Just passed marker 117 as we went through the first of 12 locks on our way up to the Tennessee River. Weather is great. Water level is good. This is a very rural and a lovely stretch of river. Lots of work going on aboard. Cleaning, polishing, etc. to prepare the boat. The DQ looks terrific. She’s in wonderful shape and there is much love being given to her by a crew of both professionals and many volunteers.

More to come as internet service allows.
