One year ago today, over 40 friends and family and followers of my adventures gathered on 
Mackinac Island for the Grand Finale of my 
1000-Mile Great Lakes ISLAND Adventure.

We had a gorgeous day for the hike

Over 25 people hiked the final miles of this adventure on Mackinac Island.

 I brought along the walking stick carved for me by Bette Hartig of Big Rapids, Michigan. It was an honor to hike the final miles of my final adventure with this custom walking stick.

This past year has been busy! The book about this adventure was released in the spring and I've been touring ever since. 
This month, I had five events in the Chicago area.
I have more upcoming events [see full schedule HERE]. 

And I've already started to book events for 2016.
I now have three dynamic presentations:
Lake Michigan
All Five Great Lakes
Great Lakes Islands
