Message In a Bottle: A 24 year trip from Lake MI to…?

It’s something I remember seeing on cartoons and movies when I was growing up.  If you put a message in a bottle and throw it in the water.. will it really wash up somewhere else someday?

That exact thing has happened!  In 1995, a guy wrote a note, put it in a bottle, and tossed it into Lake Michigan not too far from Sleeping Bear Dunes in Frankfort, MI.  Earlier this summer, the bottle washed up on a beach along the Gulf of Mexico in the FLORIDA PANHANDLE!  Do the math here… that’s a 24 year ride for this message in a bottle!
