Thankfully, Dale's phone service issues have been resolved. These images and videos are so spectacular that I couldn't resist posting them now, rather than later. Happy Father's Day, and enjoy!
6/22/15 Update from Dale via text message: Due to the lack of sunshine, my solar panel could not charge the battery for phone charging. So, I've been without power for around 36 hours. As you can see from the pictures, yesterday morning was dangerously foggy. Beautiful, but a bit unnerving at the same time. As we entered into Dubuque, Iowa, the large number of recreation power boats made it almost impossible to paddle. In spite of all the hardships yesterday, we still managed to paddle 35 miles, but every mile was earned the hard way. We were very fortunate to find a campsite when we did last night as they are few and far between in this neck of the river.
If not for the stormy weather, we would be right on target to arrive in Alton later today. Unfortunately, we have had another setback today, and have taken refuge in a wonderful little restaurant in Bellevue, IA, called the Carousel Corner. On the bright side, I'm charging my phone! Check back with us later tonight for the exciting details about getting here today.
