I would do the sound...East River...45 mile day hops on the Jersey coast...NYC to Manesquan to Atlantic City to Cape May...up the Deleware through the canal and then down the Chesapeake.

I know your sounding bleak...but no need to give your life away for a woman

If you need help going down the Chesapeake I will make myself available, This route is a safe one and in Oct/ Nov a pretty one with wind usuallly good on the Chesapeake,

My wife and I went from NYC this way this summer to Baltimore in 6 days,

Dave

I am in NYC and might be inclined to go from NY to Annapolis. I've never 'done' the C&D canal but have gone around Manhattan several times.
There are a couple of spots you would need to go with a favorable tide:
- the Race or eastern LI Sound
- East River
- Delaware River, but mostly C&D canal
Keep us in mind as your escape plans get nearer.

Wow! Looking for some answers to questions I had on my mind when I saw your post - immediately sucked in right to the end. An amazing story and even more amazing endeavor. My heart goes out to you - what a raw deal. Not much that I can offer being a newbie from the other coast but wanted to send you well wishes anyway. Best of luck to you.

It's anything but an amazing story . It's an idiot story & a fool's errand , but I have been as touched by folks in this forum refraining from observing the moronic & feeling compelled to point out the obvious , as I have been from their concerned & well intentioned advise . 8 years ago I was mauled by a sow bear with 2 cubs at a backwoods cabin 8 miles from the trail head & had to make my way in the dark back out to the trail head & then drive 80 miles for medical attention . I find the task presently before me much more daunting . It would seem the only viable tool I have to bring to the table is a will . I haven't the words to express my thanks to the folks in this forum .
