Picture of the Day

 

Australian Loopers

 

click pic to enlarge

 

The Picture of the Day........ was sent to us by Claudia Burris, who hails out of Hoppie's Marina in Kimmswick, Mo

 

Australian Loopers, Terry Devine and Derrick Baan, stopped to fuel up at Hoppies Marina in their boat "Grace Full" a 26 foot C Dory. The two "mates" of more than 40 years are fulfilling a dream of Baan's to be a looper. "30 years ago I read an article in a magazine about someone who did the loop and I promised myself that one day I'd do it, too," explains Baan, in his pronounced Australian accent.

They started on March 7, 2016, when they picked up the boat at Hontoon Island, Fla. From there they came up the Intracoastal Waterway, up the Hudson River, through the Erie Ship Canal into Lake Ontario, through the Trent Severn Waterway, through the Georgian Bay down Lake Michigan, through the Illinois River to the Mississippi River at Grafton and on to Hoppies, where they spent the night. Devine and Baan will complete their 6,000 mile trip in Jacksonville, Fla.

But this is not Baan's first long cruise. "I circumnavigated Australia last year, a 9,000-mile trip," explains Baan, a native of Brisbane, Australia. "When I got back I said I still wanted to do the Loop and Terry decided to join me. We left our wives at home!"

Baan says the experience "has been better than I could have ever anticipated, because of the people we have met along the way. So many people have adopted us, looked after us, talked to us and drunk beer with us... It's been great!"

Even after Saturday's drownings at Castlewood State Park, there are still people swimming in the Meramec River that emergency responders say is extremely dangerous.

BRP Dedicated Plaque To Ole Evinrude........

 

During a ceremony held on Thursday on Okauchee Lake in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, officials from BRP's Evinrude brand dedicated a plaque to the memory of Ole Evinrude, the inventor of the outboard engine.

 

Christopher Berg, Evinrude's global director of marketing and strategic planning, said that Evinrude not only invented the outboard engine in 1909, he invented an industry that is still around to this day.

 

In 1906, Evinrude was picnicking with his fiance' on an island on Okauchee Lake, when she asked for some ice cream.  While fetching the ice cream on that hot summer day, he thought that there had to be a better faster way to move across the water........

Mississippi River History

A Look At The Origin Of Mississippi........

 

While we know that the state of Mississippi was named for the river, what may not be quite clear is how the river acquired it's name.  Most accounts say that Mississippi comes from an Indian word meaning Father of Waters, but did it really?

 

The first references to the Mississippi was in the accounts of the de Soto expedition in 1541.  In May of 1541, Hernando de Soto arrived at what is now the Mississippi River, and called it the Rio del Espiritu Santo, or the River of the Holy Spirit.

 

Rio del Espiritu Santo seems to be the earliest European name for the river, but at other times, the Spanish called the river Rio Grande del Florida. 

 

The later accounts of French explorers, La Salle and Marquette in the late 1600s mention that the Chippewa Indians called the river the Missi Sippi, or large flowing water........
