Tom, Margie, and the Great LoopOctober 28, 2012
Tom and Margie Binzer along with another couple from the Blue Grass Power Squadron left the beginning of this month to travel the Great Loop for a year in their 37 foot Main Ship trawler. You can follow their progress on a blog. (Blewgrassloopers) Currently on a side trip up the Tennessee River to Chattanooga they will return to the Ten-Tom waterway and turn south toward Mobile AL with the winter weather hopefully astern.
I encourage you to use the link above to follow their trip through delightful word pictures and photos. To enjoy it even more travel along with them via "Google Earth". If you don't already have this marvelous and free program on your computer here is the link (Google Earth Download). After a little learning curve you will wonder how you have lived without it. Enter a place they write about in the search box and zoom directly to it. From there you can pan and zoom along the waterway or into town. A link is provided to “Google Maps” where using a feature called “Street View” you can walk the sidewalks and almost read menus posted in the windows. (I am waiting for a button to smell bakeries) On both are links to almost everything in the area.
Don Owen, Dennis Lorenz, and other crew members along the way just completed a trip bringing Don's 38' Bayliner from Williamsburg North Carolina to Tartan's Landing along many of the same waterways they will travel. (We envy their leisurely pace and side trips) Every mile was researched in enough detail to see sandbars, buoys, and individual slips in Marinas using the techniques above.
Although you can't experience the spectacular Tennessee fall colors they will see, you can through their blog stow aboard 'Blew Grass' for a vicarious journey from your landside perch. Thanks and good luck Tom, Margie, Tony, and Stephanie (ED)
