On August 3, after 7992 miles, we crossed our wake in Buffalo NY, completing America's Great Loop cruise. It has been a dream of ours for years and we consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have been able to make that dream a reality. For anyone who is thinking about doing the loop, I urge you to take on one of the last great boating adventures, cast off your lines and head off into the unknown. You will be rewarded with a journey like no other, will meet untold numbers of like minded cruisers, and will make friendships and memories to last a lifetime. A tip of the cap to fellow CSR members we met along the way: The gang from Lake Michigan who allowed us to crash your rendevous last August in South Haven, Jeff and Wendy then again contacted us when in Ft Myers, thank you for taking time from your vacation to catch up with us. Sistership owners Kurt from Chicago and Bill from Beaufort, your kindness and local knowledge were much appreciated. AJ and Amy from Gimme Time, it was fun having docktails along the Trent Severn in Canada when we both were looping. To the many others that recognized the CSR burgee flying from our light staff and would say hello or shout out on the radio, it was nice to know we had friends in places we had never been.
