The weather on the mighty Mississippi beat us out today. We could only endure the windy rain for 10 miles. Everyone is miserably wet and cold, but we made it to the Jacksonville Campground. Our highest priorities now are to get warm and dry out. We were able to rent a small cabin with simple wood bunks, no heat, no electricity, and no water. It doesn’t even have clothes hooks for drying our wet gear. Thankfully, there is a spring a half mile down river, where we can get water. We are just happy to have a roof over our head tonight, even if it is a very primitive shelter. Got to get the wet clothes dried out before attempting to paddle again. Tell everyone we are safe otherwise.
