Previously we posted a video from our walk around Lake Superior in 2010 and is part of our video collection that supported our photographic record, our research, our website and social media connections, our presentations, and the book that is coming out in 2012.

This is an example of the joy that we bring to our efforts to inspire others to act on their values and do something inspiring and proactive for themselves, their friends, and their family, if not the world. 

Here is one of the many videos from our scouting trip.

Now we want to bicycle up and down the Mississippi River following spring and fall and this project is the planning phase of that project.  Like the Full Circle Superior project this effort will provide education in the schools, coordinate with organizations that work on behalf of freshwater and the river, and develop programs that we will present in person as well as the connection through internet.

We already have numerous partners, but we need to go down the river, record a dvd, write about the observations that we make, and and create a photographic record.  This will ultimate be part of a book and exhibit, but for now is the basis for a greater experience and higher level of sharing.

We hope you will see the excitement of the project, connect with the exisitng website from our 2010 hike - http://www.fullcirclesuperior.org and choose to be part of this adventure of two people in their mid and late sixties.

More videos from the Hike around Lake Superior can be found on YouTube under Full Circle Superior.
