In the beginning

I knew that I needed to find a way to leave pensacola and explore other parts of this great country, I love life by the water and working on engines so why not get a older boat I can live on with the classic style diesels that I love and find a long trip to take it on. Well that was the beginning, I learned of the loop from my Dad and read a couple books from people who have already done this. I was intrigued, a 6500 mile circumnavigation of the east side of the United States where at least 70% of the trip is in protected waters or in sight of land, they call it Americas Great Loop. It’s kind of like taking a huge road trip but in a boat. I feel so lucky and excited to start off on this. It all started about 2 and 1/2 years ago, took me a year to find the right vessel and another year and 1/2 talking about it to get to where I am today and I hope to be departing December 27th šŸ™‚
