Never-Ending Ooohs and Aaahs

My sister, Alice Hudson (78), and I (79) left Wash­­burn, Wisconsin, on Tuesday September 18 going west around Lake Superior. We had both done portions of the tour as children, as well as the entire tour with our husbands (they were brothers!), but that was YEARS ago. So it was with a great deal of amazement we discovered the many improvements all along the way. The roads are fabulous, as More

Fulfillment of a Lifelong Dream

From August 18, 2012, to September 16 my friend Tracy Johnson and I bicycled around Lake Superior. We had some equipment problems and two full days of rest, so in total we rode 1,230 miles in 25 days. We carried all of our own gear and camped out all but three nights. I am middleaged and not in excellent shape, so I felt every windy, hilly mile. It is hard More

I Was Not Disappointed

Here is a synopsis of my entire trip. I rode my Lake Superior Circle Tour on my bike (really a Harley-Davidson with an aftermarket trike kit) this past July (2012). I did the tour solo and rode it clockwise. I had been planning this trip for several months. Each year since retirement I take an extended ride during the summer. Being originally from Michigan, I had spent a lot of More

We Had Lots of Fun

We just completed the Circle Tour. We toured from June 14-22, 2012. We went Clockwise, through the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, then Wisconsin, Minnesota and through Thunder Bay to Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. The mileage for the circle was 1,325 miles. Next time we will spend more time in the Nipigon/Red Rock area. I enjoyed the bush flying museum in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. It was a great tour and More

There’s Magic in a Trip Like This

My son and I completed a circle all the way around Gitche Gumee on a 4-day motorcycle ride. The following little narration was written by me for my son and meant only for him, at that time. Others have now seen it and some have liked it. We have gone back to the Big Lake this past summer, also in August, and rode into a few of the southern shore More

We Will Do It Again Some Day

I’m writing to let you know that we have completed our Circle Tour of Lake Superior and wow, what an experience. My wife, Nancy, and I left our home in Westerville, Ohio, onboard our 2005 Honda Goldwing Trike and trailer on Thursday, August 18, 2011. We spent the first night in Saginaw, Michigan, and then traveled to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, on Friday. We spent the next two nights at More

We Had a Wonderful Time

Hi, My wife and I completed the Circle Tour this summer. We started in Duluth on July 18, 2011, and drove counterclockwise around the lake and ended the tour in Duluth on August 9, 2011. We were disappointed in the Minnesota government shutdown, which radically changed our plans, however we managed okay. Highlights include Keweenaw Peninsula; Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan; Wawa and Nipigon, Ontario; Grand Marais, Minnesota; Gooseberry Falls State More

Bicycled Around Lake Superior

In June of 2009 my sister Pat and I cycled around Lake Superior. I recall the mileage to be about 1,340 miles, but it took up three weeks. We left our cars at Michigan Tech’s Ford Forestry Center and cycled up to Copper Harbor and then continued west in a clockwise ride around the lake. Our favorite section was the north shore of Minnesota. The cycling was great, the state parks More
