Weekend plans

If you want to find me at 10 a.m. Saturday, look for me in Point Pleasant WV, where the J.S. Lewis and the Mountain State (below) will be open for public tours. Adam is so looking forward to this, he want to spend the whole day there. 

He'd skip school on Friday to go if I'd let him. The folks on the boats had better be ready to answer a lot of questions.

Adam is slightly disappointed that AEP will have the Mountain State there. He's seen it, the AEP Mariner and the Chuck Zebula on the river, but he hasn't seen the Buckeye State. And he was asking if Ingram would have the R. Clayton McWhorter there, but I said it was not on the schedule. I think he wants to see a Viking-class towboat up close for some reason.

A few months ago, he was crazy about school buses. After a summer of chasing towboats and getting pictures, he's expanded his interests.
