After island hopping the Bahamas in early 2019, they have covered more than 6,000 miles on the Great Loop through 16 states and Canada. Winter plans include the Florida Keys, a possible visit to Cuba for humanitarian aid and back to the Bahamas in February and March of 2020.
Each day Greg and Susan document the day's adventures on Facebook page “Lucky Me Looping”, which has grown to more than 6,500 followers. Susan often answers questions, offers advice to future "Loopers" and shares stories of the people they meet and the many different ports they visit. The past ten months on the page has documented their accomplishments along with some of the crazy stories from the Bahamas and the Great Loop including their off road adventures finding blue holes in the Bahamas, snorkeling the Exuma Land and Sea park, concerns with spiders the size of butter tarts in Canada, how to talk to the tows pushing barges on the Mississippi River, and Greg playing guitar with street vendors in Holland, Michigan.
At various stops along their Great Loop journey, Greg and Susan have a goal of volunteering, donating, or doing something to make a difference. They have completed 30 different “Loopers Care” since leaving home in January. Examples of their outreach includes; donating food for a Senior Center lunch program, building bikes for children through the local Boys & Girls Club, sponsoring meals for groups that feed the homeless, gift packs for veterans, purchasing pet food and cleaning supplies for an animal rescue shelter, 15 back packs with school supplies for a domestic abuse center, sponsoring children’s eye glass needs in the Bahamas and cleaning a public beach.
