I couldn't figure out your route, maybe put some arrows on the line.

By the way that is an amazing idea. I've often joked to DW we could boat from Chicago to St. Lawrence river and out to ocean and down to FL, but she says I'd get tired of paddling ..
We live in NC right now. The typical route is to Winter in/around FL and start making your way North in the Spring. Summer up North/Canada, and start heading South through Chicago/St. Louis in the Fall, ending up back in FL.

This is just one route map that I quickly copied from online. There are *MANY* side-trips, etc. that include other areas, e.g., Superior. You are only limited by the navigable waterways in the US. Here is another map with "side trips":

The key to the whole thing is to go SLOW and enjoy. Google "Great Loop" and you'll see 1000's of web sites full of info, travel logs, and the AGLCA.
