I am in south central Michigan. Paddling the Great Lakes is both wonderful and dangerous. Lake Erie is no exception. You seem to be doing all the right things so far. But I just want to emphasize that on any of the Great Lakes conditions can change without much warning from calm to very difficult. I strongly recommend that when on Lake Erie you paddle with at least one other person who is skilled and experienced. Several others is even better. Good luck and be safe.
