Mississippi River Day 94 (Helena, AR, 1664.5 miles)
Another windy day. The morning was nice, but the wind picked up as the day went on. I kept going because I knew the town of Helena was close, so I got nearby and then stopped and went into town. I was pushing to get into the library before the weekend, but I found out that the library was closed for Thanksgiving Thursday through Sunday. Pretty much everything else in town was closed as well, but I had to get water jugs to replace the ones that floated away. I ended up going to three different gas stations hoping for gallon jugs of water, but the best I could do was a 2 liter of soda and a bunch off half liter water bottles.
