“There’s nothing––absolutely nothing––half so much worth doing as messing about in boats.” ― Kenneth Grahame, The Wind In The Willows
I’ve been around boats of one size or another most of my life. It’s well beyond time I got one and started relaxing on the water.

The extended Tom & Huck Mississippi float.
A couple of years ago I read a Journal by Guy Haglund
that detailed a canoe float from the headwaters of The Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico. I was hooked with the notion, with the adventure of the trip. I’ve since read a dozen journals of similar sorts and discovered The Great Loop
during the search. It seems that most of the people that do The Great Loop trip are well-off retires blowing their grandkids inheritance.
