We ended up 2004 going back South as far as Wilmington, NC for the winter. To really get warm we would have had to go another 700 miles south. We would move north in the Spring and do them again going back.

We moved out of winter quarters Feb 27 for the trip back north.

We went up the east coast through the Cheasapeake to New York. From there up the Hudson, the Erie Canal, and across lake Ontario to Canada.
We traveled the Trent-Severn Waterway across Ontario to Lake Huron and on to lake Michigan.

Misadventures - Issue 18 tells how we got out of Lake Michigan and down the Western Rivers to Tennessee and Mississippi where we stopped for the Winter.
Our plan had been to go furthur - to Texas in fact- but two ladies (?) named Katrina and Rita caused us to change our plans.

Misadventures - Issue 13 Back up North (brrrrr!), Wilmington, NC up to DC
In  issue number 12  we showed you the route down to Wilmington. 
Now we had to turn around and go back up the ICW.
