Two Old Guys Travel from Minneapolis to The Gulf of Mexico on a Pontoon Boat

May 13, 2019 - June 15, 2019

Or, 30 days together in 250 square feet


Hi,  We're Verne and Steve and we live in New Brighton, Minnesota.  The lake we both live on feeds into the Mississippi River and eventually to the Gulf of Mexico.  We spend a fair amount of time on our Pontoon boats and started talking about traveling to the Gulf.


I had just retired and had a one year old Premier Tritoon with twin 200 HP Suzuki's that seemed to be the perfect way to make our adventure happen.  We added canvas and screened sides and front, pulled out the front sofas and added two beds, a refrigerator, stove, ice maker, navigation system, radios, inverters and a generator, three additional batteries (5 total) and other items to make our trip less difficult.
