Lake Michigan in a Dugout Canoe

@ VOL 1 ON MAY 14, 2015

"That not how most people build boats these days but I figured I was new to woodworking, logs float no matter what, and I was committed."

In Lake Michigan in a Dugout Canoe from PechaKucha Night St. Joseph Vol. 1Mary Catterlin and and Amy Lukas share their story of how, in the summer of 2012, they circumnavigated Lake Michigan in their handmade dugout sailing canoe. After 93 days and 1200 miles, they returned home to the beach of Beverly Shores, Indiana. This adventure has led to the creation of a self-produced documentary and a published illustrated journal.
