Mississippi River Day 100 (Mile #542, 1785.5 miles)
This morning wasn't as cold as yesterday, so I guess I'm doing a good job of getting south. There was a slight wind, but today had a lot of turns and bends, so I wasn't facing in one direction long enough for it to really bother me at all. After the first few hours the barge traffic died out almost entirely, and after that the day was just monotonous. The only really interesting thing was seeming some of the flooded out areas from the previous weeks of rain.
