If any reader is interested in taking a holiday on the Erie Canal in New York State, please feel free to contact Leo if you would like further information about the practicalities.

He travelled on both the western and eastern sections of the canal and also the Mohawk and Hudson rivers and would be pleased to offer any advice that might be helpful in planning your own trip. It was quite an adventure!
