another 3 way switch question

I'm trying to wire a 3-way circuit in a log house (which presents it;s own problems but I won;t get into that here!). Here's what I currently have:

Switch 1 is fed from the panel with 14/2. 14/3 feed between switch 1 and light 1, 14/3 feed between light 1 and light 2, 14/3 feed between light 2 and switch 2.

Is there any way of dong this without adding additional wiring?

There are many ways to wire this, but yours isn't one of them.

Here are your two best options with power coming to S1:

(1) S1 to S2 with 14/3. S2 to L1 with 14/2. L1 to L2 with 14/2.

(2) S1 to L1 with 14/3. L1 to S2 with 14/3. L1 to L2 with 14/2.
