    Does anybody actually travel in there houseboat?

    I don't see much talk about traveling on here does anyone do it. When my kids get out of school and move on I want to travel the ICW mostly between Tennessee and Alabama.

    I would like to. The time is the hard part right now. I'd love to take the boat down river to Cincy and visit my brother. I also want to take it up stream to Pittsburgh at some point.

    Well Capn Morgan we may just see each other then. I am planning to get a Blue Water or Harbor Master coastals version. Summer on Georgian Bay or Lake Huron then cruise back down to winter at Midway or Demopolis. With one or two runs at the Loop

    Any specific plans for the Pittsburgh trip? Maybe we can make the run together. Safety in numbers.

    Made the trip from Lake Barkley to Aurora Indiana back in 2005, 6 days, 500+ miles, $2600.00 in fuel, and the time of my life. Stay to trips of 100 miles 5/7 day range last couple of years since the wife went back to school.
