2017 will be the year that we “cut all ties” and experience life by boat and water. We no longer own a home (unless our storage unit counts!) and no longer have a car. We will rely on our own resources and boater friends that we meet along the way.
Gypsies Palace will be traveling at least 5,500 miles from South Florida, up to New York, through the Erie Canal, into the Great Lakes. Our Coastal Journey will Loop around Michigan with side trips into Canada. By Fall we will be in Chicago ready to take the river system down to Mobile, AL.
Along the way we will cruise with our friends that fly in to join us in our water “Appalachian Trail”. This is a definite Bucket List for boaters and only about 100 – 150 boaters make the Great Loop trip each year. Most people dream about it, but few people actually live their dream.
