Thursday on Lake Effect:
Today on the show, we explore the many ways in which journeys – both physical and mental – can shape us. First, we learn how an introvert came to enjoy the interactions he had with people over the course of a cross-country bike trip. Then a Milwaukee man publishes the remarkable travel journal his father kept on the trip of a lifetime - two months in Europe in 1936. Plus we learn how a cross-country trek by two Wisconsin veterans and helped them deal with the aftermath of combat, and hear an essay from our contributor who is currently hiking the Appalachian Trail.
