Completed the Loop 2006-07. 7300 miles.
Get a Great Loop Burgee - all loopers will look for you and you will be looking for them. We planned to travel with friends and we did spend two and a half months together at various times throughout out the one year loop.
Each Looper will have cousins, friends and highlights that they want to see on the loop. Your list of same may match, but most likely not.
Most Loopers are "instant" family and we traveled with several different groups or individuals. The GREAT LOOP Rendezvous held in two different points on the loop will be a tremendous opportunity to meet other loopers who will become friends.
I am located in Houghton, MI and happy to talk with you - may still have some charts.
After two cervical spine surgeries, my Superior Dreams is low key for sale if you find a friend who would like an "experienced" vessel.
The Loop is an awesome travel adventure!
