We've cast off

Hello again everyone. Just thought I'd let my old friends know we cast off last Monday for points south (eventually). Have to go north around Michigan to Chicago due to the closure of the Erie canal.

You can read snippets, track our progress and watch videos here:

Cruising Aboard Freedom

Thanks for tuning in!

Best wishes also. Did you make a decision on the mast?

To carry or not to carry, that is the question.

We're hoping to find several others to share trucking costs for the mast. If not, we're not sure what we'll decide. We have several weeks...



Fresh video should be loaded this evening, barring technical difficulties.

Did you happen to get the guide book for the trip down from Paduch to Mobile? Pricey, but the copy I have (on loan or I'd mail it to you) was very detailed. This is it: Amazon.com: Tennessee river, ten-tom waterway: Books

If I get out of here this fall (fingers crossed), I look forward to meeting up, somewhere down south.
