Always looking for photo opps

To all you towboating people out there: If you're going to be in my area (say, Catlettsburg, Ky., to Point Pleasant, W.Va.) on a weekend or an evening, feel free to drop me a line so I can get a picture of your boat and perhaps you on it. There are some boats that Adam and I enjoy seeing even if we have tons of photos of them already, and there are some we haven't photographed. So if you're in our area where we can see you from a publicly accessible spot on the river bank, let us know. If we can be there, we'll try to get a shot. My work schedule and his homework schedule may work against it, but we'll try.

American Queen closer to return

The steamboat American Queen, docked since the end of the 2008 season, will return to the Ohio River next spring. The company says it will be in Louisville for the Kentucky Derby, and it will stop at Marietta three times, according to the Marietta Times. Its home port will be Memphis.
