Nov 6

Well, I thought that, having said I was finished with my main objectives, that I would show what I’ve accomplished. Oven the 2.5 years (approx) of cruising, I’ve cruised and explored all of the green highlighted waterways. I’ve missed a few, but for various reasons, they just haven’t been available reasonably on my itinerary.

It has been a blast: I’ve seen much of the middle of the country; I’ve met many great people along the way; I’ve had many great experiences both on and off the waterways; I’ve shared my experiences with lots of people who have joined me on my cruising explorations; and, I’ve extended my bell-ringing experience beyond what would have been expected for such a novice.

I’ve seen some of the most memorable sights, and I’ll share a few more:
