Wifey B: It's a wonderful trip and it's only possible to see so little of it in one trip. We did it in 2016 and planning again, maybe 2021 or 2022 or so. We technically haven't completed it as we kept the boat on the TN River this year and doing the TN and Cumberland and plan the Ohio next year and perhaps the Missouri. So figure started 2016 we'll actually cross our line in 2018 or could be 2019.
We figure we saw about 1/3 of what we really would have liked to see and about 5% of what there is to see. We spent 2-3 days in places where we could easily have enjoyed a week. We stopped in less than half the places we initially listed.
It's like you spending time on Lake Superior. We did too. But most loopers don't ever touch it. Some never touch Lake Ontario. We did spend a long time in Chicago, but it's one of those cities with so much to see, you wouldn't see it in a lifetime and we'd never been there. Well, hubby had flown through the airports but that doesn't count. It's just a great way to see the country.
