Upstream into the Tenn-Tom???
We are thinking about heading upstream from Mobile Bay into the Tenn-Tom and perhaps further. Two reasons: 1) to explore that water and the sights along the way and 2) to escape the gulf coast during hurricane season. In fact, the thought is to head out if there is a hurricane projected to hit our marina.
Obviously this is the opposite direction most loopers follow. Our boat can do 10kts and we know all about locking through. We know there is a good amount of tug and barge traffic to deal with. We don't know if the cruising and sights along the way will be worth fighting the current.
Is this a dumb idea???
