Men on Paddle Boards Make Brave Trek From Lake Michigan to Huron
While scrolling through Tiktok I came across a video from the account Mi_Playground that teased a rather dangerous adventure.
These men boldly proclaimed that they were going to travel from Lake Michigan to Lake Huron using only paddleboards. Well, color me impressed. I can barely stand on a paddle board let alone travel long distances.
"How brave these men must be!" I thought as I imagined the preparation, the planning, and other safety measures that must have been taken ahead of this trek. This is the path that I imagined:
And then...I actually watched the video...
Alright. They got me.
While they teased a trek from Lake Michigan to Huron they didn't specify where. It turns out to be a much shorter trip than I imagined...right under Mackinac bridge at the very tip of the mitten.
This video, obviously meant as an inside joke for Michiganders, gained mi_playground over 118 thousand views and plenty of witty comments like:
Cherri T said: whew, how did you make it that far?
Amy commented: Tell me you're from Michigan without telling me you're from Michigan.
Great Lakes Great Responsibility wrote: What a journey. I need a minute by minute breakdown.
And George H. threw in a Dad joke with: you guys are Superior
