After an 8 month refit, a broken foot delay, and switching from Plan A to Plan B, C, D, E & F it looks like we're finally getting under way tomorrow. Our original plan was to do a shake down cruise in April, then head for Canada via the Erie Canal into Lk. Ontario, the Trent-Severn an onward through the Great Loop counter-clockwise. Now our plan is instead to head slowly south through the Chesapeake and eventually out towards New Orleans, doing the Loop clockwise at a liesurely pace over the next year or two. After a couple of false starts we're heading out mid-day tomorrow (Friday). Wish us luck. Tomorrow we're heading from Long Island down to the Hudson River. From there we'll head down to Atlantic City on Sunday, and heading up to the Philidelphia area over the next week for Leg 1 of the trip. If you'd like to enjoy the cruise with us pop onto Valhalladoestheloop dot com, and you'll be looking off our bow. Enjoy. P.S. I expect to finally be showing off my YF shirt.
