If you don't already have a copy, you should get hold of U.S. Chart No. 1

Incidentally, we usually refer to these "maps" as "charts". The distinction being that a map shows where you can
go, and a chart only shows where you can't
Yeah, gonna be a long, long winter with my boat 10 hours away... I didn't have a copy of the U.S. Chart No. 1 but it will defiantly be an asset.
Oh and I will update my vocabulary to start using Chart
instead of Map
I'll be sure to start posting more info on the planned trip as it develops, I already have the majority of the first 6 days done and that will put me at the start of the Erie Canal.
