We are about to embark on a waterway circumnavigation of the eastern US, known as the Great Loop Cruise. From our home in Hendersonville, TN near Nashville, we will head downstream on the Cumberland River toward Land Between the Lakes and the Tennessee River. The Tennessee River will take us to the Tenn-Tom waterway and Mobile Bay. Then we can follow the Alabama and Florida coastlines on the Gulf of Mexico to Key West. The route continues up the east coast of the US to NYC, up the Hudson River and to the Great Lakes, through Canadian waterways, Georgian Bay, and around the lower peninsula of Michigan. Heading back south, the route goes through Lake Michigan to Chicago, then the Illinois, Mississippi, and Ohio Rivers to the Cumberland River, completing our Great Loop.
