Life has been going by so horribly fast than blogging has taken a back seat. I’m a little embarrassed that I’m now posting part of a trip report from August, and we’re approaching Halloween. So much has been going on–I’ll talk a little more about that later. The Finale of the Eclipse Trip (Our Cargo Carrier Almost Falls Off) After we left the Ozarks, we continued south for a drive through Arkansas’ Ouachita Mountains. After the spectacular cliffiness of the Ozarks, the rolling forests of the Ouachita seemed rather tame. We found a Forest Service campground at Fourche Mountain
We have just completed the process of buying a live aboard boat, and in many ways the process is more complicated and expensive than buying a house.
My little project “My Virtual Cruise Life” got put on hold as we got swept away in searching for and getting a boat under contract.
We have decided to buy a boat and cruise all or part of America’s Great Loop. This is a 6000+ mile route consisting mostly of rivers, lakes and protected intercoastal waterways. You DO need your own boat, however, so we are in the process of looking for a 36 foot trawler to begin our cruise.
