Just wanted to say hello and that we are really excited to find such a good source of information.
My husband, Bruce and myself have been cruising since our first trip down the Mississippi
from Minneapolis to New Orleans
. We were in a 24' Bayliner that was 20 years old. We left out with our charts
and the Chapman's on my lap (I was learning
boating!). We spent lots of time searching for parts
and packing fuel
.............and we were hooked. Since that trip we have done the Missouri River, the Tennessee, the Atchafalaya, the ICW
west, the Tombigbee, parts
of the Ohio
and of course, the Mississippi
several more times. We have upgraded our boat a few times since then and still get so excited when we think of all the possiblities. We do live in California
so we boat for a month or so at a time and then go home to work and plan the next trip.
We were so luck to meet such wonderful people along the rivers that have been so helpful and taught me so much.
