Re-Energized for the Last Push

Well they are off,  94 miles left to mile 0.  This picture was taken this morning just before they started the last leg of the trip. The current is really slowing down and the boat(ship) traffic is speeding up.  They should be done tomorrow afternoon or evening.  I am still working on procuring a boat to pick them up at mile 0.  All the Fishing guides are doing work for BP in the oil clean up effort.

This trip will soon come to an end but the blog will continue for a few more weeks.  Aaron and Jake will be posting some messeges in the next few weeks .  They will also update the pictures in the next week or so.

Don't forget August 21st is the open house/celebration for Aaron and Jake.  You can find a map to Glenwood Forest Preserve to the right of this post.  Anyone is welcome to attend.  Aaron and Jake will be speaking to the crowd from 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

  1. Aaron,
    I'm a friend of the Butterfields from Illinois. I've been following the young men's adventure all summer. What a great work of love for a wonderful cause.
    This blog gave me the idea to blog my trip to Rushmore and Yellowstone this summer. I'm using blogspot as well. How do you put the map into the blog?
    Enjoy the final two days. I'm sure the guys will enjoy the air conditioned ride north!
    Thanks,
    Brian
