New York to New Orleans via boat.

Would like to explore a week long trip from NY to NOLA via the river system. Has anyone done this with teens? We enjoy all sorts of travel. I don't want to create (or recreate) the wheel if someone else has done this type trip.

I find this idea fascinating. I would imagine the biggest problem will be navigating the canals and into the Great Lakes. It's also quite a time-consuming endeavor.

I found this via a Google search, so it's certainly possible: usatoday.com/story/…

Also this: www.waterwayguide.com/navupdate.php?area=11

The latter seems to be mostly for marketing navigation publications, but it may be useful.

Please do post back should you further your plan. I'm interested in how long this would take and how you would go about this.

Interesting indeed esp to get answers on a Road Trips forum ;-) Can this really be done in a week?
