Journeys with Jerry: Sailing and Flying the Great Lakes
In this eighth installment of the Journeys with Jerry series, we explore the Great Lakes:
The five Great Lakes of the USA are the largest group of freshwater lakes on Earth by total area and contain 21% of the world's surface fresh water by volume. And, Michigan is right in the middle. In this presentation we’ll visit some selected regions of the lakes as seen from two different perspectives: from the surface of the water on a sailboat and from the air on small private airplanes and a Boeing B-17 Bomber (the “Flying Fortress”). Our visits will concentrate on portions of Lake Erie, Lake Huron (including Georgian Bay and the North Channel), and Lake Michigan. Our visits will include some marinas along the lake shores, some islands, and some wilderness areas.
Starting in May 2020, Dr. Jerry Dunifer, Emeritus Professor of Physics and Astronomy, has been wowing audiences through interactive journeys to exotic locations. The story of Journeys with Jerry is featured in the new issue of Wayne State magazine. Recordings of previous Journeys with Jerry are available for viewing on Youtube.
