Only 60 Miles To Crossing Our Wake



It's a bitter/sweet feeling to be this close to completing America's Great Loop.  We are anxious to see our family and friends after being at sea for a year.  On the other hand, we have made some new friends on the Loop that we may never see again.  It is difficult to summarize this experience in words because it is just too big.  Every day was something different.  Every place we faced new challenges.  We are so thankful we were able to make this trip and enjoy good health all the way through.  There were no major mechanical issues that we had to fix and for the most part the weather was close to perfect.  All of the places we visited were mostly places we would have never gone to on a road trip.  We really did get so see America from a unique perspective.  The best part of the whole trip was not the food or the scenery, all of which was over the top, but the people we met along the way.  Here is a list of boats we traveled with for at least one day, most for several days or weeks.

Sandman
Moni Jean
Observer
Golden
Dixie
Chemistry
Thistle
Nectar
Proper State of Mind
Dash Away
Second Wave
Noah's Ark
Mary Lisa
Oar Knot
Miss Liberty
Band Wagon
Gypsy Spirit
Miss Norma
Unfettered

We will always remember these people who we shared a portion of the Great Loop with and where we were when we met along the way.  It is the people who make the loop special and we are richer now that we have new friends found on America's Great Loop.

That's the  news and here are some views:
