We'll launch at Troy NY, cross the Hudson to the Erie Canal. We'll follow the Erie to the west to Three Rivers. From there we'll take the Oswego Canal to Lake Ontario. After we cross Ontario we'll transit the Trent Severn waterway to Georgian Bay on Lake Huron. We'll cruise Huron and Michigan and exit the Lakes at Chicago. We'll follow the Illinois to the Mississippi, then down river to the Ohio River from there we'll cruise the Tennessee Tombigbee waterway to the Gulf of Mexico at Mobile Alabama. We'll winter over in Florida and head up the Atlantic ICW in the spring.

Steve and Libbey, I look forward to following your progress on the Great Loop! I found your blog thru the Downeast forums. I plan on doing the loop in a few years when I retire. I wish you safe travelling!
