Upper Mississippi

I have read on several forums, how dangerous it is to travel the upper Mississippi. BUNK! We started in Lake Pepin, Minnesota are currently in Davenport, IA. We have had nothing but fun, seeing interesting places and meeting very nice people. The locks/dams, barges, swing bridges, etc. are a piece of cake. We motor, not sail, so that we are always in best control of the vessel. And of course this trip wouldn't be nearly as nice if we'd started in Sept., Oct. or Nov. We love the summer weather, although we did have some brisk cool mornings in May. For more info & pictures - Bob & Susie's Big Adventure
