Chetek native Bob Unbehaun dreamed of paddling around the biggest fresh water lake in the world. In 2004, he was lucky enough to do just that when he made a solo trip around Lake Superior. During a February 15 talk at UW-Barron County, noon to 1 p.m., in the Blue Hills Lecture Hall (Ritzinger 234), Unbehaun will share stories and pictures from his two-month adventure as part of the university’s Thursday’s @ the U performance and Lecture Series. His presentation is titled "Paddle the Puddle."
“My hope is the audience will enjoy my tales of kayaking, camping, facts about the ‘Big Lake’ and leave with a better understanding of what to do and what not do when going on an adventure of this scope,” said Unbehaun, who still lives in the Chetek area and works as a construction electrician.
The Thursdays @ the U series is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the UW-Barron County Foundation. UW-BC is located at 1800 College Dr., Rice Lake. For more information, call 715-234-8176.
