Well, here it is June of 2009 and I am once again pounding away on this site. We went to the America's Great Loop Cruisers Association rendezvous at Joe Wheeler State Park on Joe Wheeler Lake in Alabama in Oct of 2007, so we will not attend this one this year, but did enjoy the last one.
There were 78 boats there, and 240 "loopers" attended. Many good lectures and lots of good advice. The meeting was held in the large and very nice lodge there. Below I have inserted a group photo of the loopers.
worked very hard to arrange our lives, our affairs, and our
business transactions in such a way as to allow us to be absent
for the better part of a year. We have also done all we can
to ensure that the boat is ready, and have enough spare parts
on board to practically build a second boat! We have about
$1200 dollars worth of charts and cruise-guides, as well as
a GPS navigation system with moving map type charts. We
also have an autopilot to steer and follow a course.
