This article takes note of the many volunteer crew members aboard who are here simply because they love the boat and want to be a part of this experience. To read the article, CLICK HERE.

Eric Hadley shot and produced this incredible time-lapse video of the lockage through the Wilson Lock, which was about 97 feet at this stage. Really cool! Enjoy.

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.

Here’s our next installment crossing the Intercoastal Waterway.

Stay tuned

Heavy hearts but hopeful for a successful journey.

Stay tuned for more of the adventure!

Here’s the first in our series of videos documenting the Delta Queen’s journey from New Orleans to Chattanooga.

Video produced by Eric Hadley and Bill Wiemuth. Special thanks to Mike Gentry for playing the banjo for us on this cold morning. Mike has a terrific CD of river songs. I’ll post his contact info soon. Also, special thanks to Toots Maloy for all her help.

Stay tuned for more!
