About Idea

While sailing on Lake Michigan an idea was born. This is My getaway. My adventure. My Great Lake. Whether yours is sailing, splashing, fishing, or gazing, you know what we mean. Part of that lake is in you, which is what makes it yours. That’s why we invite you to be the first to join us, a few good guys from the Midwest, as we show the world our appreciation for the Great Lakes and all they represent. We’re launching My Great Lake, an exciting new company, where the gear is designed for you to bring those moments with you wherever you go.
A portion of our proceeds are going to the Alliance for the Great Lakes,  non-profit dedicated to the conservation of the lakes we all love.


Anyone who has ever been to one of the great lakes has specific memories they want to share, sporting this gear gives them something to talk about.

Non-profits that are determined to keep the beaches and water clean, as well as the invasive species out.

The dream is to one day create lake-specific festivals, dedicated to conservation. These events could feature bands, beer tents, boogie boarding and triathlons. We want people to experience the lakes, and share that experience.

What I Will Do With $5,000

- Expand current product line to potentially include sweatshirts, baby onsies, stickers, beach gear and more.
- Fund a legendary road trip for the summer of 2012, visiting all the great lakes and promoting our dream.
- Possible begin developing a new website.
