Circumnavigating Lake Superior in a Solo Kayak—Benjamin Herman at Madeline Island Museum
Circumnavigating Lake Superior in a Solo Kayak—Benjamin Herman
25 years in coming!
In 1992, two close family friends recorded a circumnavigation of Lake Superior. Those stories made an impression and 25 years later a big support network helped Ben reach that goal and complete the trip in 53 days.
With hand-me down maps to big waves, water, and weather the trip had much to offer: A busted skeg, a fly-in from Sweden, and a chance meeting with a couple of candy loaded circumnavigators on day 40.
