Abstract:

"This trip resulted in their first book, Reflection on America's Great Loop, a personal, light-hearted, real-life account of the couple's travels while circumnavigating the waters of the United States and Canada. Their newest book, The Great Loop Experience--from Concept to Completion, is a comprehensive guide written to help others plan, prepare, and successfully execute their own Great Loop adventures. It also addresses the questions that these authors/lecturers are most frequently asked by future 'Loopers.' Some of the many topics covered include: Selecting and Equipping Your Boat, Choosing Your Route, Financial Considerations and Trip Costs, Managing Your Onboard Life, Vessel Security, Customs and Border Crossings, Boating Protocol, Locking Procedures, Safely Negotiating the Waterways, Open-Water Crossings, and Great Stops along the Way. This how-to guide will not only inform and educate you, but also hopes to be an inspiration for all those who want to one day make this wonderful journey! The Great Loop Experience definitely has the information you will want so that you may confidently and knowledgeably cast off your lines for your own exhilarating Great Loop adventure!"--Provided by publisher.
