We are hoping to mosey on down sometime in April. We'll see, it may be May before we can get out of here. How has your trip down been thus far?

What is your draft? And are you having any problems with too shallow of water? We pull a 4' 8" draft.

Here's wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
We grounded at the 106.9 on the Illinois River just outside of the channel in what was supposed to be a good anchorage.

We've had some issues other than that, but nothing that does more than make you question your entire journey.

We have a 5' draft and we have run into some oddly shallow spot on the rivers. We've also learned that Skipper Bob must be taken with a grain of salt because, despite the book saying it is updated yearly, it is WAY out of date and not to be trusted.

The crew over here at Kenlake is really nice, they've been very accommodating to us. The two downsides of being here is that they have no pumpout that is in operation and they have no showers or 24 hour bathrooms.

Other than that, for the price, it is good.
