Day # 4

 

Mud Island Marina

 

 

Click pic to enlarge

 

 

We had a short day, starting out around 6:45 at Caruthersville, Mo and ending in Memphis at Mud Island at 2:45.   We took on 93 gallons of fuel, making 270 river miles with 50 hours of generator time since Kidd’s fuel in Cape.
 
A lot more tow traffic today and they’re getting bigger.   Mostly we’ve seen 4x5’s (4 wide 5 long).  It can take an hour to get around them waiting for a straight away and crawling past them.  They are pushing 9 kts and us doing 11 kts some time.
 
Mud Island Marina is nothing to write home about, but, they have fuel, locals are friendly and security is good.  We did make it over to Beale Street.  It was 98 degrees and about the same humidity... a long walk, and even longer getting back as the walk bridge closes at 8pm.
 
We’re in wait mode this morning.  A courier needs to bring some documentation over for the owners signature but we’re hoping to get out of here by 9am and making another 80 to 100 miles... but lawyers being themselves...  could be an all day affair.
 
I’m going to set up the fuel transfer pump and get it ready to move fuel from our reserve supply.  Memphis is probably our last easy fuel until NOLA.  Greenville is a possibility but no one has answered the phone there for 5 days so I’m not optimistic.  Ingram tells me they might allow a mid stream fueling around Baton Rouge but only if they weren’t busy ... cash only as we don’t have a corporate account..etc..time to get to it.

Mississippi River At Grafton, Illinois

Flood Recovery Boosted By CEO, Reality Star Marcus Lemonis........

 

During this year's near historic flooding, the Mississippi River pummeled the tiny river community of Grafton, Illinois, reaching it's second-highest level on record.  The river rose over 17 feet higher than flood stage.

 

The floodwaters may have brought heavy damages to Grafton, but also an spate of donations and recovery assistance from all over.  These efforts include an unlikely source, reality star and CEO Marcus Lemonis, who made six figures' worth of donations, despite having no prior link to the community.

 

Lemonis is the CEO of Camping World, a RV business, as well as other companies such as Gander Outdoors.  He is also the host of the MSNBC reality show, The Profit, which follows Lemonis' interactions and investments in struggling businesses looking for a turnaround........

Chicago Installing Barriers To Prevent Damage........

 

Officials in Chicago say they will be installing hundreds of yards worth of barriers along Lake Michigan to safeguard against flooding caused by storms during the fall and winter.

 

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot says that historically, high lake levels have been an ongoing problem, and the barriers will help mitigate vulnerable locations.

 

Crews began working over the past several days, and they will continue working through the remainder of September.  They will be installing barriers at eight locations along the riverfront, including close to popular beaches........

As the weather we have had this year with Heavy heart The event is going to be pushed till next year. 2020 The River levels we have had this year there is still no docks currently at New Athens, Water is still high on the Mississippi and the sandbar is still currently under water & still alot of floating logs in the Mississippi and Safety is a top priority. All Company's that have donated towards the event will remain the same. If anyone is interested in their Company joining for next year please reach out to me. All Tshirts sales will remain the same and Store will open up next year to purchase Tshirts. If you are interested in a Refund please always reach out if not your order will remain the same and your order will be sent out before the event next year. A date is not set in stone but will be set shortly. Possibly Labor day weekend have a tie up in party cove on Kaskaskia for people that will be staying local. Thank you Any thoughts please post below...Happy Boating

Plans for the club.....
The Clubhouse is insured with FEMA. The adjusters have been through the club and will hopefully be letting us know in the next coming weeks whether or not the building is repairable. We are on hold until that point.
The club got approximately 6 ft of water, covering all electric panels and all AC units. So clean up of building is taking longer while getting temp electric/water going.
I understand there is a lot of speculation, but there will be a club/pool at the harbor
We are doing the best we can and I will keep you informed as we hear.
Sorry, as I know this is not the season you were hoping for.
