Missed another one

AEP  has a new boat on the Ohio River. The M/V Mike Weisend came up as far as the Tanner Creek power plant in Indiana, then it turned around and headed back downriver. That left it about 200 miles short of where Adam and I go in search of boats.

But if you want to see it anyway, here's a photo.

How 'bout that ...

While an Ohio River bridge at Louisville is closed temporarily, people can ride a ferry for a dollar.

Makes me wish I could work in a trip down there.


Here's another take on the same story.


Meanwhile, this can't be good.


At the other end of the river, sternwheelers are arriving in Wheeling for a festival there. I like this article because it has a picture of the Port Explorer, which Adam steered a week and a half ago.
