Jim Favors & Lisa Fava
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
A few months into their first Great Loop trip Jim and Lisa Favors thought that a book by a group of Loopers who are willing to share their personal perspectives about their own Loop would be a valuable tool for those either considering this trip or just plain curious about it. The Favors did not want a book on itineraries, destinations, facts or figures. They wanted the reader to get a sense of what a Looper might experience, how they overcame obstacles, what they enjoyed, how they got along with their crew for such a long time in a small space and, in a number of cases, how some Loopers accomplished the 6,000-mile trip mostly, or completely, by themselves. Even more importantly, they wanted to show why people left the comforts of home to tackle a trip like this, and what they ultimately gained in return.
Great Way to Learn About the Great Loop Boat Trip
What better way to learn about the Great Loop Adventure than by 27 "Loopers" themselves. I loved that all their all stories were told from a different perspective. If you love adventure, definitely worth the read.
