The idea was: a road trip around all the Great Lakes. It all started as a joke (moreover an attempt to impress my girlfriend with the thought of an adventure) and she actually bit into it. She was actually right on board. So there it was. We took off school/work for 2 weeks in mid-August then set out with a full tank of gas and eager minds. Early morning wake ups, days filled with hiking and sight seeing, and nights spent in the tent, random hotels, and even one in the back of the car; all of these amount to stories I will be telling for the rest of time. Go.
