After a couple years of planning, I leave in a couple days to circle Lake Superior! I’ve been loading up my motorhome, Ecovision, and gathering my clothes and food. I’m also dealing with the first cold I’ve had in a couple years so will leave when that’s on the mend.
Today I’m organizing my Great Lakes islands research and writing materials and maps. I hope to interview as many people as possible as I circle so I just printed out consent forms. I want to talk to people involved in various ways with the islands and to get to as many islands as possible. After getting trained in Garageband at the Apple Store, I’ll record the interviews digitally using a “Snowball” microphone connected to my laptop.
I’ll travel clockwise and will take about three weeks. My dog, Henry, will be thrilled to be in our RV for such a long trip. I plan to blog and tweet as often as possible. Yet once I hit Ontario and the north shore of Lake Superior, much of the drive is through isolated–and stunningly beautiful!–areas where wifi will be spotty. So stay tuned!
Thanks! But as you can probably figure out, this kind of work is way too much fun!
Have fun and don’t work too hard
Thanks! Just finished sketching out where I want to be by when around the Lake. Hope the new technology cooperates and I can find wifi often enough.
It could not have been better in Va–wasn’t Mom the life of her 90th birthday party?! Glad you’re home safe and sound.
Have a great trip. Look forward to updates… Great to see you in VA. We are home again…
Your blog and trip looks great! I’m going to save it to read and enjoy when I’m on the Big Lake!
A great trip. Just finished posting a series on our tour of lake superior a few years ago. Lots to see.
