Ferry Crossing in Place!
It took 3 trips to the region shown in the screenshot below (400 miles one way) where I knocked on EVERY door within each red circles, spoke to dozens of people (most were very nice), had a few doors shut in my face and left 100’s of leave-behinds explaining what was doing and what I needed as far a dock access.
I just got this email from the private property owner on the GA side where I’ll be loading my Indian Motorcycle for the “ferry” crossing.
“Just wanted to let you know I looked thru the package of papers you had mailed down about your journey and that of young Charles. Pretty gutsy for a 16 year old but back then maybe not that unusual???
Lake Hartwell and Mother Nature seem to be aligning for your ride, the lake level is right at full pool so it can’t be any easier to get on the dock with the motorcycle.
In preparation for your arrival I pressure washed the dock and put down fresh preservative on the wood, it’s as clean as it gets!!”
Things fall in place for those who work very hard to make sure they do.
