Sailing Beyond Lake Superior: Travels of Dursmirg by John M. Grimsrud

Who hasn't daydreamed about chucking it all and sailing away on a boat to warmer climes "far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife." John and Jane did just that. It began as an idea and unfolded into a fulfilling dream come true. A lifelong obsession of escape materialized in 1972 with the building and launching of their dreamboat. John and Jane went over the horizon and out to sea on a voyage of escape. Departing Duluth-Superior on the western terminus of the St. Lawrence, they crossed the Great Lakes, Erie Canal, and Hudson River to New York City. The motivations and inspirations for this five year plan of escape was hastened by the revelation that youth only comes to you one time. Procrastination scuttles many a dreamboat. It was an enchanting journey,and in more than one place they felt tempted to stay. But there was always the thought of Florida driving them on. Destiny planted them in St. Augustine. The book is recommended for all free spirited dreamers that desire to live life to the fullest
