    We quickly became comfortable and relaxed in the Nomad. Traveling through the locks was straightforward and easily accomplished. You will find the lockmasters courteous and a ready source of information if/when needed. The Nomad provides everything necessary to give you a unique, relaxing and most enjoyable economical vacation. The towns along the way are very accommodating and the facilities are clean and well maintained. Pandemic safety precautions are comprehensive and routinely followed by all. Go for it!
