If you haven’t seen it, check out this Forum Post. Thanks to PaNNTOA member Dan Stroeing for sharing this amazing story about how he, his wife Mary, and Tori the Seeing Eye Dog joined the America’s Great Loop Cruiser’s Association (AGLCA) and tackled the Great Loop in a 25-foot Nordic Tug. Here’s how the story begins:
Start in August 2018 and follow us down the Mississippi, up the Ohio River, and on into the Tennessee Tombigbee waterway to Mobile Alabama. Then go across the Gulf of Mexico, down the Florida Gulf Coast, across Lake Okeechobee to the Atlantic coast. Next, go marina hopping all the way to New York City and on up the Hudson River to the Erie Canal. From there, head on to Buffalo New York and over to Lake Erie then up the St. Claire River, to Detroit then on to Lake Huron to Cheboygan Michigan, where we put the boat into winter storage.
The Gammel Dansk blog gives you a great sense of what it’s like to cruise the loop in a Nordic Tug and the kinds of things you’ll see along the way. It’s fun, educational, and a quick read. Just click through the dates in the right column of the blog home page. Enjoy! Go to the blog
