NW Cape. Good for him!

I'm happy to report that Admiralsnackbar has gotten out of his shallow water predicament and has reached the Gulf of Mexico. Windtern, who was near him, is making good progress to extricate himself from the same mess.

Keith


These were great updates! I didn't see this thread until after the EC this year, but that Wednesday, neither Windtern nor I had any trouble in the shallows that day. There was a storm front moving through as we were leaving CP2 and decided to anchor up on the lee side of an island and take down our masts to ride out the lightning before heading out into the Gulf. After the storm passed over us we got moving a bit after noon.

Overall, I had a great EC run this year, and glad to see people were tracking here on the hobie forums :D

Bacon has not moved today and remains SSW of Ft. Clinch. Apparently severe weather is causing Bacon to not venture out on the water. Chief says Bacon is chomping at the bite and will move out tomorrow morning.

Hiawashe is in St Augustine shut down for the night on the Edgewater Inn beach.

Bacon has moved out swiftly this morning and is on the St Marys River, which is the border of Florida/Georgia in this area..

Hiawashe is a bit north of St Augustine and moving nicely.

Bacon has shut down at a fishing camp on the St Marys River, SSE of Folkston, GA. Big day for Bacon.

Hiawashe has also had an excellent day and is still moving! Wow! She has crossed the St John's River and is heading north on Clapboard Creek. She is south of Timucuan Ecological and Historical Site.

Bacon is SSW of Folkston, GA, on a section of the St Marys River with lots of twists and switchbacks, 7 mi SSW of Folkston, GA. A meandering river and slow going I think.

Hiawashe is moving about 3 mi south of Amelia City, FL. She is 11 mi south of Ft Clinch. A determined lady!

Bacon has stopped for the night in Georgia immediately east of St George on St Marys River.

Hiawashe is pulled over in Georgia near St Marys, the village. A nice day.

Bacon seems to be on the 40-mile portage between St George and Moniac, GA. Not sure what the rules are for this, but a few years ago they were changed because Chief and participants were worried about getting hit by cars/trucks as they portaged along this road.

Hiawashe is still in Georgia near St Marys, the village. She has not moved yet.

Bacon is in Fargo, GA, about 0.3 mile from the Suwanee River. He will take the Suwanee to it's confluence with the Gulf of Mexico about 25 miles north of Cedar Key, FL. A report on the WaterTribe forum says Bacon used a folding bike on his 40-mile portage. I assume that means he was towing his Kruger and all belongings/supplies.

Hiawashe has pulled off the St Marys River in a non-descript area about half way between Kingsland, GA, and Folkston, GA. Great day for her.

Both Bacon and Hiawashe are making great time and progress. Very impressive.

Keith
