We are at the dock above our first lock, waiting for our first guests to arrive tonight. A nasty marina day of wind and rain yesterday, perfect for laundry, some groceries and to equalize batteries. Tomorrow we plan to take off to a "railroad lock," where they put our boat and up to five others of similar size weighing up to 65 tons into slings and haul them overland to the other side. Photos to follow.
Interesting factoid - Last night when I went out to check the stars (pee overboard) I found Wes lying down, his feet facing the sky. His feet were flashing out some sort of lights skyward, almost like Morse code. I asked him about it and all he said was, "trust me." hmmmm... Capt. Jeff
