1. travel from League City, TX to start the Loop = 572 miles
2. Our trip around the Loop including side trips like the St. Johns River in Florida, going up the Potomac River to Washington, D.C. and going to the Thousand Islands = 6,330 miles
3. Our estimate of the distance to return home is 535 miles (slightly different route) = 535 miles.
The picture at the left shows the Admiral with our new gold burgee that signifies "Loop Completed".
Also, our best estimate of the number of days is about 355 days (plus additional time on the boat in Wilmington, NC where we left Lucky Us for the winter. ...and every minute, mile, etc. has been well worth it!
So, there you have it! We have closed the Loop by crossing our wake, but the trip and the blog will continue for 2+ weeks as we travel home at a "leisurely" pace.
Who knows? A lot of people cross their wakes and just keep on going to other adventures...
