The project is a GO!

Here's the scoop!
I'll be traveling 1,000+ miles AROUND Lake Michigan on my 2007 Vectrix.

Will take place between September 1 and 15, 2015.

It will be a seat-of-the-pants adventure!

I could really use some funding! Every dollar helps. Seriously! It will pay for food and SD cards (camera media)

The route will roughly follow the coast of Lake Michigan, although on the side-roads instead of the main ones. There's less traffic, the roads are more fun, and the view is better!

If you live anywhere near the coastline of Lake Michigan, please let me know. I'd love to stop by and say hello, and perhaps borrow a kilowatt of electricity.

Please take a look at some of the links. Tweet, Facebook, or otherwise spread the word on the project!

Thanks in advance,

The rough route. Actual route will depend on charging station and camp-ground locations, and how many wrong turns I make.
