The river system is a very busy place with lots of barge traffic. I am amazed at how many barges a tow boat can push down or up river. The most we have seen so far is 7 x 7, that's 7 wide and 7 long. Here are just some random shots of sites along the rivers. We ran into allot of rain the 3 days we were on the Mississippi, the coast guard said the river would rise about 10 feet. We anchored in a small channel since there are no marinas on the river, With the rain, we did not get any sleep, always checking the water for debris, like half a tree floating down the river, and making sure the anchor was still holding as the current increased. I'm not a big fan of anchoring out, but a necessity.
The Ohio river was a one day trip we spent the night anchored next to a casino boat and headed to the Tennessee river the next day.
The boat is running well, and we are having a good time, meeting allot of new people. We miss all our friends and family back home. Paul and Evie, it was good to hear from you, thanks for the voice message. Marilyn, thanks for letting Linda read the blog on your computer. Hello to everyone.
