In June I had an event at
Great Lakes Book & Supply in Big Rapids, Michigan.
It was there that master woodcarver,
presented me with a walking stick
that she created for me.

A map of my first adventure around Lake Michigan
This is more than a walking stick, though, it is a work of art that chronicles my adventures.
The state flag
My second adventure
It even has a compass embedded in the top so I never lose my way.
