I still have my shoes! That would be the relative accomplishment today. It rained all morning which wasn’t too bad. I had my raingear on and forged ahead. The water wasn’t nearly as choppy as the past couple of days. My netbook and my camera seem to be casualties though. I brought my laptop as a backup and had each in a separate water bag. Well, one water bag was just that-a water bag! I don’t know if it will survive.
I made it through my last lock at around 6PM. I found out that if you wait until the morning to go through, you have to wait forever because all of the barges have first go. So I stayed on the river a bit longer just to get through. On the down side, I stopped about a mile down from the lock which means barges will be backing up on me.
It is raining as I write and it is supposed to rain on and off tomorrow. As long as I can keep my laptop dry I don’t care. If my camera doesn’t come back to life, I will have to wait until I get to Louisville to get another. I expect to be in Louisville by Friday.
