We had a delicious treat for breakfast this morning. Wild mulberries topped off our cereal and powdered milk that Mike Cowan brought us yesterday. What a treat to find these delicious berries!
We paddled through two more locks today, and went 40 miles before we could locate a place to set up camp for the night. High waters have covered the sandbar system. Most trees along the shore are now on the water. Bad for paddling when you are looking for campsites, but good if you need to make up time! Tonight, we are in New Boston, IL, at river mile 433.
I'm the Grey Beard Adventurer. But you can call me Dale Sanders, and these are my stories.
