About the Author
Ron Stob was a travel writer and photographer for the San Luis Obispo County (California) Telegram-Tribune
from 1984 through 1998, taking readers on hikes, river-rafting excursions and motor trips along the back roads in search
of the obscure and unusual. He has written books on travel from Santa Barbara to Big Sur Back Roads of the Central
Coast, More Back Roads of the Central Coast and Exploring San Luis Obispo and Nearby Coastal Areas.
He and his wife, Eva, write and photograph for a variety of publications, including Heartland Boating, Highways, Power
and Motoryacht, Latitudes & Attitudes, Trailer Boats Magazine, Go Boating, Wildlife Conservation and Bluegrass
Unlimited. Their photographs often appear on magazine covers.
The Stobs have traveled throughout all 50 of the United States and abroad. Together, they learned about boats and
cruised for nearly a year aboard their forty-foot trawler, Dream OGenie.
In August 1999, they formed Americas Great Loop Cruisers Association, a network of boaters who cruise or dream of
cruising the coastal and inland waterways of the Great Loop, on the web at greatloop.com. The membership has grown to
include cruisers from nearly every state as well as foreign countries. AGLCA products include newsletters, map, burgee,
shirts and caps.
Ron and Eva reside with Canoe, their cat, along the shores of the Little Tennessee River on Tellico Lake in the hills of
East Tennessee. They travel and discover Americas scenic areas in their 5th-wheel travel trailer, and explore the
inland waterways in their trailerable cruiser, Lil Looper.
