Mississippi River Day 46 (Maquoketa Island, 768 miles)

This morning I was ready for the wind. And by that I mean that I listened for the wind before getting out of bed, and decided to just go back to sleep, since it was way to windy to go anywhere.

I did see a canoe with a family in it, parents and two small kids. They weren't making much headway, even with 2 paddlers, so I decided I made a good decision on the zero day.

At 6:00 the wind died down a bit, so I was debating heading out for a few miles by the moon, but decided I already had camp set up, so it wasn't worth it. The wind picked back up around 10:00, so I was glad I didn't go on.
