St. Louis Wind
A beautiful morning turned into a 30 knot headwind (from the South). So after 60 miles, we found a secluded spot that was protected from wind and current to enjoy our showers supplied by Pete and Lisa Gravett (Thanks!!)
This entire trip we have had a significant amount of debris (from telephone pole size to sticks to lumber scraps that have washed into the river. A meeting with a big one would not go well for us so we are constantly vigilant as we skim over the surface.
We are encountering lots of barge traffic now that we are south of St. Louis. We expect this will continue until we reach Mobile.
