We Are On Our Way

My husband and I have been talking about cruising The Great Loop for years. About a month ago we decided to quit talking. We must put our house up for sale this Fall. We've already taken our 1st boating class ABC and we've read several books and done a lot of internet research. The cruising we've done has been on our pontoon boat with a tent, camp stove and ice chest! Funny, huh! But it was fun. We've started a blog also: bobandterrysimmons.blogspot.com.

Looking forward to meeting everyone on this forum. We have lots of questions.

Re: We Are On Our Way

Thanks everyone. We have one last campground host job to do then home to sell our house etc. After that we will begin our boat shopping in earnest. Also will take the seamanship course through Power Rangers.
