Remembering my first circumnavigation - Lake Huron summer of 2007.

I'm getting psyched now about my upcoming trip to travel around Lake Superior. Unlike a vacation where you go somewhere, spend some time and then return, often along the same path, a circumnavigation is a journey with no destination. It's all about the act of traveling, of being on the open road. Are we there yet? - no, because there is no "there" - when you're done you're home - no need to turn around and head back and with some planning you can avoid repeating your path. While you can certainly do a loop journey around nothing in particular, having an actual physical barrier such as a giant lake to ride around adds a nice bit of romance to the trip.
