Beautiful weather awaited the travelers who departed from the Boat Landing at Jamestown’s McCrea Point Park on Saturday morning, May 30. They journeyed in the Nature Center van driven by volunteer Wanda Lucariello.

Each participant received an autographed copy of Figure 8 the Lake. As it was originally published in 2003, the authors challenged their fellow road-trippers to keep a list of changes along the way since the book was written.
