Keokuk. September 25. Total miles – 479

So I’m taking a full day off the river. I have a convenient Super 8,  a chiropractor, and severe storms throughout the day. Severe around here means tornado warnings. Plus it’s no fun being in a small, open boat on a mighty river during a tornado. (I imagine)

You may have figured I’m not making the miles I hoped for. I was originally thinking 40 a day but I’m averaging only 20. It looks like I cant make the whole trip this year. My goal now is St Louis. Still 200 miles away.
