Today is the 8th anniversary of my hike around Lake Michigan.

This 1,019 mile hike encircling my favorite Great Lake expanded my understanding of this place...and of myself.

This hike took 64 days
and I averaged 16 miles per day.

This amazing adventure is chronicled in my first book, A 1,000-Mile Walk on the Beach.
