Mississippi River Day 85 (Mile #861, 1466.5 miles)

I waited until around 11:00 for the rain to stop, then I took off, bidding good riddance to the town of New Madrid. Waiting 3 days is too long.

It was another windy day, but at least it was a tailwind this time, which prompted the extra miles for the day. It was very cold, enough that my hands were numb after just bailing out the boat again, but I bundled up and kept going. It was nice to be moving again.

Towards the afternoon the sun peaked out, which was nice mentally, even though it didn't really warm anything up.
