Hi Bill,

Don’t tell Mom but Powder likes Rum! The forward armor on Ginger is complete.


We stayed Thursday night at the Mobile convention center. What? A duck boat! Overloaded with the bow down. Sorry you will never catch me on one. We headed out toward the Gulf! Sea foam and fins. Yes our first Dolphins this trip. Also Powder got to see some birds close up around the boat and she got excited. At Dog River Marina tonight. They let you stay a night free with electric if you get 50 gallons of fuel! Great deal. Headed toward Pensacola Florida Tomorrow. We are a little low on fuel to get to Carrabelle. But still moving forward. If anyone would like to help out we set up a GoFundMe account. The link is above. Any help will be paid forward again and used to help others along the way!

Mississippi River At Quincy, Illinois

Paddler Rescued From Quincy Bay........

 

Friday morning, an experienced kayaker had to be rescued from a tree after his kayak capsized in the swift currents of the flood-swelled Quincy Bay.

 

Lieutenant Chris Costigan of the Tri-Township Fire Department reports that the kayaker was paddling near the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway Bridge when he got caught up in a strainer and capsized his boat.

 

The paddler initially clung to a log, but was later able to climb into the fork of a tree approximately 30 feet downstream from his boat, which was pinned against the bridge.  He was able to call 911 with his cell phone........
