More Locks

October 12, 2011 – Day 34 – 24.5 miles

A thunderstorm of biblical proportions reminded me how little rain I’ve experience over the course of this past month.  I raced and beat a barge for an hour to a lock only to find that it held precident over me and I’d have to wait an hour and a half in the rain for it to lock through before I got my turn.  I spent that time at the obervation deck learning more about barges and the lock and dam system. If you’d like to learn more about these things you can do so here.

    What a wonderful adventure you are having. I posted the pictures that I took at the cabin on Face Book & got quite a few postings on your adventure. Good luck & stay safe.
