All that aside, first-time author Harcum is thoroughly enjoying retirement. But that doesn't mean he's sitting around waiting for the shuffle board courts to open. He is currently exploring new adventures in the Caribbean and South Carolina, but still takes time out for extended jet ski trips from Key West to Virginia Beach with friends. He and his wife of twenty-five years, Betsy, are living comfortably off the winnings from all those people who bet he would never complete the Great Loop.

Larry's next book is in the making, but right now, it's just a dream.
